Americans have always loved their cars — and at no other time in automotive history were they more appreciated and enjoyed than during the postwar 1950s. People clamored for new cars, and auto manufacturers obliged with designs that conveyed power and "Jet-Age" styling.Illustrator Bruce LaFontaine portrays the exciting cars of this period in a collection spotlighting the sleek 1950 Mercury two-door sedan; a luxurious 1952 Cadillac four-door sedan; a 1953 Buick Skylark convertible with chrome wire wheels; and the rocket-nosed 1954 Studebaker Starliner two-door coupe; as well as the following: 1955 Pontiac Starchief convertible; 1955 Mercury Montclair hardtop; 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop; 1957 Corvette convertible; 1957 Lincoln Continental Mark II; 1958 Chevrolet Impala convertible; 1958 Ford Edsel sedan; 1959 Buick Electra 225 convertible; and 18 other impressive, ready-to-color models.Attractively rendered in precise detail, these handsome images will thrill coloring book fans and car lovers alike.
