The carmakers’ slogan "a car for everyone" actually became a reality during the Vintage Era of automobiles. This colorful book features photographs of the surprisingly wide variety of cars and models available from the end of World War I to the 1930s. Among those being pumped off the assembly lines were such classics as the Model T in America and the Austin Seven in Britain. This fascinating history also describes how the automobile evolved during the 1920s and 1930s to become luxury sports cars for the rich and famous. Topics include
• early advertising campaigns to the general public
• the expansion of assembly-line manufacturing
• the concept of “Planned Obsolescence” for different models
• cars as status symbols
