    I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I truly enjoyed this

    I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I truly enjoyed this book.  I love cars, and I decided that I should read this book, which found its way into my collection.  Simply put, this book is snippets -- it's a very fast read.  The author has interviewed many celebrities, from all walks of celebrity, regarding their first car, and the memories and feelings retained from that first vehicle.  It's quite fun to read about and to see what people used to be driving around in past years.  Very entertaining!
