In 'Auto Erotica,' flash back to a time when cars were "way, way, more sexy"

This week, Fuel Publishing releases Auto Erotica: A Grand Tour through Classic Car Brochures of the 1960s to 1980s, another vintage deep-dive assembled by nostalgia enthusiast Jonny Trunk. “This book looks back to a pre-digital period, when designers had pencils and fashioned car models out of clay,” Trunk writes. “It’s a time when car companies took risks and inventors could go a bit mad over a drawing in the sand. Engines failed all the time, you needed a jump-start when it got a bit cold and then you had to de-ice the locks and radiator too. There were no electric windows (well hardly), no sat navs, no central locking, no airbags, no power steering, no alarms, no parking cameras, no computer analysis, no dashboard screens, no intermittent wipers, no proper heating. You might have a cigarette lighter, a rev counter and a terrible radio if you were lucky. These were cars you had to drive—and suffer slightly while you were doing it. I’m not saying it was a better time, but the cars were way, way, more sexy.”
