A is for Allegro: An Alphabet of Curious Cars

Take a trip down memory lane, with an illustrated A-Z of nostalgic cars from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Designer and illustrator Roy McCarthy explores the models that impacted him during his formative years, from the sludge-coloured Austin Allegro his father owned in 1975, to the Ford Zephyr he lusted after. Words are accompanied with evocative illustrations, featuring cars such as the Hillman Imp, Triumph Dolomite, Opel Kadett, Renault 5 and even the much-maligned Yugo 45. Published by Pavillion Books, and costing less than a tenner, it would make a great stocking filler.
