    Description

    What are the not-so-cool cars, the cars you shouldn't opt to buy—and those you shouldn't even be seen in or alongside? No, not the Skoda or station wagon, which have a heroic anti-car coolness of their own, but the Golf or Astra or professional footballer's Ferrari. This is a book that celebrates
    What are the not-so-cool cars, the cars you shouldn't opt to buy—and those you shouldn't even be seen in or alongside? No, not the Skoda or station wagon, which have a heroic anti-car coolness of their own, but the Golf or Astra or professional footballer's Ferrari. This is a book that celebrates Jarvis Cocker's decision to drive a station wagon and Roger Moore a Renault 5. It questions what happens to the status of your car after you have seen Bernard Manning or Jade Goodie posing next to a model of it in the newspaper. Additionally, there is a "Showroom Questionnaire" for car manufacturers to ask their customers before they sell them a car that might become irrevocably uncool as a result.

    Broadcaster and writer Richard Hammond co-presents BBC television's Top Gear with Jeremy Clarkson.
