The Auto Biography, Hardback


British motoring, from golden age to gridlock. A history of Britain from the driving seat. The Auto Biography charts the story of British motoring from the viewpoint of the everyday motorist.

With chapters based around cars that have symbolised each motoring era, author Mark Wallington uses his own personal memories and the cars he owned to create a wonderfully nostalgic portrait of Britain on the road.

Growing up in the golden era of driving in the 1950s, and getting ready for his free bus pass in the environmental concerns of today, Mark's own life story echoes this fascinating historical journey.
