A minor point: Bob Muravez was in his early twenties - not 16 as suggested - when he began driving the "Quincy Automotive Special" (later known as the "Freight Train") in 1961.

If you remember the front-engined dragsters from the Golden Age of Drag Racing, then this book's for you. Tons of great rails and the characters who drove them. My only quibble is that it's too weighted towards the California cars. But even so, this is a must-buy. Historic photos and interesting commentary. You'll be happy to have this one.
