Description

This is a fascinating and amusing A to Z of some of the myriad accessories, go-faster gadgets and novelty trinkets that have been available to motorists over the years. From modern essentials such as airbags and impact-absorbing bumpers, through boy-racer must-haves like exhaust flame-throwers and fly-off handbrakes, to the pure kitsch of nodding dogs and fluffy dice, the motoring world's most vital accessories are gathered here in one handy volume. Readers will marvel at the ingenuity of the Bumper Dumper, wonder how they ever managed without an elevating hunting seat, or hang their heads in shame because they too owned a Capri with a matt black bonnet...
