The fascinating biography of David Scott-Moncrieff, alias `Bunty' - a colourful personality, an enthusiastic car expert, a charming entertainer, and passionate vintage car addict. Bunty's favourite marque was Rolls-Royce, and, for some time, he claimed to be the No 1 in the Rolls-Royce second-hand car trade worldwide. He also owned world-famous race cars and heaps of worn-out hearses (to be rebuilt), supercharged Mercedes classics, and even an antique Steamer.

Here, you will meet them all, along with some of his many admirers who had the courage and pleasure to enter the passenger seat. A well-known personality on the classic car scene and in the motoring trade, this is his long-awaited biography, written by someone who knew him well. Halwart Schrader travelled to England to meet Bunty on many occasions, and has written this biography in full co-operation with Bunty's son, Humphrey Scott-Moncrieff.
