HASH(0x94e48774) étoiles sur 5 The Best of the Best of Drag Racing 28 octobre 2014
Par Mark Graham - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Ah, the golden age of drag racing. Doug Boyce's "Drag Racing Quarter-Mile Warriors" speeds through time to give readers a fully narrated and illustrated look at the history of drag racing. Chapters include Diggers: The Top Dogs, Funny Cars and Not So Funny Cars, Rockin' Pro Stocks, The Wild Bunch, and Door Slammers Galore. If you are a racing enthusiast, these headings will likely evoke feelings of nostalgia and bring back thrilling memories...

Reading "Drag Racing's Quarter-Mile Warriors" is like reading a book on Olympic athletes. Only instead of talented men and women trained in various sports, the pages are filled with cars as main characters. Boyce has compiled stories and photographs of some of the most famous dragsters of all time (as well as their drivers) and takes a look at where some of them are today. The selections on how drag racing technology evolved over time are full of gearhead jargon, which car lovers can happily sink their teeth into.

While this book would make a great addition to any drag racing library, if you're looking for a history that is more chronological, you'll want to check out Allan Girdler's "American Road Race Specials, 1934-70: Glory Days of Homebuilt Racers" too. In addition to sharing stories about famous cars, Girdler also delves into how the phenomenon of drag racing related to current events and goes even deeper into the people who raced.

A very unique approach to telling the story of known drag cars, their history, as well as to where they are today. Doug's way of telling the stories are very interesting, which provides great reading material as well as excellent photos. This is another remarkable book by Doug Boyce, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is a drag racing buff.

Enjoyed another great drag racing book by Doug Boyce. I agree with everything Todd said. We saw many of the P.S. cars back in the day. It was very interesting to see the survival and restoration of so many drag cars. Great text, great photos, loved the book. Looking forward to more from Doug.

HASH(0x94e4899c) étoiles sur 5 Burn Down That Quarter-Mile 29 octobre 2014
Par David Hale - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book by Doug Boyce published by CarTech will give you most everything you would want to relive the glory days of drag racings from the 60’s and 70’s. For those of us who were there it will bring back the names, the cars, and the feeling that once was and is sorely missed. Nothing quite like the sounds, sights, smells, and theatrics of a Friday night at the strip and this book does much to bring that experience back. The pictures are fantastic and detailed stories that link them to what many may recall or be surprised they never knew. Time and again you will find yourself saying, yeah I remember that. These cars and drivers were special in a one of a kind contest.

The book covers Rails, Funny Cars, Pro Stocks, Gassers, and much more. I would have liked to have seen more on the Jets, and Wheel Standers but then again they had more of a specialty role back then and the dominant groups were those that would show up week in and out through the summer months. We get a good description and account of the cars, drivers then and also how a number of these great machines have been found and restored to former glory. Definitely a book for anyone and everyone with an interest in the origins, feats, and spectacle of drag racing and its unique niche in the quest for speed and competition in a straight line.

Drag Racing's Quarter-Mile Warriors by Doug Boyce is simply a great book. Whether you cut your teeth on drag racing during its Golden Age in the 50's-60's-70's or are just getting into it, there is something here for everyone. And that something comes at you from so many different levels including outstanding historical photographs of some of the most iconic dragsters ever built; background on legendary drivers who made the sport what it is including Ivo, Landy, Glidden, Sox & Martin; how the sport and technology has evolved over the years; and, what's been done to restore some of these classics and where they are today. My hats off to Doug Boyce for creating a very comprehensive history of drag racing that is both pleasing to the eye and to the discerning reader who wants to get a little grease under his finger nails by delving into the details.
