Way Beyond "Barn Finds" ... PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Way Beyond The Story Behind Smokey Yunick's Boss Mustang is just one of 50 entertaining true stories from the collector car world.Smokey was racing's ultimate trickster. At one race the NASCAR sanction boys noted 16 infractions. With gas tank removed after the inspection, he grinned. "Make that 17," he said and drove away, having plumbed the roll bar for additional gas storage.Although not the story of the Boss 302 herein, these are the kind of anecdotes that make this book a fun read and more than just facts about barn-finds. Book #3 in this incredible new collection of automotive 'barn finds and beyond' stories include...A persistent Porsche mechanic who asked each 904 owner if their car would be for sale after a race. He paid only $7,000 to one agreeable owner and the car recently sold for over a million dollars...Celebrities like Steve McQueen, who bought a Jaguar XK-SS, originally created for the track but turned into a street car by the factory, now worth $10 million!...A photographer who always wondered why his Mercedes gullwing was a little different. He sold it for under $8,000 only to find out decades later that the chassis was from a Le Mans winner in '52. A luckier later owner rebodied it, probably worth $20 million today.
