With the exception of the Hillman Imp plant at Linwood private car production in Scotland effectively ceased with the closure of the Arrol-Johnston's factory in 1931. The story of the Scottish motor industry is the story of Argyll, Arrol-Johnston and Albion, but of these only Albion survived into modern times. At various times Scotland has supported well over fifty independent manufacturers of motor cars, motorcycles, trucks and buses and this book chronicles the rapid rise from 1897, and the slow decline of the Scottish industry which set in from 1914 onwards. About the authorMichael Worthington-Williams is a member of the Society of Automotive Historians and the Guild of Motoring Writers, a Sotheby's consultant and a regular contributor on early vehicle subjects to many magazines.
