A Fine Day for a Drive by Rick Cogbill

Based on the popular automotive humour column The Car Side, the book A FINE DAY FOR A DRIVE takes us back to the early years of Slim Shambles’ career, to the time when he first opened his shop and hired his infamous staff.

While the monthly column was focused on actual technical problems and solutions,  A Fine Day for a Drive goes behind the scenes and brings out the long-awaited stories of Slim Shambles, his wife Cookie, his friend Buck Pincher, and the hilarious antics that go on in the town of Slumberland. It’s fun-time reading for the whole family.

You’ll meet Mayor Dewgood, Baldy the Barber, and even Slim’s dog, Buddy. You’ll visit Rolph’s Diner, climb Hunchback Mountain, and swim a lap or two in the pool over at The Happy Peasant Motel, “…a fine establishment where weary travelers can stop for the night and find fresh incentive for moving on the next morning.”

Whether it’s riding along on Slim’s first date with Cookie McDream or wearing protective headgear as you sit through a local Council meeting, there’s a whole book full of adventures awaiting you between the covers of A Fine Day for a Drive.

Here are some sample chapter titles to look forward to:

  • Don’t Bank On It ~ A Slim View On Gardening ~ A Fine Day For A Drive
  • Stairway To Heaven ~ Development Daze ~ Cookie’s Valentine ~ All Makes And Models
  • The British Are Coming ~ Meet The Parents ~ Name That Toon ~ A Romantic Evening For Five
  • In Pursuit Of Culture ~ Danger: Curves Ahead ~ The Chicken Safari ~ Bean Counting ~ Sneaky Waters Run Deep…and many, many more!
