100 Years of the American Auto.

Best book I have ever bought. Covers almost every American automobile company that has ever existed from the mid-19th century through through the year 2000.

Apparently, I have a newer edition of the book... this white cover is what the book had in 2000, I have the (c)2003 edition that has a black cover with five pictures on the bottom half in a collage (1903 Curved Dash Olds, 1911 Ford Model T, 1970 Corvette, and a 1998 Plymouth Prowler)

#2, What year does yours stop at? Mine stops at 2000, so I'm wondering if they actually updated the book, or just gave it a new cover and rereleased it.

...and I'm curious, what's your opinion on this book?

I've got the New Encyclopedia of Automobiles by David Burgess Wise. HUGE hardback book that normally sells for a shitload of money, but I got it at Books a Million for 25 bucks. Gives a brief history of every automaker in world history. Not much of a read, but it - along with Quentin Wilson's Great Car - has proven to be an invaluable resource.

#3, mine stops at 2000 too. and I like it. I saw some picture of cars I had never seen pictures of in other books and also learned some obscure facts.

I got a copy of this book super-cheap from a book wholesaler, $20

I got this book for about $15 at Sam's Club...the retail for it on the internet is $30.

#4, I've got a bunch of other car books...including one called "The Encyclopedia of CARS" by Peter Henshaw that sounds familiar to what you described...almost every world automaker I can think of is in the book. ~450 pages...also bought it at Sam's Club, for about $20. But I still love my copy of 100YotAA more.

I only have a few "car books" 1 or 2 on muscle cars, 1 on dodge trucks and 1 one everything (this one) and 1 one abandoned ones found in woods/fields from the 30's and 40's

As far as books go, I have mostly true crime and educational books, and a good chunk of the ouvre of Dave Barry,

I haven't bought a new book in quite a while, I've been writting a series of short stories

#9, Damn, sounds about like me. Especially the Dodge truck book, educational books, and writing short stories.

I write well...always get good grades on writing assignments when I apply myself... I just hate to write.
Same thing with math...I won awards in it in elementary school, and got a ~740 on the math portion of the SATs (without studying, I only took the SATs once), but I hate doing math too.

#10, Nothing ground shaking mind you, just some fiction, that's mostly based around my life experiences to give it that bit of realism that makes you really belive it COULD happen

I'm a good writer when I apply myself (I'm good with dialogue), but I suffer from perpetual writer's block. Every time I think I've come up with a good idea, I look at what I've written so far as soon as the next day and say "What the hell was I thinking?".

I've thought about starting up another blog and writing some serial-style fiction, but I don't know what to write about.
