I love this book.
This is a compilation of the trials and tribulations of a restoration mechanic/shop owner. Within these pages, you will find fun stories about broken things and how they might be repaired on the side of the road. You’ll also find the sense of humor most Bugeye owners enjoy, from a wise author with a great perspective about how cars, conveyance and our culture have changed through the years.
The title is rooted in a conversation the author had with a customer who limped into his shop, with a clattering sleek and new Range Rover. When he asked when the oil was last checked or changed, the owner said, “It came with oil, didn’t it?”
This is a book for anyone who grew up when cars were user-serviced and occasionally uncomfortable (although he also writes about his Hudson with seats that folded into beds).
