This needs to be kept btt............
Thanks! E-mail is on the way. You have no idea how these books influenced me as a kid.
This is better than Kool..... Email sent....
I have never read the book, but after reading every one's comments I have got to get a copy.
Closer to the front.........
I remember reading Hot Rod, Street Rod and Crash Club back in the late '50's or early '60's. Great books!
I to have read your father's book's usually while we were watching science movie's got in trouble many times! during the 8th grade will buy them when they come out
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.
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."
Does anyone here know that the book Ragtop was firstly titled Cup Of Fury?
Sounds Good, can't wait !
Different ending for Link in Cup of Fury otherwise the same.
Yes, that was the original title! Are they charging a pretty penny for it on Amazon? It is hard to come by these days.
Recieved my oversized postcard with the new cover art and a personal note from Holly . Outstanding !! Can't wait to check out the added forward , photography, and family photo gallery .
Ordered my copy today!!! Looking forward to receiving it and reading it again.
Ordered 2 copies, one to read and one to put away for future generations. Wish they had done it in hardback though.
email will be sent here shortly glad to hear i am missing some of the books and i would love a new set for the collection
Thanks for the heads up, I'll email you my address. Keep us posted on the rest of the series.
Look what I have had for many years now.
First read some of his books when I was a car nut in high school, loved them then still do.
Can we order now?I've been watching for my post card.
'WWW.IOWAN.COM'. Go to the Iowan Store under Iowa Books.
I found my postcard in a stack of mail after returning from an out of state business trip. Gotta order my copy now, I need to read it for the fourth or fifth time after thirty years!
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.
The first two Henry Gregor Felsen books hooked me too!
Holly any ideas on reprinting street rod crash club etc ??
