Hi....several times over the past year, I solicited the help of board members in sorting several Studebaker performance topics for a book I was writing for CarTech, Inc. (one of the threads HERE! (http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/showthread.php?92073-Studebaker-Bonneville-questions&p=957931#post957931))

Well, Selling the American Muscle Car: Marketing Detroit Iron in the 60s and 70s is finished and will hit bookshelves later this month. For a signed copy, please visit this website:

www.sellingmuscle.net

For a preview of the book, you can visit the publisher's site (scroll to the bottom and find the appropriate tab):

I know Bob Palma and George Krem from the Pure Stock Drags, so they were very helpful in this endeavor. However, a lot of other folks here were happy to help find elusive answers, so :cheers: to you too!

:!!: Diego had Proof Copies of the book's various sections at The 2016 Pure Stock Muscle Car Drag Race, but not the complete book just yet, and allowed me to read them over thoroughly.

The Studebaker section is excellent; more pages and material than you'd ever expect, with really nice photos, both contemporary color and period black and white, some of which I had never seen! George and I worked with Diego to be sure the Studebaker section was complete and accurate...and as far as I am concerned, it is. The Studebaker National Museum and others helped supply photos as well.

If the book's topic interests you and you'd like assurance that Studebaker is well represented, and accurately so, I can assure you it is. I can't wait to get a copy now that they are rolling off the press. :!: :cool: BP

Will you guys quit writing so many "Studebaker" books!!!;)

I was back in the Studebaker National Museum Monday and plunked down $26.70 for a copy of Stu's "My Father The Car."

So how much is this new book going to set me back???:)

I wonder if it would not hurt to see who all wants to pick up a signed copy at the MCACN show, to ensure there will be enough copies on hand for everyone. I know I would like one.

I am not responsible for the inventory brought to MCACN - that's the publisher's deal. I have nothing to do with it other than to sign books.

My site, on the other hand, gives me the opportunity to sell books and assist my bottom line beyond the royalties.

So if you're going to be at MCACN and they run out, you know you can purchase a signed copy from me at retail+shipping.

Good to know this. Thanks for the heads-up!
