New slant six/junkyard book, and more
Did you ever spend the day in a wrecker’s yard, searching for the perfect parts for your old car? Did you reclaim and restore-on-the-cheap an old $200 junker given up for dead?
Gary Platz and Ed Dreistadt, longtime Slant Six Club writers, illustrators, and meet hosts, have put together some of their old material and a lot of new stories into My Slant On Things.
Follow Gary and Ed as they meander through the junkyards of their memories, full of slant sixes, camaraderie, mistakes, and achievements.
The book includes the “2,000 horsepower Valiant” which, I hasten to say, was nowhere near that power level), and other recollections, mistakes, and memories.
The print and digital versions are both quite inexpensive. The print version is 86 pages long, in a full 8.5×11 full-color format.
