Porter Press – Superfinds – Unseen Photographs of Important Historic Cars
A unique compendium of wonderful automotive treasure, as discovered, featuring many previously unseen photographs of importand and historic cars unearthed in the 1960s and 1970s.
With the passage of time all cars became worthless and unloved, no matter how eminent. Racing cars inevitably became uncompetitive and redundant. Many vehicles passed into scrapyards, the motoring equivalent of a cemetery, or simply rotted away. Today we value, covet and preserve the work of great designers, engineers and coachbuilders, and their creations give enormous pleasure to many, whether in ownership, driving, competing or simply as historic objects to be admired on display. All have a story – sometimes sad, sometimes heroic.
Italian Corrado Cupellini was a pioneer in the developing old car movement in the 1960s and ’70s. His mission was to explore, discover and rescue motor cars of merit before it was too late. He roved the world following his passion and this extraordinary book is a photographic record of his astounding journey of discovery.
