Rate this:
Attractively laid out on illustration-filled pages with texts that speak clearly to their subjects, these books review the technological achievements that have helped to shape history. Each book has between 70 and 110 photos, modern illustrations of historical events, and reproductions of famous illustrations from the past.

This book covers the motor car's 110-year-old history, starting with Karl Benz's "Motorwagen" of 1888 -- the forerunner of today's luxurious Mercedes. A few decades later, Henry Ford's introduction of assembly-line car making and his famous Model T revolutionized the auto industry. Other features include classic cars of the 1920s and 1930s, the development of auto racing, and the engineering developments that give us today's cars.
