Malcolm Thorne is an automotive writer and photographer, specializing in classic cars. A former librarian at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, in more recent times he worked as deputy editor of Classic & Sports Car magazine and was a finalist in the Newspress awards for automotive journalists in 2018, as well as the Guild of Motoring Writers’ annual awards in 2017.
Entries in Crowood's Complete Story series generally deliver what they promise - comprehensive, well-researched and extensively illustrated histories of particular models or marques. This latest work by Malcolm Thorne is no exception and focuses on the ever-popular Austin-Healey Sprite, from the 'Frogeye' through to the solely Austin-badged runout models of 1971.
Excelling on breadth and depth, this publication, remarkably, even has something to offer even seasoned Sprite fans.
