Nothing is new under the sun and classic cars books come and go. But here, instead of a heavy, large, glossy book of classic car images and details destined to stay on a shelf, is something new. This book is designed to be read as a companion, a book that can go in the car or on a 'plane, and which can be read in full, or dipped into anywhere for a classic car fix. Old stories and new details are presented and cover all eras of our cars. Gathered here is a compilation of the author's published and unpublished adventures and opinions about the design and the driving of some of the greatest cars in motoring history. From 'vintagent' to 'modern classic', pristine to oily-rag, up hill, down dale and across continents, award-winning motoring author, designer and serial classic car owner, Lance Cole, charts the great classic car enthusiasm in a series of engaging essays about cars, car design and the men that made the motor industry. From tales of Malcolm Sayer to Bedelia, and of BMW, Jaguar, Bugatti and Porsche, to tales of old Saabs and rusty Citroens, classic car life is here. Erik Carlsson, Jacques Gerin, Giovanni Michelotti and Innes Ireland are just a few of the names that can be found in these pages. From design to driving, here is a book that is a classic car adventure.

Exotics such as Bugatti, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Ferrari and Maserati mix it with Fords, Austins, MGs and many more in a roller-coaster of blow-ups, crashes, fixes, bodges, bleeding knuckles and speeding tickets! This is a collection of often hilarious true stories from the 1920s to the present day, written by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts. Funny, informative, thrilling, inspiring and heart-warming. You can almost smell the 5-star fuel and the hot Castrol R! During the past few decades the values of classic cars have skyrocketed. Many popular models are now priced well beyond the reach of most regular enthusiasts, unless they were fortunate enough to own - or have access to - classic cars when they were little more than cheap transport for youngsters and eccentrics! This book brings together tales, not of investors and playboys, but of ordinary 'car people'. Call them what you will: Petrolheads, car guys (and gals), Gearheads... we all know what we are and we can recognise a fellow 'sufferer' in seconds. There are stories here of help from mums and dads, of winds fixed with filler, and engines botched together just well enough to survive another week's motoring. There are stories of intrepid foreign adventures, of racing, sprinting, rallying, and just plain getting down and oily with the machines we love. So fold down that main screen, adjust the little 'Aeros', stick on your goggles and join us for a high-octane ride from the past to the present! Richard McCann has spent a lifetime collecting, restoring and racing many exciting vintage and classic sports cars and racing cars. In this book he brings together a collection of stories from the 1920s to the present day, involving the exploits of enthusiasts from all walks of life - but all 'car crazy' and each with a great tale to tell!
