Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 178455037X, Paperback)

Motoring in the Last 100 Years, The Wolverhampton Way is a highly detailed account of the development of engines and cars in the period and the people who were instrumental in shaping the future of motoring from its early roots. There is a wealth of technical detail augmented by drawings and photographs which help to build up a picture of how engines, motor cars and motoring developed. The author has based his account upon his own personal experiences in the immediate area in which he grew up, which was at the heart of the manufacturing industry, and the experiences of family and friends involved in the motoring industry or who had extensive use of its products. The history of famous, but now almost forgotten names of manufactures such as Sunbeam, Guy and Villiers is recorded. The author also covers development and use of engines in a range of applications covering boats, tractors, commercial vehicles and early aeroplanes.
