vehicular crime, racing, moviemaking and various mishaps and
mayhem." - The New York Times
"Authors Matt Stone and Preston Lerner are seasoned automotive writers and the book reads with the insider intrigue of two scribes talking to friends over beers." - San Diego Union Tribune"... chock-full of amusing car-related trivia and miscellany - perfect for dipping onto on drowsy, cloudy winter afternoons." - Detroit News"The answers are here, one question and answer per chapter. Authors Stone and Lerner, both auto magazine writers, know how to weave a compelling tale. Each chapter's brief length and unconnected nature make this the perfect book to read, put down and come back to. It's a guilty pleasure; one that's hard to put down for good and is certainly my favorite book this year." - Boston Herald---
