Fill 'er Up
by Bellamy Partridge
1952, 227 pages, b&w photos.
This book is a rare gem. Written in 1952 about what was then the golden days of motoring in the US. Includes another telling of the Chicago race that we celebrate every Thanksgiving, the first auto show, founding the Lincoln Highway, and when the AAA motor club really was a club. I particularly enjoyed reading of the cross country trip by a young couple in a (then new) brass era car and the author's predictions for the future.
