Overview

Dad may have always seemed a man of simple pleasures who only needed a cold drink, a new power drill, and a home cooked meal to be happy. But Dad had dreams too, and don't think he was entirely content with that wood-paneled Dodge Caravan or that Ford Pinto the driveway either. In quiet moments Dad was dreaming of Ferrari Daytonas, Lamborghini Miuras, and countless other gorgeous cars that in truth he could never afford. Packed with illustrations and witty insights, this entertaining compilation celebrates those motor vehicles of desire that gave Dad that faraway look in his eyes.
