Description

The timeless beauty of antique automobiles elicits an emotional reaction, and avid collectors will spend millions on vintage models for the nostalgia they evoke. Serious interest in vintage cars had already begun in the 1930s, when the Antique Automobile Club of America was founded, and it became popular among wealthy collectors. A model’s value is not necessarily determined simply by the small number that were manufactured, it is a combination of the rarity and the quality and pride of craftsmanship with which they were built. The automobile’s marque, which once appeared even on a car’s engine; the vibrant color and detailed finishes; the distinctive radiator shells crowned with proud hood ornaments—perhaps most famously Charles Sykes’ inimitable Flying Lady that topped the Rolls-Royce—are just some examples of how car-making has changed over the years, and why people continue to have such passion for vintage models. Featuring an exquisite collection of original photography of premium vintage models by renowned photographer Laziz Hamani and an engaging introduction by car expert Ken Gross, Vintage Cars is a tribute to the great automobiles of the past and the undeniable fascination they hold for many passionate collectors today.

About the Author

Former executive director of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, and a Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance judge for twenty-five years, Ken Gross has been the guest curator for seven critically acclaimed exhibitions of significant automobiles in fine art museums across the United States. Along with those exhibitions’ catalogs, his books include Hot Rods and Custom Cars: Los Angeles and The Dry Lakes; Art of the Hot Rod; Hot Rod Milestones; The Illustrated BMW Buyer’s Guide; and Ferrari 250GT SWB . The author of Behind the Headlights , an acclaimed SPEED/TV series, Gross also co-wrote Rockin’ Garages with Tom Cotter. He’s a recipient of the Automotive Hall of Fame Distinguished Service Citation, the Ken Purdy Award, and the Lee Iacocca Award. Gross lives in Virginia with his wife, Trish Serratore, president of the National Automotive Technicians’ Educational Foundation (NATEF).

Over the past fifteen years, Laziz Hamani has produced work for the world’s most prestigious luxury names, including Cartier and Dior. Although his talent for lighting and studio techniques is widely acclaimed, he still appreciates—and finds it necessary—working outdoors in a more spontaneous style. Hamani has published over thirty books on lifestyle, artistic, and luxury themes, including more than twenty Assouline titles, and has produced several exhibitions on his personal work.
