Cars and Capers takes a nostalgic look back at one man's life told with reference to the cars he has owned and the adventures he has had in them, We all remember learning to drive and the thrill of passing the driving test and purchasing our first car. In his book William Downs takes us through the cars he has owned over the years from his first purchase, an Austin 8 which cost him the princely sum of AGBP1, to his most recent vehicle, a Fiat Panda. Downs takes us back to days gone by when the roads were not so busy and motoring was still a joy and tells of some of the colourful characters who have joined him for the ride. Downs' memoirs are frank and funny and Cars and Capers is a 'warts and all' account of his life. The author recounts some difficult days alongside fond memories of his cars and the journeys he has had in them. If you are interested in cars, and intrigued by the lives of others, you will enjoy this book.
