Gathered from live conversation and printed sources, this book presents the lively language of car and motorcycle fans, with entries also from car parts men, mechanics, car salesmen and ordinary drivers. Drawn from California, Canada, Texas, Boston, England, Belize, and other places it evokes the terror, the joy, the pride, the troubles that come from these Rube Goldbergish unholy alliances of fire and water, gasoline, steel, and rubber, designed to drag our bodies down the highway at unlawful speeds and get us caught in horrendous traffic jams, or travel freely in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
