In John Wright's life, cars take a close second place to family, simple as that. My Other Wife is a Car is his memoir of 30 years of automotive obsession - one man's life seen as a life-long test drive. ..A full-time freelance writer for Wheels, Modern Motor, Best Car magazine and many others, he's driven more than 3000 cars and owned more than 130 (at the last count), some of which involved him buying cars he simply intended to test. His shortest ownership was less than twenty four hours. One disaster was an old Rolls Royce, another failure a Triumph. He narrowly averted ownership of a Leyland P76. Twice. He's sold cars for a crooked dealer, raced at Bathurst and Targa Tasmania (four times). He's met Peter Brock, Evan Green, Captain Peter Janson and Gentleman Jim Richards, among other motoring celebrities. ..Strap yourself in for a light-hearted and passionate celebration of 30 years of driving - the best and worst cars, the biggest lies, the most glorious failures, the cars that got away, and what it feels like to go full throttle for the first time through the kink into Caltex Chase. My Other Wife is a Car is about the passion of life in the fast lane.
