Rootes Cars of the 1950s, 1960s & 1970s £16.99

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - Richard Kil­patrick

You know that you’re in for a vis­ual treat when a sub-200-page pub­li­ca­tion has more than 1000 im­ages – and this com­pi­la­tion from David Rowe is a de­light­ful ref­er­ence for Rootes en­thu­si­asts. Take the spot­ters’ guide ethos and put it to­gether with well-printed, de­tailed colour and fo­cus on one mar­que, and you’re there. The text is light and fac­tual, with oc­ca­sional anec­dotes on no­table cars rather than an ex­ten­sive mar­que his­tory. Some­what pleas­ingly, the 1970s cut­off is a tad mis­lead­ing, as the fi­nal pages of the book fea­ture PSA-era Tal­bots for com­plete­ness.
