    I can recommend the following pair of hardback compilations;

    You can get both for less than £15 on Amazon.

    Read about the decades when Mercedes were truly great!

    I always thought the 512 BBi was a beautiful & underrated car.

    I still remember the issue of Car with 3 gold Lambos in convoy. Fantastic stuff. It was the best car magazine in the world.

    A couple of years after the Convoy! article I was given a howling, snarling, sideways, sphincter clenching, white knuckle ride at going to jail speeds in one of the 50 Silhouettes made along Santa Monica & Wilshire Blvds in the early hours of an L.A. Sunday morning. Amazing the cops didn't get us as you could hear the Lambo's exhaust reverb up the concrete canyons of Wilshire Blvd for a long, long way.

    Car did lose its way some years back, but I sometimes think it is making a recovery.

    If they are full of the late Mr. Setright's scribblings , they'll be worth every penny !

    Still the best car mag; although that a bit like saying that swan feathers make the best quill pens...
