The Ford Model T, one of the most important cars in history, was built from 1908-1927.  The most famous hotrod derived from the Model T is the T-Bucket, first built by Norman Grabowski in the early 1950s and made popular in TV shows like 77 Sunset Strip and various hotrod films.


Standard Catalog of American Cars 1805-1942 (3rd Ed)
Our review:  I believe this book to be the finest achievement in the history of automotive journalism.  Author Beverly Rae Kimes has put together the work of a lifetime in nearly 1600 pages and over 5,000 photos.  The completeness of this book is breathtaking--it includes car manufacturers that never got past the stage of announcements for cars that were never built! For the larger manufacturers, there are specs, stats, options, and even a contemporary (if sometimes guesstimate) priceguide. You can get lost for hours in this exceedingly well-written book. Very highly recommended.
