Here’s THE definitive Solstice book; in fact, it’s the only Solstice book out there, so it’s gotta be definitive. Definitive means crammed with great color photos and in-depth, behind-the-scenes information.
Written by former GM engineer and author Gary Witzenburg, the book’s chapters cover Solstice styling, engineering development, the GXP turbo, racing, V8 conversions, accessories and the Wilmington assembly plant. There’s even a chapter about the Saturn Sky. It’s hardcover, 130 pages and uses an oversized landscape format. Retail price is $34.95 plus shipping. To order, visit www. Amazon.com or click here.
This is the original hardcover book. It consists of 308 pages and 900+ photographs and illustrations. A Century of Automotive Style remains the book of choice for anyone interested in or involved with car design.
Authored by Michael Lamm and Dave Holls, it’s a 100-year history that explains why cars looked—and look—the way they do, who designed what and why. The original hardcover book was voted “must have” by major enthusiast magazines in the U.S. and Europe. It also won the Society of Automotive Historians’ prestigious Cugnot Award in 1997. The book was out of print for a number of years, but you can now enjoy it as one of the automotive world’s best reads and then keep it in your library for handy, longterm reference.
