About the Author

I have been a lover of old iron since I was a child. My interest took me into the marketing and sales of classic cars all over the world as the General Manager of a classic car dealership.

I started The Old Car Nut Book by writing my own stories and I am including a few of them in this book, but I have more stories to share and so do the rest of the old car nuts in America. The Old Car Nut Book is my way of sharing with other Old Car Nuts. It is also my way of reaching out to younger generations of car nuts that are beginning their journeys and fulfilling their dreams. Here are the stories of the people that paved the road ahead.

As this first book gains popularity, stories will continue to be gathered and more editions put into print. The response from current contributors, potential contributors and others, anxious to read these stories, has been tremendous. You can be in an upcoming edition by sending your story in now.

More About the Author

Born in 1951, I'm a Baby Boomer and since the days of dealerships covering showroom windows before each new year model was unveiled, I have been a lover of old iron. My interest took me into the marketing and sales of classic cars all over the world as the General Manager of a classic car dealership.

Today, my interest lies in preserving old car stories and I was presented with an "Outstanding Automotive Historian" award at the 2015 Washington State Hot Rod Hall of Fame awards banquet.

If you used to show more love and attention to your old cars than you did to your old girlfriends, then this is the book for you.

This book is filled with stories of those hot summer nights, cruising the strip looking for adventure, with engines racing as hot as the hormones. Where anything could happen and usually did. Four wheels in the fast lane. Those were the days. Remember? Memory a little shaky? Well, this book will bring them all back. These stories are automotive love affairs.

Under the hood of this book lie the tales of big engines and bigger dreams, but what drives these stories are the hearts behind the wheel. That passion is what makes these stories special. This is one of those "just one more" books. "I'll just read one more story..." It's that kind of book. This is more than a book about cars, this is a book about cars and the men (and ladies) who love them.

There are even pictures, for when you're too tired to read. Warning: If you leave a copy of this book in your bathroom, you'll notice your friends spending more time in there. So you're going to want to buy extra copies to keep that from happening. You're welcome.

If phrases like "powerful pavement pounding missile" and "racking off your pipes" gets your motor running, then it is time to grab your reading glasses, slide in behind the wheel and get ready for a sweet ride. This book rocks!

This is a great book- both for "old" car nuts and "old car" nuts as well. Very well written and packed with real-life stories from the
guys who owned and drove them. Takes me back to some of the great vehicles I had as a younger man . . the '55 Chevy, '57 Ford and my all-time favorite . . my '67 Ford F100 with a 390, dual exhaust and 6 miles per gallon! Thanks for a wonderful volume.

So he really likes this book. It has a lot of pictures of old cars and some interesting history about each of them. He really enjoyed the book and given how hard he is to please, that's big praise. Nice heavy paper stock, as well.

This provides many examples of people who loved a specific car or type of car and how they got pleasure from driving it and fixing it. It brings back memories for the reader of some of his/her cars and trucks from back when.

The stories are such a great read because they are not fiction (maybe a little embellished but that's what makes them great). I am from Tacoma WA and they hit close to home.

This book contains stories amazingly similar to ones you have heard before if you are a car enthusiast.
These stories are the same type of tales heard from folks at car meets - usually the people who didn't bring a car or truck to the meet.
"I had one of those in high school...never should have sold it."
"My first car was a 1930 Hupmobile with 1395 original miles on it in 1951."
"They don't make 'em like they used to with real steel - solid."

Save your money. Go to a car show or swap meet and hear the stories live and in person.
