Stimulating, informative, provocative, and witty, Drive On! charts the international history of the car, decade by decade, examining how cars have adapted as a result of what society has demanded of them. While some chapters are devoted to quirky topics like Where to Stop and What to Wear, others look at the technological changes of the last century, from wooden wheels to computer control. Along the way, L.J.K. Setright, who is considered one of the worlds foremost and most forthright writers on the subject, offers fascinating divagations on everything from the origins of the word dashboard to the maximum speed of a raindrop.
