For Him – The impossible Collection Cars
Dan Neil, Pulitzer Prize-winning automotive for The Wall Street Journal, wrote the book of the year for the automobile collector.

This book is the dream of many to own the world’s most beautifully designed automobiles, but most often only a handful of collectors ever come close. Now, The Impossible Collection of Cars makes that dream come true, showcasing the 100 most exceptional cars of the twentieth century. Each luxury automobile-from the 1909 Blitzen Benz to a 1997 Porsche 993 Turbo S-was chosen for its revolutionary design, magnificent lines, and head-turning capabilities. The book also features cars owned by celebrities like Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Pablo Picasso, and Elvis Presley. This Impossible Collection volume is presented on cotton paper in a beautiful black rubber clamshell box with a cutout metal plate.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
