Time—it’s all relative. Where early watches made do with only one hand (hours) today’s atomic clocks track nanoseconds. This book won’t tell you why people wear watches but how.

The common denominator to the feature cars is that they are all the “same” model but they’re vastly different from each other—which is the whole point of hot rods. Their current custodian owns cars of all stripes but rods are his first love.

The author is a longtime motoring journalist so, yes, there is car-content here. But this collection of newspaper columns ranges wide and far—see subtitle. If you remember the Bolus & Snopes racing team, from the 1970s, you’re probably already in the mood for this book.
by Lance Cole
Not a new subject at all; except, Cole takes it to places readers may find difficult to follow. “Polarizing” is the word; “interesting,” sure.

Unlike other forms of motorsports, gender doesn’t seem to be an inherently restrictive factor on the salt. Over 200 women have stepped up to the starting line, and dozen of them have set records. Many more work the event behind the scenes, and then there are the engineers and builders.

Enzo Ferrari, that arch proponent of “function over form,” is said to have made one exception: the 312 P. It may only be an anecdote but what facts are known about this car are in this book, along with fantastic period photos.

You saw the movie! Now read the book! Filmmaker Quentin Taratino, of Pulp Fiction fame, scores another hit. Rated R for language, alcohol use, and sexual content!

You’d have to be quite the Porsche geek to have known, let alone seen, any of the cars shown here. There are many more where these came from and one can only speculate why Porsche allowed these 15 to be made public.
by Ken Gross & Robert Genat
Many stars are on the hot rod firmament; this book shows the 25 whose light reaches farthest and explains what technical and stylistic attributes endowed them with lasting influence.
Thinking of owning a Porsche? Need some persuasion? Or inspiration? Take a look at what these folks have to say about their Porsches. They’re from all over the planet and all walks of life but you’ll definitely have heard some of these names!

Speed shop is such an established term that you find it in the dictionary, certainly an American one. Back in the day, many shops didn’t just sell over the counter go-fast parts but made their own, and all were places in which to hang out and talk shop.

A veritable Annus Horibilis. If you paid attention you probably have an opinion or three. So did the author, but he ended up revising some of them in the course of writing this book! Will you?
