"You have to applaud Veloce for the fringe subjects it publishes, such as this glossy tome on Intermeccanica. With the aid of founder Frank Reisner's widow Paula, and access to the factory records of the Hungarian entrepreneur, McCredie covers the full saga from first FJ racer to the successful replica business." - Classic & Sports Car
"This superb book tells the story of the marque, a real David and Goliath story if ever there was one, and features some rare family photography never before seen ... an enthralling tale ... long overdue and superb." - Total Kitcar

About the Author

Andrew McCredie is a Vancouver-based journalist with a background in general newspaper reporting and editing, specializing in automotive writing. A lifelong enthusiast of all things on wheels, he has written extensively on new vehicles for the past decade and is a full voting member of the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC). From helping a friend restore a 1968 Chevrolet Cutlass as an eager though inexperienced 15-year-old to owning a classic and fully restored Porsche 911, McCredie is never happier than when behind the wheel of a vintage motorcar or elbows deep in automotive history research.Andrew McCredie is a Vancouver-based journalist with a background in general newspaper reporting and editing, specializing in automotive writing.
