Understanding the Car as a Natural System

DAF Cars; The Dutch Motor Car

DAF Cars by Paul Nieuwenhuis is one of the few titles available in English to cover DAF passenger cars (as opposed to its better known trucks). DAF made cars for only about 15 years, before its car making interests were passed on to Volvo - the book also covers some of this post-DAF period, as well as covering the story of the key technology in these cars, the Variomatic continuously variable transmission, and what happened to this after DAF.

It is a small A5 soft cover book of 32 pages, but packs within these confines a wealth of information and lots of pictures both in black and white as well as colour. Although the pictures are on the small side, some have never appeared in print before. If you like DAFs, or are into cars of the 1960s and 1970s, you can add to your knowledge for a very small investment and impress your mates in the pub with some little known facts!

Copies are available, and they can even be signed by the author, if you like!
