Automotive Book Review

The Standard Catalog of Imported Cars, 1946-2002 is an excellent reference book for the classic car enthusiast that is interested in imported vehicles. It is part of a series of automotive reference books from Krause Publications, and is intended to be a car collector’s guide. The book covers all of the different makes and models of post-war cars that were officially imported into the United States, as well as some makes that made their way across the water “unofficially”.

The Standard Catalog of Imported Cars, 1946-2002 is set up like an encyclopedia, with the car makes listed in alphabetical order. Each section starts out with a general history of the make, and then each make is split up by year and then by model. For an automotive enthusiast, it is fascinating to read about the history of these car companies and their offerings, some of which you may have never seen or heard of! Several times I have seen a car I had never heard of at a car show, and came home to read up on it in my Standard Catalog.

For each year listed under a car make, there is a history of each individual model that was offered, detailing the major changes to each model for that year and providing commentary on performance, styling, or any technological advances. Then it lists production numbers for each model split out by body style (when available), shipping weight, and original base price. Digging deeper, the book provides base and optional engine sizes, horsepower and torque ratings, wheelbase and other dimensions, transmission offerings, and even gear ratios for some cars! Vehicle performance data such as acceleration numbers and top speed are also listed for many models. Photos of each year and model are included for many makes.

The amount of information and the detail level provided is staggering overall. However, there are a few “holes” in the listings. For example, for a couple of Japanese makes, there are specific models that are missing from certain years of the eighties and early nineties listings. I did find it puzzling that the book has so much detail on some of the European makes from the fifties and sixties, yet the information on (again) some eighties and nineties Japanese makes is a little sparse, and a couple of these models don’t have a single photo for a whole range of years.

All in all, the Standard Catalog of Imported Cars, 1946-2002 is a great reference manual even with it’s shortcomings on some of the Japanese models. The information provided on classic sports cars and exotic cars is tremendous. It is definitely worth a look if you are interested in imported antique cars.

Classic Vintage Ford Cars

In the world of automotive, the name Ford is synonymous with the American pride and quality. Its quality and durability are well known all over the world for more than a century. Even until today, you could still see many Ford cars plying the American roads and in many vintage or classic car shows as well.

Ford is not only well known in quality but they have also contributed many new innovations in automotive industry. For example, Ford is the first manufacturer that uses the moving assembly line. This technology allows Ford to produce cars in a faster pace and also made the cars to be more affordable so that more people could own their own cars.

The more advanced assembly line also helped save a lot of time and money, hence allowed Ford to focus more on the research and development which in turn allowed them to come up with high standard vehicles, preserving the pride and quality of American’s products.

This high standard has allowed many classic and vintage Ford cars (which were made at the end of WWI and post WWII era) to be street worthy until today. Vintage Ford cars are still very alluring for many Ford loyalists even though a full functioning condition is hard to find these days. Many still invest their time, money and efforts in restoring them.

Some of the popular vintage and classic Ford cars produced in the 50s and the 60s are: the Fairlane, Thunderbird, Falcon, Galaxie, Torino, and of course, the Mustang. Many of these vintage models were reminiscent of the muscle cars that dominated the American automotive industry during that era. Big powerful and roaring engines were typical of these muscle cars. These cars were unmistakenly American.

When it comes to Ford classic car, it is the Ford Mustang that has captured the minds of many American teenagers. They saw it as a powerful and sexy vehicle that they wanted to have one day. Even the Hollywood films sometimes used the Mustang in their movies. This of course helps glamorize the Ford Mustang Classic further.

Besides pride, owning and maintaining a Ford Mustang classic car would entail some expenses. This is because the car parts are hard to find as they are not manufactured anymore. Because of this, parts may be lifted from the other cars with the same make and used as a restoration.
Needless to say that a restoration project will require you to spend some time to look for vintage car parts. And a great place to start is of course the mighty Internet.

You cannot go wrong with classic Ford cars. They are unmistakenly American and they give you a certain pride when you see people turn their heads and look at your car. Imagine owning a fully restored vintage Ford car, it will surely make you proud.
