Now, armed with period driving guides, Richard Wilson has packed his picnic, flask and himself into some very stylish vintage cars to retrace six classic routes through the UK and recreate the pleasure of the golden age of motoring.

Along the way he meets the people who live there and remember how these places once were, and wonders why things aren't what they used to be."--Global Books in Print."@en ;
