Item Description

If you’re a fan of Dirk Pitt, you’re going to love Built for Adventure: The Classic Automobiles of Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt. If you’re a lover of classic cars like the Mercedes-Benz 630K, the Ford Cabriolet Hot Rod or Packard V-12, you’re going to love Built for Adventure: The Classic Automobiles of Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt. And if you have an appreciation for coffee table books featuring commentary from one of the most successful authors in the world, you’re — take a guess? — going to love you-know-what.

This oversized coffee table book is 240 pages of informative, friendly and fun commentary about some of the most glorious cars ever driven. We’re talking about the:

  • 1906 Stanley Steamer
  • 1937 Cord 812 SC Convertible Coupe
  • 1931 Stutz DV-32 Boattail Speedster
  • 1925 Isotta-Fraschini Tipo 8
  • 1918 Cadillac V-8 Sport Phaeton

And that’s only the beginning.

In two dozen best-selling novels, author Clive Cussler has shared his love of rare cars through the eccentric classic automobile collection of his Dirk Pitt, an adventurer that can be expected to save the day regardless of the odds.

What many may not be aware of is that many of the rare vehicles Cussler uses in Pitt’s adventures are actually members of Cussler’s own classic automobile collection. There are over 50 glorious cars from that collection covered here, each beautifully restored and shared through stunning color photographs.

Cussler is an already recognized authority of page-turning fiction, so expect him to put the same passion into his reminiscences, revealing how he got his hands on each car and even a little history. You can feel his love when he talks about his 1911 Locomobile M-38 (you won’t believe the look of the interior) and how the same model was owned by luminaries like Chaplin, DeMille and Vanderbilt, and what it’s like to sit a century later behind the wheel of what was called “the best built car in America.”

Leave it out and even any layman that picks it up will be mesmerized. For years, Cussler has been sharing his classic automobile collection with a fictional character. Now, Cussler wants to share it with you.
