In this volume, well-known author Doug Nye, has written a concise summary of 40 British automotive brands in the 1960s, from AC to Wolseley, including some relatively obscure names such as Fairthorpe, Gilbern and Tornado among others. On first appearance this book seems to be all text but half way through we come to a set of 24 pages of small black and white photos on glossy paper that depict most of the models described in the text; near the end there is another set of 24 photo plates, this time larger and in full colour. It would have made for somewhat easier reading if the pictures had accompanied the test throughout the book. However, with two different paper stocks, this book reserves the photo quality paper for the 48 pages of pictures and groups them into two separately numbered inserts into the main body of the book. This saves on printing costs. The articles on each marque are interesting and informative and while cars of the 60s may not be as interesting to some as the vehicles of the previous decade, it's still a good, worthwile source of information for the generalist and specialist alike. Near the end of the book there are many pages of specification tables for all of the major models for each brand and at the very end we see a complete description of the cars in the colour plates. All in all this is a book that deserves a place in the collection of anyone who's interested in British cars as well as those who would like to have a handy reference for British cars of that particular decade.
