From the turn of the Twentieth Century to the present day, Classic American Cars An Illustrated Guide traces the development of the American automobile, and the social change it brought. Author Craig Cheetham begins by looking at the horseless carriages of old, and moves into the fighter plane inspired designs of the 1940’s, before moving to the cars of today. Technical details, modifications made from their automobile predecessors, their performance and handling on the road, and the public's reception of the car are described so vividly that you'll think you're in the driver's seat. And every car is, of course, accompanied with beautiful images.

Cars have been among the most important characters in many television series. Some shows have centered around a car: "My Mother the Car", "Knight Rider", "Knight Rider 2000" and "Viper". In some shows, the action revolves around an automobile: "Route 66". "Car 54, Where are You?" "Adam-12", "Speed Racer", "The Dukes of Hazzard", "Taxi". Other shows feature cars as messages about the main characters: the lugubrious old chauffeured limo in "The Addams Family"; the family-style "woody" station wagon in "The Brady Bunch"; the Batmobile in "Batman"; the bedraggled Peugeot of "Columbo"; the slashing white striped Ford Torino muscle car of "Starsky and Hutch"; the hotly contested red company Ferrari 308 GTB of "Magnum, P.I".; and the endless project car of "Home Improvement". Arranged chronologically by decade, TV Cars focuses on these series and discusses the cars in relation to story and character. Car profiles include a synopsis of the episode(s), behind-the-scenes stories and complete technical information about make and model. TV Cars is a fun ride through American car culture. The introduction provides a brief historical background comparing the growths of the television and auto industries, including the various roles that car manufacturers have played as TV sponsors throughout the medium's history. Also featured are alternate modes of personal transportation, such as Fonzi's motorbike; the varied customized vans of "Scooby Doo", "The A-Team" and "Chico and The Man"; BJ's semi; and Rockford's trailer home.
