9780297844457: Richard Hammond's Car Confidential: The Odd, the Mad, the Bad and the Curious

Loaded with information and wit, this hilarious overview is a must-have for anyone even remotely interested in cars. Its topics include car and traffic etiquette, how to buy a car, how to avoid giving murderers a lift, the seven ages of the motorist from learning how to drive at 18 to driving the wrong way down highways at 80, a spotter's guide to motorists in the style of a World War II manual, customizing, the alternative guide to road rage, and even organizing that last journey—cool hearses to be buried in. Several top 10's are also listed, including the top 10 noble failures, remembering Chrysler's car for women, the "Femme," which came in one color—shocking pink—and a matching shocking pink handbag and lipstick. Lastly, a "What Not to Drive 2007" update covers all the new cars in a cut-out-and-keep guide—everything a driver needs to know. The odd, the mad, the bad, the curious, and the ridiculous are all here in this wonderful, witty, and incredibly useful compendium of all we ever needed to know about the modern world of driving.
