With more than 30 years of experience as a motoring journalist, author Dave Morley has come across his fair share of epic car stuff-ups.

Great Aussie Car Fails explores the biggest stuff-ups in motoring history, from the supercar with an engine prone to exploding, to Peter Brock's Energy Polariser, the equivalent of healing crystals for your car.

The book includes chapters on the biggest car model mistakes; technology gone wrong; questionable company politics and some overseas whoppers that will make us feel... a little less alone in the stupid stakes.

For car lovers, car haters and anyone who wants to feel a bit better about their own mistakes, this book will keep you entertained and give you a bit of insight into the wild world of cars.

Dave Morley

Dave Morley is a motoring journalist who has road tested every Holden and Ford (and pretty much anything else on the road) built in Australia since 1986. His passion for the subject matter has also seen him track down the Falcons and Kingswoods he was too young to drive professionally, and give them a walloping as well.

Dave has owned a variety of both Ford and Holden cars over the years and remains a front-bar leper by refusing to nominate one brand over the other, believing them both to be capable of stupidity, short-sightedness, ignorance and world’s-worst-practice.

But when they get it right, both Holden and Ford have produced some truly inspiring cars. And Dave has the speeding tickets to prove it.
