In his typically thorough fashion, Boyce reacquaints the reader with the actual racers in the trenches who drove this relentless march of Chevrolet performance. These competitors bred the massive fields of of Stock, Super Stock and Modified Eliminator cars that formed the "little guy" backbone of drag racing from 1955 through 1980 and all the way to present day. With a fabulous display of color and B&W photos. He introduces you to racers you may have long forgotten and reminds you of all their remarkable contributions to the sport we all know and love. And all of it brought to us by the extraordinarily simple and easy to modify architecture of small and big block Chevrolet engines and, of course, the W engines as well. This book is not a picture skimmer as the text and captions draw you in to learn more about all the fantastic cars you will see. You "will" read the whole thing and return again and again to enjoy the powerful and colorful images and history of Chevrolet drag racing. Another great presentation by one of drag racing's best historians.
