From scrap heap to the Pebble Beach Concours, a little Rolls-Royce goes on a big journey.
by Reinald Schumann
Zero-Hour means the immediate postwar years, the years in which war-ravaged Germany clawed its way back into the civilized—and mechanized—world. A-racing we must go!
Probably the most thorough book to date, with hundreds of photos, many of which new to the record.
by Allen Platt
From moonshine runner to multiple Hall of Famer, Platt was a showman on and off the track. And if Chevrolet hadn’t pulled out of racing, the subtitle might well be reading differently. Written by one of his sons, who is himself a racer, the book explores an iconic career.

by Diego Rosenberg
Just the name “muscle car” was enough to make traditional car buyers—adults, male, conservative—shudder at the thought of running into hotrodders and hooligans at the showroom. Quite the pickle for the carmakers’ marketing folks.

Don’t even take the time to read the review—order the book first before someone else does. There are only 3500 copies of this homage to the photographer’s friends in the racing world.
