Buckle up and take a ride with these books about cars.

For some, a passion for cars begins with the eyes: sleek lines, attractive designs and elegant profiles. For others, it’s more of a full sensory experience: the growling throb of unbridled horsepower, the smell of burnt rubber, the feeling of wind in the hair as the highway unfolds ahead. And since Ford rolled out the world’s first mass-produced automobile back in 1908, cars remain an enduring symbol of freedom. Here are some books that celebrate life on four wheels.
