KIRKUS REVIEW

"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 automobile—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.
