    I remember reading Hot Rod, Street Rod and Crash Club back in the late '50's or early '60's. Great books!

    I read this book when I was back in school. It was in the school library. I looked for others by the author. It was a perfect read for a young motorhead. When I saw the name in this thread I knew right away who Henry G. Felsen is...sadly, ws(?). His words made a great impression on me for many reasons. I would be very pleased to receive a copy of the book. A PM follows.
     
  11. PM sent,Thanks for doing this!I'll buy a whole set if you do them!

    I've never, after all these years, been able to pick up a shop rag in my garage without thinking, "Bud wiped his hands on a piece of waste."

    Yes, that was the original title! Are they charging a pretty penny for it on Amazon? It is hard to come by these days.

    Ordered 2 copies, one to read and one to put away for future generations. Wish they had done it in hardback though.

    Hey everybody, my name is Ben and this is my first post. I stumbled onto this site while I was looking for the author or a great book that I bought at a yard sale about 15 years ago. I was about ten years old and I remember looking through a box of all books and albums when a flashy cover caught my eyes. It was a nicely portrayed artwork of a red deuce convertible with a greaser styled guy working on his flathead V8 and his girl standing in the car waving at her friends driving by. The book was indeed Hot Rod. I remember reading the first page of the book and instantly being sucked into the story unlike any book I've ever read before. Unfortunately I was never able to finish it and somehow through the years the book was misplaced. Needless to say, I'm very glad to hear that a new edition of the book may be released. I didn't even know your father had written other books similar to Hot Rod and I really look forward to reading them all.
