(B&W/color photos, diagrams, charts, ads, etc.) A thorough review of all things automotive during 1961, divided between general matters (including automobile design and manufacturing) and a review of the year's major races and rallies: the Grand Prix (in Monaco, Belgium, the U.K., Italy, etc.), the Indianapolis 500, etc. Some of the more interesting articles include: "Outlook for the World Automobile Industry in the 1960's"; "Ford: The Car That Changed the World"; "Three Men in a Motor-Car" (an automotive riff on Jerome's "Three Men in a Boat"; "A Short ABC of Coachwork"; and "Dream Cars, Prototypes and Special Bodies."
