Over the past century, the automobile has captured the imagination of millions and shifted the landscape of our cities and our society, altering everything from the way we date to the street you live on.
The car has a fascinating history: a story of scoundrels and scam artists, winners and losers, evolving technology, and more than a few lucky breaks. No matter what your favorite era or genre of car, this interactive course provides invaluable insight into the evolution of the automobile and the hobby surrounding it. Whether your passion is muscle car horsepower or European design aesthetic (or how they may have influenced each other), this is the place for you.
The Evolution of the Automobile: An Insider's View gives you a unique perspective on the timeline of the automobile in ten installments, from the steam engine, to the muscle car, to the hybrid.
