Stories of devotion and obsession.
Australians love their cars and some love theirs to the point of obsession.
The 24 owners who share their stories in this book are drawn to the point of desire for any number of reasons. It may provide a link to some long-ago event, represent a passion sparked in childhood by a toy-car collection, or embody a life story. Whatever the motivation, all these owners share an appreciation for workmanship and a pride in their car's form, performance and history, whether it is a daily runabout or a fully restored concourse beauty.
Men, women, young, old: no one is immune to the siren-call of a beautifully designed and engineered car. In 'My Car', we are introduced to a remarkable parade of classic and vintage cars: the stories their owners have to tell range from the quest to find the perfect make and model to loving restorations and, above all, the place their car holds in their life.
Complete with stunning colour photographs, 'My Car' is the perfect book for any car lover - or anyone who knows one.
