"You can see a board-walk in lots of places. But if you wanted to see a car dance, you had to go to California." With this, Sobol continues his popular series with a breezy, anecdotal look at some nuttier moments in the history of the automobileâ€”every story solemnly attested to be true. Most of this seems to have been collected from police officers and race-car drivers, but casual readers will also find a list of unusual model names, a note on the origin of the word "taxicab," a disquisition on William Eno, the "Father of traffic safety," and much else. A browsing item, virtually interchangeable with the other "wacky" books.
