Holiday shopping guide for car guys

Some of us old school car guys still enjoy reading an actual book; you know, holding it in your hand, the smell of ink and paper and all that.  Well I’ve written a bunch of car books over the years, and most of them are shown in the ad pasted here, plus a couple new ones.  Steve McQueen, James Garner, Paul Newman and now The Camfather, Ed Iskenderian, are all my car guy heroes, and its been my honor to write and publish their car guy biographies.  I don’t sell them on this site, but you can find them all at each publisher’s site, Amazon, or from my friends at Autobooks-aerobooks.com in Burbank, California.  Stock up and happy reading.  Thanks, Happy Hols, and best wishes for 2018.
