From the earliest days of owner/engine builder Ted Spehar, factory engineer Tom Hoover, and driver Don Carlton, the narrative is a colorful look at the team's inner workings, programs, victories, and even defeats. Set against a backdrop of characters like Bill Grumpy Jenkins, Dandy" Dick Landy, and Dyno Don Nicholson, Carlton's driving prowess had few equals. Indeed, called by one period scribe as a cyborg, the likeable pilot would pay the ultimate price as a drag racing driver. From the Challengers and `Cuda to the Demons and Colts, the book showcases the cars that made Chrysler so much a part of this racing era, as well as Ted Spehar's never-before-revealed information on the 1970s Pro Stock engine program.
Geoff Stunkard's passion for Chrysler drag racing is fully on display here as he details the most intimate secrets of the Chrysler skunkworks program. This book is a must read for all Chrysler drag racing enthusiasts.
