Kings of the Road by Ken W. Purdy
1952 Edition
The excellent book on cars and drivers of the first half of the 20th century. Purdy's main interest just happened to be automobiles and the people who drove them. Among other things, he produced 35 short stories and scores of automotive pieces for Playboy. He won Playboy's annual writers' award three times. His Kings of the Road, first published in 1949, is still a landmark.
