Car Crazy: The Official Motor City High-octane, Turbocharged, Chrome-plated, Back Road Book of Car Culture
Visible Ink Press, 1996 - Technology & Engineering - 392 pages
"In an attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole." "I had been driving for 40 years when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident." "I collided with a stationary truck coming the other way."
Lines from a stand-up comic? No, these are actual excuses for auto accidents, taken from insurance company records, and just a tiny sample of what makes Car Crazy like no other car book you've seen.
Cruising from seriously significant to silly (but absolutely fascinating) in 4.8 seconds flat, Car Crazy covers all things automotive - from profiles of industry giants and the history of key automobiles, to rearview mirror adornments and unusual drive-through businesses. Ant you'll find one of the biggest honkin' collections of car-related movies ever assembled anywhere.
