Paul Parker (Author). Ships from and sold by hkstrength. Like the book on the 1950s, this is another excellent book, with very good photos, and very informative captions that provide a realistic look on an era. Only 5 left in stock (more on the way). Very useful for those of us who weren't there to live it. The paper and printing quality isn't great, but it is a great value.

A proper coffee-table car book ought to be heavy on the grainy action photos, light on the words, and include photographs of Škoda 1101 Sports and Renault 4CVs at Le Mans. Sports Car Racing In Camera, 1950-59 qualifies for inclusion in even the most crowded coffee-table real estate. In fact, this shot of Ak Miller from the 1954 Carrera Panamericana is going to be sliced out, framed, and hung on my office wall.

This is the fourth of Paul Parker's "In Camera" books that I've head the pleasure of reading and it is as excellent as the others. Although the photos are wonderful, what sets these books apart from many other racing picture books are Parker's insightful captions. You wouldn't think that photo captions could be exciting or funny, but Parker really brings the drivers, cars and times to life in a very few words.

Unfortunately, this title seems to have had a very spotty print run. The first copy I purchased (from another source) had a broken binding and pages that weren't cut cleanly. The second copy I purchased (this time from Amazon) had ink smeared over one of the few color pages. The third copy (exchanged by Amazon for the returned second copy) seems fine. I haven't encountered these quality control problems with the other books in the series. Do yourself a favor and check your copy as soon as it arrives.

But, with that aside, this is a wonderful book!

One of my favorite car books, great period photos and well written text.

I COULD SEE A FEW OF THESE CARS OR THEIR CIVILIAN OFFSPRING ON THE ROADS IN THE LATE 50'S AND SIXTIES.
THE YEAR BY YEAR FORMAT SEEMS TEDIOUS, BUT THE VERBIAGE MAKES UP FOR IT. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW THE FORCES THAT DROVE SPORTS.RACING CARS IN THOSE FORMATIVE YEARS, THIS IS AN EXCELLENT BOOK.
I SAW THESE CARS AND SOME OF THE AMERICAN AND A COUPLE OF EUROPEAN DRIVER'S AT CALIFORNIA EVENTS. AND MANY YEARS LATER, AT THE MONTERREY HISTORICALS.
I DROVE A T.C M.G AND RODE TO COLLEGE IN BOTH AN ALLARD AND A KAISER DARREN. LATER OWNED THE ALLARD.
THE BOOK IS GENEROUS IN COVERAGES OF THE CARS, DRIVERS AND SURROUNDING PERSONALITIES. POLITICS AND VARIOUS COUNTRY'S QUIRKS ARE WELL EXPLAINED.
CLEARLY, IT WAS A VERY SERIOUS WAY TO HAVE A LOT OF FUN. IT SOUNDED AND SMELLED RIGHT. THERE'S PORSCHE'S AND ALL OTHERS, WITH THE ENGINES IN FRONT WHERE THEY BELONG!
THE BOOK CONVEYS THE WORLD OF THE ERA RACING CORRECTLY, AT LEAST IT FITS INTO MY MEMORY PERFECTLY. IS IS A DETAILED ACCOUNT, FOR A TRUE STUDENT OF THE VINTAGE "SPORTS CAR".
JUST GET IN IT AND GO.

Nice book,thanks
My title says it all. Plenty of action shots of 1950 - 1959 sports cars. As a teenager in the 50's, I grew up loving this era of sports car racing.
