This marvellous book, now updated as a second edition in a new paperback format, is a celebration of eccentric cars in all shapes and sizes - some of the most ugly, crazily designed and downright awkward vehicles of all time. Where else would you find, in one book, descriptions and photographs of automotive oddities as diverse as the Gaylord Gentleman, Suminoe Flying Feather or Zil?
