Synopsis: The rarity and historical significance of prewar classic and antique cars make them hot commodities on the collector car market. These are the automobiles that populate the fairways and manicured lawns of the world’s greatest car shows in alluring locales like Pebble Beach, California, and Amelia Island, Florida. These are the cars that bring a hush to the hall when they roll across the blocks at auctions around the world. These are the cars that fill the world’s greatest collections, like those of Ralph Lauren, Mark Knopfler, and various members of royal families. These are the cars from history’s premiere automakers: hallowed names like Packard, Duesenberg, Stutz, Bugatti, Mercedes-Benz, Cord, and others—six-figure and million-dollar machines that thrill Barrett-Jackson audiences and drive bidders to frenzy. Art of the Classic Car features the stunning studio photography of Peter Harholdt (Art of the Hot Rod, Art of the Muscle Car), lavished on the most significant automobiles from the classic era: the 1910s to early 1940s. Every page contains framable-quality portraits of some of the most important cars ever made, with each car accompanied by a short essay from automotive expert Peter Bodensteiner that places the model contextually within automotive history. Complete with period ads and promotional art, Art of the Classic Car is the most beautiful pictorial history of classic cars ever produced.

From the Inside Flap: Prewar classic and antique cars are blue-chip vehicles in the collector car world. In addition to their historical significance, the surviving examples are relatively rare, which drives their value, desirability, and interest among car enthusiasts. These are the automobiles that populate the fairways and manicured lawns of the world’s great car shows in exotic locales like Pebble Beach, California, and Goodwood, England. These are the cars that bring a hush to the hall when they roll across the blocks at auctions around the world. These are the cars that fill the world’s greatest collections, like those of Ralph Lauren, Jay Leno, and members of various royal families. In Art of the Classic Car, noted studio photographer Peter Harholdt lavishes his prodigious talent on the most significant automobiles from the antique and classic eras—the 1910s to early 1940s. Every page contains stunning portraits of some of the most important cars ever made. Each car is accompanied by a short essay written by automotive expert Peter Bodensteiner, expounding the virtues of each car and placing it contextually in automotive history.
