American Beauties is a photographic homage to the 1950s, and a musical evocation of an era defined by tailfins and shiny chrome. Within these pages, striking photographs capture the distinctive, influential aesthetics that made American cars icons of style and power for the entire world. The text reveals the mechanical details behind theses legends of the road, while period advertisements and other materials provide a sense of how these cars were marketed to the public.
