Book Two in The Old Car Nut Book series provides more stories from old car guys and gals from across America. You will read about the personal exploits of people that love the classics, muscle cars, and hot rods and the varied reasons for that enduring love. Relive their experiences, both good and bad, and read about the amazing effect that the cars have on people from all walks of life. The old cars seem to bind Americans together and provide a way to connect with others that they may never get a chance to know otherwise
Caution: Like book one, once you pick this book up, it will be difficult to put down and you will want to reread the stories over and over, sharing with the people that make your experience in the world of old cars worthwhile.
Reviews for book one in The Old Car Nut Book series:
"What a fun book. Everyone has a car story. This book pulls a few of them out. It is one of those books you dont want to end. If I had my way, there would be at least 20 volumes.
"Reading the stories in this book is like pulling up a lawn chair in group of old car nuts at a car show and listening to their stories. These stories are written by the people who actually lived the experiences."
Excerpts from The Old Car Nut Book #2
I watched as the two of them got in the car and pulled away. A right turn at the end of the block would take her straight to the grocery store, and a left would take her to Gratiot and the cruise. After a long pause, her left turn signal came on. I smiled. The doctor was in. I hoped the ride led to a happier time, and much needed healing.

Excerpt from The History of West Coast Kustoms and How Paso Came About by Penny Pichette
News traveled fast. One weekend before the show, Rich got a call from Joe Bailon inviting him to his home for a BBQ. Joe said that he had heard about our get together and he and Gene Winfield wanted to talk to Rich about it.
Excerpt from Model A in the Barn by Dale Erickson
The car spent the next 42 years in one barn or another until I retired in 2010. I rented a trailer and winched the car out of the barn it had spent the last dozen years in and hauled it home. I changed the oil in the engine, transmission, and rear end. Then, I bought a new battery, 4 spark plugs, and 5 gallons of gas. After I took the Tillotson carb apart and sprayed carb cleaner all over it, I put it back together with the same gaskets. It started up as if it had been running the previous week.
Excerpt from Mowing Lawns and Model Cars by Steve Merryman
It had Lakes Pipes, flipper hub caps, and white tuck and roll interior. In script, painted on each "B" pillar, was "Mood Indigo". I couldnt remember ever seeing the car on the street, but the whole package made a really lasting impression. I think that was the first custom car I had ever seen.
