The Story Behind Smokey Yunick's Boss Mustang is just one of 50 entertaining true stories from the collector car world. Smokey was racing's ultimate trickster. At one race the NASCAR sanction boys noted 16 infractions. With gas tank removed after the inspection, he grinned. "Make that 17," he said and drove away, having plumbed the roll bar for additional gas storage. Although not the story of the Boss 302 herein, these are the kind of anecdotes that make this book a fun read and more than just facts about barn-finds. Book #3 in this incredible new collection of automotive 'barn finds and beyond' stories include... A persistent Porsche mechanic who asked each 904 owner if their car would be for sale after a race. He paid only $7,000 to one agreeable owner and the car recently sold for over a million dollars... Celebrities like Steve McQueen, who bought a Jaguar XK-SS, originally created for the track but turned into a street car by the factory, now worth $10 million!... A photographer who always wondered why his Mercedes gullwing was a little different. He sold it for under $8,000 only to find out decades later that the chassis was from a Le Mans winner in '52. A luckier later owner rebodied it, probably worth $20 million today.

Pasará mucho tiempo antes de que otra biografía coseche tan encendidos elogios como los obtenidos por esta obra definitiva (el adjetivo no es por una vez hiperbólico) sobre la fulgurante ascensión y la apoteósica decadencia de un cantante ya instalado en la mitología popular contemporánea. Basten dos muestras extraídas del New York Times: «Un triunfo del arte biográfico [...] un libro profundo y conmovedor» (Stephen Wright); «hagamos un poco de ruido [...] la mejor biografía jamás escrita sobre una estrella del rock» (Gerald Marzorati). Incluso el huraño Bob Dylan ha abandonado su guarida para unirse al coro de apologistas: «[Elvis] parece salir de estas páginas, notamos cómo respira; este libro anula todos los demás». Tras una meticulosa investigación, Pete Guralnick afronta las luces y las sombras de Elvis para devolvernos a la persona silenciada por su máscara y rescatar la realidad sepultada bajo el templo de la idolatría. Guralnick no juzga ni declama: se limita a mostrar los hechos con apasionado rigor o con piadosa objetividad sin caer jamás ni en la crueldad exhibicionista ni en el sentimentalismo devoto. El resultado es un retrato magistral del individuo y de la sociedad que lo elevó a los abismos del trono.

"Un éxito de ventas nacionales, basado en cientos de entrevistas con los familiares y allegados, investigación hecha en archivos y fuentes inutilizadas anteriormente revelan en esta saga, toda la historia detrás de una familia de alto perfil político." - Editorial Review Cuando, a mediados del siglo XIX, Patrick Kennedy llegó a Estados Unidos huyendo de la Gran Hambruna irlandesa, poco podía imaginar que, al cabo de pocas generaciones, sus descendientes encarnarían todas las grandezas y miserias del «sueño americano». En efecto, en unos años, esta familia de católicos emigrados se iniciaba en los manejos de la política local. Ya en 1960, al acceder a la presidencia de Estados Unidos, John Fitzgerald Kennedy no sólo se convirtió en uno de los líderes más carismáticos del mundo, sino que encumbró definitivamente a su familia como epítome de la fama, la riqueza y el poder. Sin embargo, sobre esta fascinante saga planean abundantes sombras, como los asesinatos de John Kennedy y de su hermano Robert, y la espiral autodestructiva de algunos de los miembros del clan.

Aside from Ferraris, no model of old car is rocketing up in value as much as the 356 "bathtub" Porsches, which made their debut in 1949 when they were being hand built in a converted sawmill in Gmund, Austria. Wallace Wyss, author of the incredible Barn Find series, decided to take the best pictures from his long out-of-print Porsche 356 Photo Album and add additional new pictures to a new version, including freshly shot ones from recent Porsche events, including Rennfest, to provide a visual guide to all he different variations. It starts with the all aluminum ones from Gmund, then then goes into the pre-A, the A, the B, and the C. The frosting on the cake is new visual coverage of the factory race cars such as the Carrera Abarth GT/L, the SL356 cars and the "three pointed scrapers." Porsches built by outside coachbuilders such as Glockler and Beutler are also included. Wyss also applied his considerable historian skills to write an 8,000 word history of the 356 starting with the very first car and ending with the last. If you are new to the subject of 356s, this book gives you a generous overview, as well as an inkling as to why they are now bring so sought after by a new generation of collectors, with the Carrera models leading the way.

DIVIt’s every motorcyclist’s dream. A friend or acquaintance says, “You know, there’s an old bike that’s been sitting in this garage for years.” The hunt is on. And rather than the usual worthless Hondazukimaha pile of hopeless oxidation, at the back of that barn you find a genuine classic, the motorcycle collector’s dream. The Vincent in the Barn tells forty such stories--tales of motorcycle hunting dreams come true. From Ducatis in basements to Vincents abandoned in sheds, Harleys in barns to Brit bikes moldering behind urban garages, these are the stories that fuel every motorcyclist’s fantasies. The only difference? They’re true.
