Reviewing the fastest, sleekest, most famous, and strangest, this is a fascinating, high-speed look at more than 200 years of motoring. From cars that float, fly, and walk to those made from plastic and even bamboo, this outlandish overview also captures some that are knee-high and others that are as long as a bus. Entertaining stories are explored, such as the famous Australian family car that was nearly named the Koala and the Dynasphere—the car with just one wheel—and its secret of staying upright. From the trendsetting hybrid built by a lawnmower company to cars that were powered by fans and looked like hair dryers, this humorous handbook is an uncommon depiction of the world of automobiles.
