Car-tastrophes : 80 Automotive Atrocities from the Past 20 Years (Hardcover) (George Fowler)
about this item
Having spent the last 20-odd years driving different cars on a weekly basis, often twice a week, George Fowler is more qualified than most to hold an opinion that counts. A reader of his Motormouth column once asked him what he thought about a car he'd praised, and added: "I know you get paid by the manufacturers to say nice things, so I just wondered what you really thought." That week, a furious Fowler absolutely slaughtered the then new Nissan Primera, and added at the end of his column: "How much do you think Nissan paid me for that, Mr Smith of Preston?" He didn't get a reply. If your car is, or was, remotely good then you won't find it in this book. On the other hand, if it's here, don't expect any sympathy.
