A new, comprehensive guide to motoring and transport museums offering a fresh conversation on their role and the portrayal of our motoring history.

Written by a long-established motoring writer with wide experience of driving and the fettling of old cars all over the world.

This new motor museum companion includes: British motoring and transport museums guide via descriptions and photographs. 90 British museums described.

Comprehensive world motor museum listing: over 350 global museums cited. Out-takes from visits to selected overseas museums. Provides a glossary of old-car/motorcycle terms and types to assist the museum visitor and old car enthusiast. Discusses the museum culture and its new age.

Visits to many museums by the author were self-funded: he paid his own way.

Review by Roger Backhouse

Written by a true enthusiast for enthusiasts... Although I am no car fan I enjoyed this book. To be recommended.

Society of Model and Experimental Engineers

Lance Cole is a leading motoring and aviation writer, of which this book is a fine example of his work. The book contains firstly, advice on visiting museums and then goes onto list the many places up and down the UK to visit as a whole. Each museum is listed with address, telephone and a brief description of what to expect. Also included in the book are breakdowns of types of vehicle along with photographs both in colour and black and white, a thoroughly good guide and well worth the money in my opinion!

The International Plastic Modellers’ Society, Keighley

An excellent guide to some 90 British museums and a further 390 worldwide, with descriptions and photographs, including a glossary of old car / motorcycle terms.

West Somerset Railway Association

Ideally this work is aimed at those new to automative history.
