I love this book. Written before the advent of the small block Chevy when the straight 6 could go head to head with a flat head v8. I have always been a fan of the extra main bearings and equal power pulse of the inline 6. I would love to set up a t-bucket with a Chevy six using information in this book.

Long before the small block chevy hunted the streets, the GMC was the way to go. California Bill tells all. Fun to read, cool to browse, I'm always picking mine up. Turn up the way back machine Sherman and gaze at ancient speed parts offered by long forgotten manufacturers. It's an exact copy of the original and you don't have top worry about the binding falling apart. Very Cool.
