Overview
"Driving Like Crazy" celebrates cars and author P. J. O Rourke s love for them, while chronicling the golden age of the automobile in America. O Rourke takes us on a whirlwind tour of the world s most scenic and bumpiest roads in trouble-laden cross-country treks, from a 1978 Florida-to-California escapade in a 1956 special four-door Buick sedan to a 1983 thousand-mile effort across Mexico in the Baja 1000 to a trek through Kyrgyzstan in 2006 on the back of a Soviet army surplus six-wheel-drive truck. For longtime fans of the celebrated humorist, the collection features a host of O Rourke s classic pieces on driving, including How to Drive Fast on Drugs While Getting Your Wing-Wang Squeezed and Not Spill Your Drink, about the potential misdeeds one might perform in the front (and back) seat of an automobile; The Rolling Organ Donors Motorcycle Club, which chronicles a seven-hundred-mile weekend trip through Michigan and Indiana that O Rourke took on a Harley Davidson alongside Car & Driver publisher David E. Davis, Jr.; his brilliant and funny piece from Rolling Stone on NASCAR and its peculiar culture, recorded during an alcohol-fueled weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1977; and an hilarious account of a trek from Islamabad to Calcutta in Land Rover s new Discovery Trek."
