Which British aristocrat left a Ford Corsair near the cliffs of Dover with a blood-stained lead pipe in the boot? Remember what Grace Kelly was driving when she went over the edge in Monaco? This fascinating collection brings together the best, and worst, of a century of automotive Babylon·the true stories of times when cars, celebrities, bad luck (or bad driving) literally collide. From Marc Bolan¦s encounter with a tree in Barnes in his Mini Cooper to Hitler¦s love of making decisions in his Mercedes, Stars, Cars and Infamy describes all the most celebrated events where cars have taken a starring role. These stories combine tragedy, comedy, and the just plain bizarre, but all make fascinating and entertaining reading.
