Not in That Car is the story of an Englishman who drove a thirty-two year old MG Midget car around the world, alone. Roy Locock travels across Europe and down to Southern India before circumnavigating Australia and following the Pan-American Highway from Argentina to Canada. Dismissing a Taliban attack as ‘not being personal’, he explains the intricacies of fording through Australia’s worst floods for 30 years and is badly shaken by an earthquake in Panama City. In between the driving, he takes the time to enjoy walking in the Himalayan foothills, crossing the Andes and trekking in the Rockies. During the trip, Roy and his MG Midget covered over 39 000 miles, through 27 countries and raised money for Unicef along the way.  Roy’s safe arrival back in the UK was picked up and reported on by every major paper in the UK – as well as news agencies across the world.  A highly readable account of an epic journey that will appeal to travellers and petrol heads alike.
