Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Amazing feats of innovation and engineering, iconic vehicles are not just stylish and powerful, they're irresistible symbols of status, freedom, and progress. Now Cars: A Complete History puts that sense of "engine-uity" back into the collector's hands by providing 50 press-out models of the world's most distinguished vehicles, along with an informative and entertaining account of each car's role in automobile history in a fun and imaginative two-part book. Photos and illustrations of cars, both classic and modern, accompany the celebrities who brought some of them their fame, including Al Capone and the Duesenberg Model J, Sean Connery's James Bond in the Aston Martin DB5, and Steve McQueen with the Ford Mustang Mark 1 in Bullitt. From social and cultural history to the advancement of technological innovation, readers will learn everything from who drove the 1959 Austin Mini to which car prompted the introduction of a national speed limit.

A novel series of hands-on books for machine lovers! Each book contains 50 cardstock models to assemble. The top portion of each page features a historical overview and some highlights of the machine to construct, while the lower section contains the full color, punch-out pieces. A section in the back of each book has detailed assembly instructions for each model. Craft glue is required for all the models, and some younger builders may need a helping hand when trying to fit pieces together. The hours of model-building fun in each books will result in some very attractive little machines about 5-6 inches in length. - Zach
