A hilarious look at 111 automotive atrocities. Bad design, appalling execution, ridiculous pretensions, ludicrous names - it's all here in this motoring hall of shame. Most of them didn't even seem like such a good idea at the time ... Cars that doubled as boats, cars that used salvaged aeroplane motors, cars as long as limousines (but only good for transporting 2 people), cars that were too skinny or too wide, much too high or ridiculously heavy, cars which looked like they had been designed by Noddy with Big Ears lending a hand. there is one place they can be stars: total Lemons, a new omnibus which lovingly brings together the 111 worst cars ever built. Here you'll find the dumpy and astonishingly incompetent Austin Allegro ('A streetcar named Dire'), the frighteningly unstable Messerschmitt cabin-scooter (a 'Postwar crime') and the exploding Ford Pinto ('Passengers alight here'). You'll meet their colleagues, brothers and sisters in automobile atrocity, including certain Holdens, Falcons, Valiants, Leylands and Lightburns. Filled with high hopes, low commonsense and photos manufacturers wish had never been taken, total Lemons is a gift book - and a warning - for the revheads in your life. As author tony Davis notes, good cars come and go, but a total lemon is forever.
