Real cars, these!
The first four cars I owned were all made in the 1960s. I liked how they looked, especially my little 1967 olive green Mustang that had a black vinyl top. I was reminded of 1960s cars when I looked at 'Road Hogs,' a book we received just last month. In this volume, Eric Peters includes not only good photographs but also reprints of ads and specifications for cars made in the 1960s and 1970s. I wouldn't want to go back to the level of technology available during those years, but I did get nostalgic when I saw the pictures in this book. For a look at the car culture of two important automotive decades, 'Road Hogs' is a fine addition to the KPL collection.
