David Lawson recommended this book to me and I was pleased to purchase a used copy at a fairly reasonable price.
Organized by types, beginning with the Lotus 12 and ending with the Lotus 98T, Doug Nye covers the history of Lotus and Colin Chapman over a thirty year period focusing on the F1, Indy and Tasman cars. Not as exhaustive and detailed as some of Mr. Nye's other works, but the volume gives a very good overview of the cars and Colin Chapman. Excellent b&w photographs and a very detailed racing record of the models noted above.
