Collector’s History of the Automobile Bookgammon™ Set

This book is subtitled with The Development of Man’s Greatest Means of Transportation, which is utter poppycock! Pardon my language. I contend that man’s greatest means of transportation is easily the trusty BICYCLE. Allow me to elucidate. First of all, I LOVE driving, unless there’s a lot of traffic and time constraints. Cars are also great for long distances, quicker transport, hauling, and hills. Bikes, however, are convenient, healthy, pollution-free, quiet, versatile, easily maintained, inexpensive, reliable…hm, that’s all I can come up with right now…(see Description below for more)

…I guess I just prefer bikes. Maybe I should leave it up to the people. The Wikipedia bicycle page says there have been over 1 billion bikes produced and it goes on to say that that number far exceeds the number of cars. This may be true, but their motor vehicle page includes trucks and buses (but not off-road vehicles) and puts the total number at over 1 billion as well, so I’ll call that a draw. Now that I think of it, I love going to classic car shows, but I’ve never been to a classic bicycle show. I rescind my earlier comment and call the race between cars and bikes a photo finish. As far as the backgammon board goes, the triangles are made from pictures of an old car ad and Vauxhall’s Prince Henry.
