Motoring Backfires, Burnouts, Rattletraps and RaritiesBook - 2014
A fantastically funny collection of motoring trivia, tales and quizzes, from the bestselling author of Total Lemons and Total Wheelspin.. Total Leadfoot is the book version of hanging out with your mates - having a laugh, shooting the breeze, and pondering life's big questions. Dyou know your Lada from your Frisky? Are cup holders the most moronic things or an essential part of the driving experience? What are the real causes of road rage (bad coffee anyone?). Why isn't there a car called Pronghorn? Amaze your friends (or indeed random strangers, if your friends won't listen) with your knowledge of rattletraps and rakish beauties, bizarre car facts, strange stories behind even stranger films, and the scientific study of exhaust noise arousal. Total Leadfoot completes the 'total' trilogy in exactly the right way: by adding a third book. So belt up, adjust your mirrors, your ride starts now!
