From Tex

“I've been thinking of doing this book for the past 40 or so years.  “This book is designed to give the younger reader a lot of information about the hobby/sport/industry they might not get otherwise, but it is a fun read for all ages. I think a lot of fathers may want a copy for their young'un's”

“Years ago I became friends with Hank Felson (Henry Gregor Felsen) who did the first paperback on rodding, titled “Hot Rod”.  I got sidetracked with all the how-to books through the years, and a few general interest books such as “We Came In Peace” (sold over 4 million) about the 1st moon landing.  Anyway, the idea has always been to do a

book that would be reader specific and appeal to all ages. I have been doing this writing for about 2 years”.

“The book was printed in the states in Sept. or October.  I released the book in Australia a couple months earlier, just to get a feel of acceptance, so far it has been very positive”.  

“I have been going to both Hawaii and Australia for years and married an Aussie woman 8 years ago, so now I live in Australia 8-9 months a year (during best weather) and then come back to Idaho for the summer and Bonneville”.
