More About This Title My Other Wife Is a Car


In John Wright's life, cars come first, simple as that. This touching and humorous account of his passion for the open road and the beasts that thrive on it is one man's life seen as a life-long test drive. A full-time freelance writer for Wheels, Modern Motor, Best Car magazine and many others, John’s driven more than 3,000 cars in his day and owned more than 130—his shortest ownership being less than 24 hours. He’s had disasters that included a mishap with an old Rolls Royce, sold cars for a crooked dealer, and raced at Bathurst and Targa Tasmania. Now, strap in and get ready to experience the best and worst cars, the biggest lies, the most glorious failures, the cars that got away, and what it feels like to go full throttle for the first time through the kink into Caltex Chase. My Other Wife is a Car is all about the passion of living life in the fast lane.


John Wright is an automotive journalist Motor Magazine, and the author of Heart of the Lion and Special: The Untold Story of Australia's Holden.
