What were you doing in the early '90s? Eric Dymock was driving cars, lots of them. Eric Dymock on Cars is a four-volume anthology of test results, model-by-model comparisons and thoughts about the future of motoring that make for fascinating reading from 30 years down the road.



What were cars like 30 years ago? Eric Dymock selects from his 1989 writing about cars and motoring topics, with colour pictures throughout. Features and motoring columns are reproduced as they appeared during those 12 months. Some have unpublished parts restored. Comments from the hindsight of 30 years is added for context, or where first thoughts may have turned out less than perfect.
