You Must Be Skidding! The Biggest Losers Of The Car World




Cars, cars and more cars!

Cars, cars and more cars!

Who thought it was a good idea to call a car Gremlin, or Cedric or Touring Bruce? Which will fly first: the Moller Skycar or the pig? Hear about the floating car that sank? Hear about the show car so ugly the company had to promise they'd never build another that looked anything like it? And then there was the fridge company that decided to make a car…

Whether it's a car with two, three or six wheels, has a motor scooter engine or a nuclear reactor, the most stupid name or the most dodgy design, You Must Be Skidding will tell you all you need to know about the losers of the car world.

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'.

Praise for You Must Be Skidding! The Biggest Losers Of The Car World

“This book is an awesome guide for car fanatics and non-car-fanatics alike. It’s jam-packed with the wackiest, ugliest and most horrible “lemons” (a.k.a horror cars) that have ever hit the streets...hilarious!”

DMag

“A great little book for a snicker, chortle or giggle.”

Newcastle Herald

“Perfectly pitched at boys of middle school age, this is a hoot of a book.”

Magpies

“A child friendly look at some of the worst cars that ever spluttered off the production line…highly recommended.”
