Cars I’ve Loved and Hated (CD)
An Unauthorized Auto Biography. This is the “book” version of the 15-chapter blog that Michael Lamm wrote for Hemmings Online in 2012. Instead of an actual book, though, Mike decided to “publish” his Hemmings blog in the form of a CD. The “pages” of the CD are laid out in book form, and it’s easy to leaf through them or print them out. The “book” consists of 223 pages and includes 131 photographs. The layouts were done by Casey Shain, the distinguished Connecticut book artist and auto enthusiast. In his Hemmings blog, Mike talked about some of the 80-odd collectible cars he’s owned over the past 62 years, most of which he loved but a couple he didn’t. It began in 1950, when Mike turned 14. He got his first car that year, a 1931 Hudson Greater Eight sedan. After that he began buying and selling whatever came his way—feral cars, he calls them. He acquired, among others, a 1932 Cadillac V-16, a hot rod, plus a number of unusual and interesting makes and models. He came out on some; on most he didn’t. His automotive adventures and philosophy make for interesting reading.
