" This book stands apart from other vehicle histories in its studies of individual cars and their owners, which adds a personal touch and serves as a reminder that, although car production ended half a century ago, surviving Alvises are still relevant across the present motoring landscape. "

" For the Alvis owner, or others interested in Alvis history, this is the ideal book to give you an excellent insight into the trials and tribulations of the manufacturer of cars, military vehicles, and aero engines in what is perceived as small numbers but of the highest engineering standards and innovation. I am very pleased to have added this to my 'Centenary' bookshelf. Steve Horne - Alvis Archive "
