In its eighth year, this reference work of the world’s 1965 cars, with masses of pictures, many of them hand-outs, some in colour, to abet the tabulated specifications, also includes a long story about VW, a lot of which has been imparted previously, a superficial review of last year’s competition events, some publicity material on behalf of the Safari Rally-winning Ford Cortina, and a series of road-test reports by different people, including one on the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III by Meisl, who summarises his likes as “almost everything” and his dislikes as “the absence of crash padding, the looks of the 4-headlamp system, the noisy door slamming.” This annual is too expensive for what it contains, although some of the colour advertisements are excellent and the many car pictures make good browsing material. — W.B.
