5.0 out of 5 stars Des Lynam in a Honda Civic, 1 Aug 2006
This review is from: What Not to Drive (Hardcover)
This is a great book from Richie Hammond, the little guy from the Top Gear car programme. Most people will be familiar with his big mucker Jeremy Clarkston, the one who wants to kill foreigners, smoke where he wants and drop litter. Hammond is the more acceptable face of Top Gear and he's produced a nice book which takes a 'sideways look' at cars and the people who drive them. Apparently, BMW drivers are more likely to profane in front of their kids than Saab drivers. And Ford Mondeo drivers are 37% more constipated than the British average - though not as a result of the driving position! Hammond also has some fun with the types of cars that celebs drive. He himself has a Jaguar XK8, with customised raised seating; Ross Kemp has a Hummer, with a 'baby on board' sticker; and Stephen Fry drives a London taxi, though he won't stop if you try to flag him down. He also has a train for longer journeys. Clarkson (obviously!) has a great big tank.
