This collection presents the pictures and known details of many unidentified cars sent to Honest John, The Daily Telegraph's motoring agony uncle, by readers of his column. With the help of a variety of experts, Honest John rescues from anonymity as many as he can, and tells their stories - they range from the humble and unassuming to quite extraordinary and ingenious creations. The book offers an overview of the history of motoring, from the earliest days, when a vehicle had to be preceded on foot by somebody displaying a red flag - which was the very first car to have been built in Britain - right up to the present day. Over the years Honest John has helped to identify cars ranging from a 1913 Astro-Damler updated to appear post-war, a 1903 Vauxhall - one of only 40 manufactured - a honeymoon vehicle in Indonesia in 1928 and the first British car to win the Monte Carlo Rally.
