From the cover: “Cyril Connolly once told Ian Fleming that if men were honest their motor cars came next after their women and children in their list of loves. If that be so, then most men (and their wives, too) should enjoy this book. It is only something over seventy years since the first motor car was imported into England, yet in that time it has inspired writers of every sort and stature to record the romance and enthusiasm which the ‘horseless carriage’ has undeniably called into being.
