The fifties was a boom time for Australians and a wonderful time to be in Australia. This beautiful book covers the cars of the period starting from 1948 and the history of our manufacturing industries in Australia during those times. The cars we made, the cars we drove, and a look back at all the manufacturers in Australia selling and producing cars. The book covers the history of each company and how Holden became the dominant make by 1959 and held virtually 50 per cent of the total market with a single model product range.
