Weighing in at around 4.5kgs this large (31cms x 31cms) volume
is a predominantly photographic essay of one man’s quest for
hidden automobile treasures in all corners of the world. It charts
the travels of renowned Italian collector Corrado Cupellini through
his voluminous photo archive, which he generously provided to the
author, to illustrate a wonderful journey unearthing automobile
jewels all over the planet.
When cars became redundant, through being uncompetitive if they
were a racing car, or just being old and out of date, maybe broken
down, if they were a road car, they were frequently pushed to the
back of a garage or “put out to pasture” as, even if they had
enjoyed an illustrious racing career or been the epitome of luxury
or sporting prowess, they were past their “sell by date”.
