Motorbooks is turning 50 this year and is offering 50 books of your choice to one lucky winner. The contest is here on their Facebook page. It looks like you need to make a short video but 50 books is 50 books.
Motorbooks was started back in 1965 when North America was in dire need of quality car, motorcycle, and racing books. Luckily for gearheads, a transplanted Englishman and lifelong car guy named Thomas Warth took it upon himself to feed the need.
From the stalls of his humble Minneapolis, Minnesota, garage, Warth launched a modest automotive book mail-order business selling transportation tomes, many of them imported from England. Thus was born Classic Motorbooks. In 1973, Classic Motorbooks began publishing its own books, which it made available alongside those from leading transportation publishers around the world. This move put Motorbooks in the driver’s seat, allowing it to define the best books for enthusiasts and then engage the motoring world’s best photographers and writers to create them—an approach that continues to this day.
Alongside its own titles, Motorbooks continues to offer the best books from the other premier transportation publishers, fine-tuned exclusively for the enthusiast by gearheads who are just as obsessed as you are. For 50 years, Motorbooks has embraced the gearhead life. Their moto “If it has wheels, we dig it” is rather fitting. Check out the contest and win some books!
