Synopsis

What's "automobilia?" It's all the great go-with items that accompanied the evolution of our auto history. It's the signs that hung in dealerships and gas stations, the toys that young drivers-to-be played with, it's the oil cans that poured and the dealer giveaways that promoted their products. Automobilia, the book explores the vintage signs, toys, and giveaways produced during the 100-year life of the auto industry, which changed the course of history forever. The history of the auto is captured in more than 500 photos, with information-packed captions and a corresponding price guide. Automobilia is an invaluable reference for anyone fascinated by the story of the horseless carriage, and a must-have for both beginner and long-time collectors.
