This book features a ton of photographs of beautiful unrestored examples showing just what these cars would have been like when new. It focuses on describing the changes and developments in 17 different categories, and concludes each chapter with a section on identifying you car. Paint codes are given, factory options are listed, and production changes are listed by vin number. If anything the downside is that few of the pictures are of cars from outside the UK meaning that while it will give you an excellent general idea of the cars history and development, owners in some markets may find themselves wishing there were more pictures of cars sold in their markets. Still it is a good place for anyone to start.
