The second US-CARS illustrated book with photographs by Carlos Kella and background stories by Peter Lemke.
The hardcover illustrated book "US-CARS - Legends with History - Volume 2" by Carlos Kella presents over 80 US-Car rarities from the 20s to 70s in detail on 296 pages.
After the first US-Cars illustrated book was sold out, the decision was made not to reprint, but to produce a new illustrated book as a continuation.
Carlos Kella from Hamburg is regarded as one of the most renowned photographers for US car culture and pin-up art. In the second illustrated book, over 80 different US cars from the 20s to 70s are presented in detail. The photos come from the shootings for the cult weekly calendar "Girls & legendary US-Cars" of the years 2015-2018 as well as from photo series for various magazines and free works.
There are real rarities, such as the 57 Lincoln premiere, the Studebaker models Avanti and Champion as well as two 52 Packard 250, but also photo series to the 1966 Chevrolet Fullsize Cars or the Pontiac A-Body Intermediate CoupÚs from 1968 to 1972, plus pick up trucks and a hot rod track. A Cuba and Filmauto special round off the picture. No matter if you like it dressed up and shiny chrome, matt lacquered or in original condition with real patina - this volume 2 again offers an impressive insight into the German US car scene.
Peter Lemke lovingly researched, compiled and wrote the background stories to the US oldtimers with their numerous exciting and previously unpublished detailed photographs.
Of course - as it should be different with Carlos Kella - there are also numerous models from the vintage, pin-up and burlesque scene to be seen in this book, which embellish the sight of the historical companions.
