    Steve reviews Roadside Relics American's abandoned automobiles 

    With over 250 large colour pictures Roadside Relics America's abandoned automobiles highlights some of America's lost or forgotten vehicles in breath taking locations, which the author has found on his many travels around the United States. 

    The book has 208 pages which the author has used to cover most American vehicle manufacturers from AMC through to Willy's, and gives an insight into the manufacturer or vehicle model in question.

    About the author:

    Will Shiers is a motoring journalist who has written regular features for Classic American magazine and is currently the editor for Commercial Motor magazine. He has travelled the United States for over a decade collecting pictures for this book and the results speak for themselves. 

    The Motorists Guide view: 

    Needless to say I couldn't put the book down and thoroughly enjoyed reading every page. So whether you love classic cars, American cars or abandoned cars or locations then this is a must have for you.

    • Used Car Review: Honda CR-V (3rd Generation)
      Vehicle purchases over time have mainly been based on what is around at the time that falls into a budget.
      However, occasionally there is a checklist of 'must haves' to comply with, in order to make a well researched and sensible purchase

    • Winter Motoring - is your car ready for the freeze?
      It’s not as though our Winters are getting colder or that we are experiencing longer spells of the Winter freeze, but when it does go below zero then we can reasonably expect to encounter a range of problems that may not have been there beforehand.

      Below is a list of items worth getting checked before the Winter freeze catches you out

    • Mercedes W212 E Class saloon facelift
      The Mercedes W212 E Class was originally launched in 2009 to replace the well-built W211 version, which itself had helped recover Mercedes reputation at building reliable, long lasting cars after the quality control issues of the late 1990s/early 2000s. There was no doubt that both the car and Mercedes engineers had big shoes to fill but thankfully the gamble paid off as the new model was able to build on the good reputation of its forbearer. The W212 was not only bigger than the previous model it was also more refined.

    • Road trip through Nevada & Arizona
      Las Vegas – a city synonymous for gambling, partying and generally a play ground for the rich and famous. However, what if you want a change from the hustle and bustle of the city and see more of what the silver state has to offer? The answer is to hire a car and I have devised a perfect road trip which allows you enjoy some of the amazing scenery, ghost towns, mining towns and route 66 which all helped make the states of Nevada and Arizona both famous and rich. Below is a picture of the planned route.
