This book was originally my Grandfather’s, and it ended up with me. A lot of these books are great for me to flip through and look at the photos and illustrations, but the dense historical year-by-year details about particular races and drivers is a bit outside of my wheelhouse. I appreciate it, but I don’t dive into it too deep.
I really like the dust jacket of this book, and I’d like to believe that the actual title is RACING CARS RACING CARS RACING CARS RACING CARS – as this is also how the title appears on the spine of the book.
If you take the dust cover off, you are treated to a really cool illustration printed onto the cloth cover. This duo-tone design is what I was going for on Salem flat track poster I recently created.
A few race faces, equipped with helmets that would get you a ticket if worn today:
