This Day In Au­to­mo­tive His­tory

Classic Sports Car - - Books -

Trivia fans will en­joy leaf­ing this 196-page pa­per­back, which of­fers a mo­tor­ing fact (or sev­eral) for each day of the year. The fo­cus is bi­ased to­wards the US, but you have to ad­mire the au­thor’s de­ter­mi­na­tion to find at least one snip­pet per day – even 29 Fe­bru­ary (racer Mas­ten Gre­gory was born in a leap year). The im­ages are lack­lus­tre, and you may not care when the first Malaysian car landed (the for­get­table Pro­ton Saga, on 9 July 1985), but there are some in­ter­est­ing anec­dotes in here.
