Celebrating Automotive Culture
AutoBookMobile is a place for classic car enthusiasts to discover automotive culture and experiences. We cover everything from books, magazines and podcasts to journalism, car art, competitions, awards and NFTs.
We cover a range of transport subjects including Aviation, Buses, Cars, Commercial, Military, Motorcycle, Motorsport, Railway, Scooters, Shipping, Tractors, Trains and Trams.
Other vehicles should find a home within these subject areas such as Fire Engines which are listed under the Public Service heading.
We will try to include as much transport related material as possible, whether it is a new or fifty years old. If it is out there and of interest, we will do our best to cover it.
On the site, you will find information on books (and DVDs, magazines, podcasts, etc.) on all types of vehicles including…
marque history and design books; electrical, bodywork and mechanical repair manuals; books on motorways, railways and waterways; roadside relics and barn finds; spotter books for the railway enthusiast; not forgetting autobiographies and biographies of the people who made it happen from designers to race drivers and books on vehicles in popular culture.

Archives by Month
Another way to search the AutoBookMobile website is by year and month from the Archives by Month section on the sidebar.
However, it should be noted that publication dates, particularly for books, are not always precise. We try to use the correct date from available sources.
Magazines are listed by their newstand/cover date rather than their publication date.
Search by Year and/or Month…
AutoBookMobile does not review books or other material. Our goal is show you what is available from different publishers and creators. However, you are able to contribute to the comment section at the bottom of each page.
We do not hold or display any book content beyond promotional material but we do include links to where you can purchase a particular book. We will include links to eBooks where available.
We display the original Recommended Retail Price (RRP) as found on the book cover. The book may be cheaper in a sale or more expensive if it is old, rare, signed, special edition or a collectors item.
We are starting to see more automotive companies create and sell art and experiences as NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) as a way to engage with enthusiasts. We think it is important to chart their progress.
If you are looking for a specific marque, subject or person, you can also use the search box on the main website menu. Just click on the magnifying glass to open the search bar.
A word on NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens): We cover stories on NFTs on the basis that they represent automotive digital art and are a novel way for companies to connect with enthusiasts. We neither promote nor recommend any NFT offering. If you are planning to purchase an NFT as an investment, it is always advisable to get advice so you can make an informed decision about any associated risk.
Please feel free to email us on the link below or use the contact form if you have any questions or would like to see something in particular listed on the website.
We hope you enjoy the site.
