Cars of the Stars - Brian Rider

This is a book about famous cars mostly in famous movies. It started out mainly as British cars and films but we had to include Bullitt, Le Mans, Grand Prix and other movies that were of note and even some cars that were of note but not necessarily involved in great feature movies.  We have still concentrated on the British side and it is somewhat surprising that even the Saint’s Volvo P1800 was built in the U.K.  Some of the cars came from TV series and again I think we captured the most important ones. I think we have done justice to a wide range of cars and were lucky enough to discover a large number of images going back to the 1920’s and even earlier.    I had to include my Uncle Sandy’s 1899 Le Roy which was the first car built in Canada and the first car to cross from Windsor to Detroit.
