Hot Rod Books - The Must Read Books !!
The must read of new hot rod books !
First, if you enjoy the 60's battle of Land Speed Racing, "Speed Duel" is a new novel, very well research and sourced by Sam Hawley. The book walks you through time and the ever escalating battle between the two titans of Land Speed Racing, Craig Breedlove and Art Arfons. These two gentlemen along with numerous others, too many to mention, okay I have to mention just one, Mickey Thompson, battle on the salt to break the 400 MPH barrier.
Take a ride by reading this epic adventure !
Second, the adventures of Bud Crayne detailed in the book "Hot Rod". Bud is a young, teenage rebel hot rodder, in the 50's searching for speed secrets to soup up his gow job. However; Bud's fearless adventures on the highways results in tragedy and a clash with 'The Lawman'.
Mrs. Holly Felsen Welch has re-released her father's book, much to my surprise and enjoyment as 30 plus years have passed since my last read of her father's book.
Want to live vicariously through the eyes of a rebel hot rodder and sacrifice it all with the real land speed demons of days gone by, buy these books !
