In 1964 Brian Bold hitchhikes from London to Geneva to find his fourth girlfriend and so begins a journey of over forty years. Driving more than twenty cars, nearly every one he's owned, he travels along the minor roads of personal fortune and the motorways of social and technological change. Travelling but never quite arriving, he breaks down on the way to the Beatles' Cavern Club in Liverpool on the night of Kennedy's assassination, races an Austin Maestro at the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit, has a secret meeting with John Major the Prime Minister, and dresses up in another man's clothes. Often hilarious, sometimes poignant, always engaging, these stories of a family, told through the car journeys they make, will probably provide echoes to your own driving history. Read this as a love story, a travelogue, a memoir,as well as perhaps the longest road story ever told.

Review:

I enjoyed this book. I was totally absorbed and could not put it down. The story is both a travelogue and a love story. The love of cars, especially the early ones in ones' life and similarly, the love of a wife and partner who shares the dreams, the cars, the problems and the journeys. There is much humour and I found myself laughing aloud in several sections. The book is full of nostalgia. It brings back the memories of those cars that we had in our youth and the relationships we formed with them and the people that were knew or met in those times and the journeys we made with them. -- Roy Bunyan on Lulu Website
