The Performing Art of the American Automobile is a trip through American history that lifts the spirit and entertains the eye as no other, as John S. Hendricks?s singular collection reveals, car by car, the American marvels that created a revolution in personal transportation. Which cars flourished, which faded away, which became legends, and why.
