A funny and fascinating journey through more than 200 years of motoring, highlighting the oddest, craziest, and most interesting cars ever built.

The fastest, the sleekest, the most famous and the strangest! This fascinating high-speed look at more than 200 years of motoring will have you marvelling - and sometimes laughing out loud - at cars that float and fly and walk, cars made from plastic and even bamboo and cars that are knee-high or as long as a bus. You too will be asking Are You For Wheel?

What famous Australian family car was nearly named the Koala?

How did the Dynasphere, a car with just one wheel, stay upright?

Heard about the trend-setting hybrid built by a lawnmower company?

Did you know that the man who invented the car also invented the car crash?

What car was known as the duck, the tin snail and the upside-down pram, yet sold in the millions?

Heard about the car with a whopping 36 cylinders?

What about the one that was powered by a fan - and looked like a hair dryer?

About the Author

Tony Davis

Tony Davis, a senior writer and editor with the Sydney Morning Herald, has written about cars for nearly twenty years. He has driven some of the fastest, most expensive, and most impressive vehicles ever built, yet retains a bizarre fascination with cars at the other end of the spectrum, those built by engineers who, as he puts it, 'think a tour de force is a bicycle race'.
