This book is a tribute to classic cars and the devoted, determined, skilful, innovative and hilarious people who own, love and maintain them. Love an E-Type Jag, Mustang, Ferrari or Rolls-Royce? What about a Lamborghini, Austin-Healy, Aston Martin, Mercedes-Benz, even a Mini Cooper? Idle Torque is for the avid collector, the unapologetic revhead, vintage Sunday driver or weekend restorer, for those who can appreciate the iconic design and engineering of cars from the golden ages of motoring. This is a collection of the most memorable stories told in the long-running column Idle Torque that appeared every week in The West Australian newspaper.
