The trains, ships, cars, planes, motorbikes and trucks that we used to get places and make us more efficient were so relied upon that they have become part of our DNA.In this lively, well researched and affectionate survey of 100 vehicles of all descriptions, historian Matthew Wright takes us on a trip down memory lane, reacquainting us with the way we used to get around. The book features both New Zealand innovations and inventions and significant international brands, events and developments that affected the country.
