This poor book should be called- 'Cars I don't Like' because it lacks objectivity. This author could benefit from better research of the hard facts that even an ammature car enthusiast would know. I know a great deal about at least one of the cars featured. I was amused 'at first' to find it in this book until I found some of the following unfair abuses of truth: Fact the Plymouth Cricket was not 'based on the Hillman Avenger' it WAS the Hillman Avenger, imported, only Left Hand Drive with slight alterations- like parking lights. Fact The Plymouth Cricket had a 1500 cc Engine- not a 1295 engine of 1.6 Liter Fact The Cricket and Avenger had the SAME exact bumpers, only the cricket had bumper guards on the deluxe models. Fact the Cricket had a dual carb option in its second year of production same as the avenger, only with an emissions control unit which ran fine. Fact the Cricket's ears of production 1971-1973 not 1973-1980 Fact The Crickets top speed 98 mph not 85mph with the bigger engine size offered in the U.S. the car was nippier than the english car. Mr. Chapman please Please do proper research and fact checking, it would make for a far better book! Truth is far more interesting but to some entertainment and fiction are more marketable.
