    Default Book review

    Just read a book by John Morton titled Inside Shelby American.
    I only finish about 5% of the books I start to read, but I couldn't put this one down. You don't have to be into Cobra's to enjoy the read. It is all about the struggle to transition from making racing a hobby to a profession.
    Highly recommend that you ask Santa for a copy!

    That sounds like it covers a shared interest.

    There's another one on Shelby American called, "Go Like Hell" It's all about Ford's efforts to defeat Ferrari at LeMans with its GT40. I got it from a friend of ours and she isn't into cars at all. The book is that good. I think I heard someone is making a movie based on the book, too. Not 100 percent on that one.

    It's called The 24 hour War and it's produced by Adam Carolla who is quite the car nut. The way I understand it, he footed the bill for a highly produced film and just wants to make most of his money back.
