Publisher Description

With more than 30 years of experience as a motoring journalist, author Dave Morley has come across his fair share of epic car stuff-ups. Great Aussie Car Fails explores the biggest stuff-ups in motoring history, from the supercar with an engine prone to exploding, to Peter Brock's Energy Polariser, the equivalent of healing crystals for your car. The book includes chapters on the biggest car model mistakes; technology gone wrong; questionable company politics and some overseas whoppers that will make us feel... a little less alone in the stupid stakes. For car lovers, car haters and anyone who wants to feel a bit better about their own mistakes, this book will keep you entertained and give you a bit of insight into the wild world of cars.

Author Biography

The car is a complex machine. The business of making cars is a complex industry. Enter a simple man. Dave Morley has been an automotive journalist for the last three decades and more, and has witnessed first hand his fair share of mistakes, errors, stuff-ups and bald-faced lies from a car-making world where too often politics, expediency, cost-cutting, and snake-oil salesmen get in the way of good design, best-practice and engineering practicalities. How else could you explain a manufacturer cheating on a fuel consumption test, a car that knee-capped its occupants or an exhaust design so loopy, it set the car's carpets on fire? A twisted view of the world isn't usually a blessing, but when it comes to stripping away the weasel words and recognising stupid for what it is, such a warped approach has served Morley well. He is the perfect candidate to lift the bonnet on the greatest Aussie car stuff-ups of all time.
