Man and the Motor Car
Center for Safety Education
This book has just tickled me no end! I have had a ball looking at this very old driver’s education text. What a hoot! My car loving friends will certainly enjoy this nostalgic book. My secret submitter also took great care of this gem and it doesn’t look its age at all! What a find! Not surprisingly, a bunch of Michigan libraries and archives have this in the collection. (We are the home of the Auto! Go Detroit!) What I was wondering about were the dozens of public libraries and a few high school libraries that had this in a regular collection…hmmm?
My husband the auto engineer laughed at this old timey auto production picture:
Or how about this? The gang gets together to hear about cars! (My mom and dad were in high school when this book was published. Hey maybe they used this book for driver’s ed!):
Safety is important! Here is a handy guide for drunk driving! (Interesting safety note: no mention of seat belts ANYWHERE in the book!) Michigan’s legal limit is .08. Can’t imagine this being very helpful for current drinking and driving!
Planning a trip? Here is a futuristic map of the highway systems!
Drive carefully everyone!
