Author: T. C. Bridges, H. Hessell-Tiltman

This classic guide to motoring still has the power to capture the imagination of motorists everywhere. Reproduced with original photographs, it is both a nostalgic snapshot of a vanished world and a joyful celebration of our motoring heritage.

'This is the thrilling tale of the trials of the motor-car pioneers; of the men who made the dream of ‘motoring for the million’ come true; of racing motorists and record-breaking; of amazing accidents and escapes; of the tanks during the War; of the spread of motor crime and Scotland Yard’s answer; of bootlegging and smuggling by car; of exploring by car; of great car journeys round the world and across Africa; of dirt-track racing; of a day in the Morris motor works; of road tests; of the romance of petrol; and of the work of the Automobile Association. The final chapter foretells developments of the near future.'
