Eric Dymock on Cars: 1989
Kindle™ eBook. Read on any device.
What were you doing in 1989? Eric Dymock was driving cars, lots of them. His road test results, model-by-model comparisons and thoughts about the future of motoring make for fascinating reading from 25 years down the road.
Much of it is quite surprising from today's perspective. There are still serious comparisons made between cars such as the 5 series BMW and a Citroen XM, Fiat Croma or a Ford Granada (something no-one would attempt now), there is lots of speculation on devices we got to know as sat nav in the meantime, on the possible future of Japanese luxury brands in Europe (they were still to come), etc.
The author tends to be quite balanced and neutral in his descriptions and definitely belongs to the old school of automotive journalism - focused on factual matters and not on entertainment value first and foremost. As such this is not a complement or replacement for Top Gear type material but rather an insight into the automotive scene, as it was a quarter of a century ago.
