One of the best ways to remember days gone by is by looking at old photographs. We all remember the past easier when we’re thumbing through the family photo albums. You can feel nostalgic once again with BBC’s TopGear book by Giles Chapman titled MY DAD HAD ONE OF THOSE.
This 140 page small hardback book is packed with actual photos of vintage cars dating from the 1950’s to the 1980’s. Your sure to find your dad’s old car and sure to find the cars you loved as a child. My favorite is the Ford Mustang of the late 60’s and even the early 70’s.
See how the cars of yesterday did their best to keep up with changing needs of the community around them as you flip page by page. Station wagons, soft tops, and stereos where just some of the ways the car designers tried to handle our growing families, our energetic life styles and our desire to have rock and roll with us at every turn.
No matter what your family car was, it was somehow part of the family and cherished by dad. Late nights at the pier, family picnics in the park, Sunday drives to grandma’s house are all brought back to life with this clever little book about the classics in our driveways.
For those of you that enjoy vintage media material, you’ll also find this book a delight. See some of the original marketing photos for some of the vehicles you grew up in and reminisce about simpler times with mom and dad.
