Arthur Hailey has shown that great writing can and does stand the test of time. "Wheels" takes place circa 1971 when American automobiles and the people that build them, were working three shifts, shiney, brand new automobiles being driven off of the assembly line, approx. one per minute.
Hailey brings all of his characters to life, from Adam Trenton a "go-getter" white-collar management member to Rollie Knight, a black street thug who finds he almost can make a better life for himself in "Wheels" as he is finally employed and off of the mean streets of inner-city Detroit.
As a lifelong "car person" fan/owner of an American Musclecar of the late 60s, early 70s I was truly amazed at how Mr. Hailey talked about innovations, ideas, designs circa 1971, that would find it's way into American cars ten, fifteen, twenty years later, including safety items. Mr. Hailey knows Detroit, and amongst today's strife in our American auto industry, take some time and read how it once was during Detroit's "Glory Days"!
You'll meet characters in "Wheels" you will never forget.
