About this deal

There were all of these iconic cars that you remember as a kid, or saw in the movies and on television. Whether it's a Fiat Panda or a Porsche 911S, there are loads of great cars to see and even greater stories from their owners to read.

Filled with stunning photographs of the whole cars and of the exquisite details that make car lovers' hearts beat just a little faster, as well as more than 80 personal stories, it's a joy for every reader who knows that a car is never just a car. Each edition is signed by the author, and accompanied by a protective box in a rich tobacco brown that we really appreciate. Voici un bel hommage à un objet d'obsession masculine, raconté au travers d'interviews originales et de première main. Exquisite photos of each car accompany each story, and since cars naturally hold more detail than watches, there will be more photos in this book-of the cars head-on, of their hood ornaments and wheels, and of course full-body shots.Des photos exquises de chaque voiture accompagnent chaque histoire, et comme les voitures contiennent naturellement plus de détails que les montres, il y aura plus de photos dans ce livre - de face, des ornements de capot et des roues, et bien sûr des photos de la carrosserie complète. The Banyan Tree is not liable for theft, damages or loss resulting from your goods being left unattended. Cars are a Status Symbol: Since the dawn of time, material possessions have always been considered the evidence of someone’s status. Franz von Holzhausen, chief designer at Tesla, who worked hand in hand with Elon Musk to design the Tesla Model S prototype, says that his love of cars started when he was two (as evidenced by a picture of him sitting in a high chair drawing a car). Though I have to wonder why Ben Clymer's "prized possession"--a 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Zagato--"looks like a big piece of junk.

Matt Hranek took the stunning photographs, but the story of each featured car was written by its actual owner.The cars in this book are truly iconic, ranging from American made (Ford, Chevrolet, Buick, Oldsmobile, Cadillac, etc. Of course, I loved Ferrari and American Muscle, but it was the 911, the Porsche, that somehow just excited the car guy in me. A. Kevin Costner reveals that he got so attached to the iconic Shelby Mustang he drove in the movie Bull Durham , he bought it for his own personal collection. If you have watched a couple of car movies, you’ve probably noticed that most of them are male-oriented.

NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal, whose favourite cars are trucks-he loves the wow factor of an International CV Series 6.It may also come as no surprise that BMW drivers love a bit of bling and strive for a taste of the high life. He just made me laugh—it was guttural—and understand the intimacy of his interest in cars from his earliest memories. Even with a brand-new Beamer with an M3 kit that has all the bells and whistles, I still have so much love and affinity for my old Merc that I wasn’t expecting. Kevin Costner révèle qu'il s'est tellement attaché à l'emblématique Shelby Mustang qu'il conduisait dans le film Bull Durham qu'il l'a achetée pour en faire sa collection personnelle. At the end of a year-and-a-half of schlepping it all over the world, I literally wanted to pour gasoline on it and burn it.
