Street Sleepers:The Art of the Deceptively Fast Car.
on September 17, 2011
I have been waiting for a book on "Sleeper" Cars,cars that you would never expect to harbor sinister intentions,a Bigblock or juiced up small Block,NOS or nitrous,turbo or supercharged.Not just fox bodied mustangs but The Beautiful Cover Car,A Faded Green Nova with Dish caps,or how about a Corvette Powered Volvo Station Wagon? Maybe you'd be surprised by a Cadillac Escalade Powered Mercury Zephyr(The Ford Fairmont's twin)that looks just like a bland grandma grocery getter or a beat up car?Diesel Trucks? Gotcha covered,4x4 Pickup?Done.A Beautiful Black Buick Skylark which despite it's muscle car looks deceives with it's dogdish caps?Or a 1977 Buick Le Sabre Fullsize two door Stock?That is powered by something to give anyone a run for their money.Or A Green Grand Prix,cars that look mundane to some that can leave you in the dust.My only compliant is when is the next book coming out?Hopefully a Volume 2 and/or A Factory Sleepers book?You can't lose with this unique and beautifully done book.
