Easy read, great book.
For me, the chapter on the Grand Sport was worth the price of the book. I remember Delmo Johnson driving at Green Valley when I was a teenager. Before the Grand Sport, Johnson had a Jag XK-SS with a Chevy engine. Jim Hall and Hap Sharp and the Mecom team out of Houston would show up and the field would be full of amazing cars. It was an incredible era. I watched the Mecom team unload their enclosed semi-trailer once and at the very back, the last car out was a Lola-Ford.......and we all know where that story ended!
