100 Dream Cars

The Best of My Ride by Bairne, A.J Code: 57490 Format: Hardback / 224 pages Publication date: 09/10/2019 Availability: Available. Usually dispatched 1-3 business days Price: AU $65.00

New York Times best-selling author and popular Wall Street Journal "My Ride" columnist A.J. Baime selects the one hundred cars, motorcycles, and other vehicles to fill the dream garage. Stunning photography and Baimes engaging essays celebrate everything drivers love about their cars - from technical specifications to satisfy gearheads to intangibles like a drivers relationship with his or her car - making it truly "my ride." You want fast? Step on the gas in a Koenigsegg CCX, 87 Lamborghini, or 1970 Pontiac GTO. You want classic? Here are the keys to a 62 Corvette, 57 Thunderbird, or 1930 BMW - the oldest Bimmer in the United States. You want cool? Take a 64 Shelby Cobra, Tesla Model X, or Aston Martin Vulcan for a spin. You want one-of-a-kind? How about a 52 Seagrave fire truck, 73 VW Thing, or the Batmobile? You also get to meet the owners. Theres the story of a pizza-delivery man who dodges polar bears in his Hyundai in Barrow, Alaska; an NBA star who endures Los Angeles traffic by having his Tesla drive for him; and a retired Kentucky entrepreneur with a 22-foot-long 1937 Cadillac, which he calls "the biggest, baddest car that could exist."
