Cuba's Car Culture: Celebrating the Island's Automotive Love Affair


by: Tom Cotter

Welcome to Cuba's automotive time capsule, filled with classic cars.

More Than They Promised: The Studebaker Story


by: Thomas Bonsall
This lavishly illustrated book on the famous automobile manufacturer traces the Studebaker family from its arrival in America in 1736, to the beginnings of the wagon business under John M. Studebaker and his brothers in the nineteenth century, to the family’s entry into the automobile industry in 1902, to the last Studebaker automobile to roll off the assembly line in 1966.

The book, however, is much more than the story of a family business; it is also, in microcosm, the story of the industrial development of America.
