This is a book about the unusual and yet humorous experiences that two friends separately experienced during their combined 65 years of driving and owning cars. The book begins with Ed's experiences. While the quantity of cars that he owned is less than Fred's, it doesn't lack the uniqueness and wit of Fred's. Two samples of note: While driving to a boy scout camp in northwest New Jersey, Ed completely lost his brakes while in the process of making a left turn. Out of complete desperation and fear, he pulled up on his emergency brake so hard, his car spun in circle several times before landing in a ditch. Funny at the time? Hardly, but the stories' humor will speak for themselves. Fred has had his share of strange experiences with cars. The body of one of his vehicles was literally not attached to the car's frame. Unheard of! Read how Fred dealt with that any several other problems that he experienced just with that one vehicle alone. For anyone interested in cars, or anyone who as owned or driven cars, you will not be disappointed with this book.show more
