About This Book

Brian Cunningham’s first book, Under the Bonnet, was a colourful and humorous collection of memories of his time as a car mechanic in the 1970s and 80s. When he wrote it, he was sure he had put everything of interest down, but the many letters he received from appreciative readers reminded him of plenty more escapades. When the Wheels Come Off is a joyous revisiting, covering what he missed first time round: cars fixed and some broken, fads and crazes, crashes and scrapes and near misses, evolutionary dead-ends in technology, underhanded practices and downright skulduggery, run-ins with management, the tools used, the cars ‘stolen’, and scrapyards visited. There is much to enjoy in this second trip back to the workshop.
