Strip Roads and Sports Cars

Rod Wells

To many, the three decades recounted in Strip Roads and Sports Cars can be described as the Golden Era of motoring life in Southern Africa. Relating personal memories, the journey weaves its way through the recollections of a motoring enthusiast who first discovered the fascination of the motor car as a child.

There are tales of under-age driving; discovering old, but fascinating cars; escapades in his first sports car; modifying a Cooper S and MGs for competition; and completely restoring a rare ex-works Austin Healey 100S. There are many other fascinating recollections of a motoring life in Africa, but in the background there is a continual warning of impending political change.
