Comments about Volume 2:
I’m having a problem with Volume 2. I can’t put it down. You’ve again produced a splendid book with a ton of new (to me) pictures and information. As usual, the book is of high quality in every aspect.
I just finished reading your second volume and liked it even more than the first. –Bob V.
I really enjoy your books. They have been very informative and full of surprises. Please continue to put smiles on people’s faces with your works. –Kevin G.
In 1994, Cunningham published Too Little Too Soon: America’s Early Economy Cars. The limited edition 146-page book chronicled the development of American Austin, Bantam and Crosley automobiles. Reviews were highly complimentary. This is the most accurate portrait of my father (Powel Crosley, Jr.) that I have ever read, wrote Lewis Crosley, who purchased several copies before asking the author to collaborate with him on a Crosley family biography. However, Cunningham was in the midst of a project that would consume his spare time for the next decade. He was determined to fill a void in automotive literature.
By 2008, Cunningham’s newest manuscript had grown to nearly 1,300 pages–enough to fill three volumes with detailed text and rare photographs. Today, he proudly presents the fruits of his labor, ORPHAN BABIES: America’s Forgotten Economy Cars. This valuable collection may be the most extensive documentation of pioneer economy cars from independent domestic manufacturers ever published for the automotive hobbyist.
