Kiwi Vintage Car Collections

Author(s): S. Reid

Cars & Motorcycles

Description: The vintage era -- 1919 to 1931 -- was a brief period of time in our motoring history when only the strong would survive. The First World War was over and many new makes and models were being released but, all too soon, the Wall Street crash lead to a turbulent time for the motor industry and many did not last the distance. Some of the names in this book are still known to us today, such as Ford and Dodge who proved that they had what it took to stay at the top of their game. Others, though, such as Oakland, Erskine and Jewett, were in production for only a short period of time and have been long forgotten by most. Meet the Kiwis who have taken the time to lovingly restore these vintage beauties and, in doing so, know the real joy it is to own some of the great names from our motoring past.
