This new book tells the story of The British Motor Corporation, Leyland Australia, and Jaguar Rover Australia from its inception in the 1950's to its demise in the late 1990's. Anyone over 50 will remember their first car, or their family car, being a Morris, Austin, Wolseley, or a Leyland - with later imports from Jaguar, Triumph and Rover. Not only did the company make cars, but also Land Rovers, Tractors, Trucks, Buses and Coaches.

Compiled from official factory archives, personal and company photographs, and interviews with staff members involved, this book answers the question: What Happened? This large and diverse company (reborn over the years as BMC, Leyland, and JRA) lurched from loss to profit every ten years or so. Even after the dismal failure of the Leyland P76 and loss of the Zetland plant, the company then flew to dizzying heights as an importer, but in the end, succumbed to a seemingly inevitable collapse brought about by too much optimism in the face of a turbulent market.

A detailed history of the culture, the plants, the people, and the vehicles.
