Grease Junkie: A Book of Moving Parts (Hardcover)
As you'll discover in his incomparable memoir, the inventor, mechanic, TV presenter, and definition of the British eccentric Edd China sees things differently. An unstoppable enthusiast from an early age, Edd had thirty-five ongoing car projects while he was at university, not counting the double-decker bus he was living in. Now he's a man with not only a runaround sofa, but also a road-legal office, shed, bed, and bathroom. His first car was a more conventional 1303 Texas yellow Beetle, the start of an ongoing love affair with VW, even though it got him arrested for attempted armed robbery. A human volcano of ideas and the ingenuity to make them happen, Edd is exhilarating company. Join him on his wild, wheeled adventures; see inside his engineering heroics; go behind the scenes on Wheeler Dealers. Climb aboard his giant motorized shopping cart, and let him take you into his parallel universe of possibility.
Edd China is a television presenter, mechanic, motor specialist, and inventor. He co-presented the show Wheeler Dealers for thirteen years and has also appeared on Top Gear, Scrapheap Challenge, and Fifth Gear. As an inventor, Edd set or holds Guinness World Records for the fastest furniture, shed, bathroom, bed, and milk float, and largest motorized shopping trolley, fastest electric amphibian, and fastest electric ice cream van.
