Stimulating, informative, provocative, and witty, "Drive On!" charts the international history of the car, decade by decade, examining how cars have adapted as a result of what society has demanded of them. While some chapters are devoted to quirky topics like "Where to Stop" and "What to Wear," others look at the technological changes of the last century, from wooden wheels to computer control.
