With Christmas only quite a long time away, one enterprising author has come up with the perfect gift book for the petrolhead in your life, and it’s called Cars On Clocks. The brilliant idea behind this remarkable book came from authorist Lambsley Cashin. ‘I noticed that sometimes digital clocks display numbers that are also the names of cars,’ Cashin explains. ‘So I decided to take photos at the precise minute that happened and put them all together. The result is Cars On Clocks which contains over 32 different car names on clocks, such as 4:05, 5:35 and 4:18’. However, given the limitations of the digital clock format, Cashin warns fans of some cars that the name of their favourite model will not appear in the book; ‘Clearly certain car names would never appear on a clock, such as the SAAB 9000 on a clock,’ he says. ‘But thankfully, they will be included in my follow up book, which will be packed full of the model names of cars such as the Mini 1000, the Maserati 3200 and the Plymouth BOOBIES. I’m going to call it Cars On Calculators‘.
