More About This Title Earls Court Motor Show


For decades, the Earl’s Court Motor Show was the annual pilgrimage for car dreamers and buyers. Millions jostled to see the latest models, gadgets, showgirls, celebrities, and with any luck grab armfuls of brochures. The Earl’s Court exhibition center is scheduled for demolition, but the love of the show still remains, and the Goodwood Revival, for instance, still has its own Earls Court Motor Show recreation every year. Now the excitement of the show returns with this colorful history, with archive images of British, European, and American cars at their finest, landmark models for each year, heroic failures, and one offs. Russell Hayes relives the glory days of the past in this nostalgic celebration of the Earl's Court Motor Show.
