Automobile Quarterly features articles on significant automobile marques and interesting individual cars, biographies of famous people in automotive history, competitive vehicles and races, as well as automotive art and collectibles. The magazine is noted for the use of both original full-color photography and rare black-and-white photos. Its hard-cover format sets it apart from all other automotive publications. The Madigan Library has this publication from the very first volume. Back issues are kept on the second floor compressed shelving.
