1.0 out of 5 stars Hardly worth the 50p I paid for it., 5 July 2011
This review is from: What Not to Drive (Hardcover)
I was at a car boot sale the other day, and spotted "What not to drive" in a pile of books. It was only 50p so bought it for a laugh. I should have kept my 50p as its about the biggest load of old drivel Ive ever read. This is like Top Gear on paper with Hammond spouting loads of jibberish on almoust every page. Clarkson and May are no better on the telly, so thought Hammond would have made a better job on paper. There were a few funny bits, though, the elderly men in a smelly tent with dicky bladders made me laugh, was one of the few [P88], but what really offended me was calling American muscle car owners truly stupid, and "Youd have to be nuts to get one". I know many smart interesting people who have worked hard and saved for there dream car, be it a Mustang, Charger, Challenger ect. and they would also be very offended by his stupid immature comments. Late 60s muscle cars are fantastic sexy head turners, much better than modern Mercs, BMWs, ect ect. I should know, as I am one of the lucky few to have my dream car, a 1966 Mustang Coupe V8, in mint condition, in Ford Focus Performance Blue with white Shelby stripes, and it runs and drives fantastic. It ia the best, sexiest, fasest car Ive ever had. It also stops as good as any modern car. Its better than sex. Hammond, you dont know what youre talking about. It is also stupid to say that 70s American cars rust like an Alka-Seltzer in the rain. Any classic car be it American, Alfa Romeo, Lada ect. will last for years if looked after properly. You could have been forgiven if you had written this book after your accident, as the bump on the head would have caused a few short circuts up there, but no forgiveness for before the accident. Car buffs out there, only buy this book if youre a complete Top Gear anaorak.
