This is not your ordinary audio book! It's another collection of stories from Smokey Yunick's autobiography: Best Damn Garage in Town.

Smokey Yunick, the world's most famous mechanic, accomplished more in one life than most people could in five. He flew 50 missions as a B-17 pilot in WWII. He was an integral part of the birth of stock car racing and ran open wheel cars during the glory days of the Indy 500. He spent years in the jungles of Ecuador and held 10 U.S. patents. Smokey was concerned for the future, so he developed more efficient and powerful engines for passenger cars and safer crash barriers for race tracks. These are the real stories of racing and everything automotive in America told by someone who was there every step of the way!

To add to the fun we had people from all around racing read Smokey's stories. And while they were at it, we asked them to give you their thoughts on Smokey you won't believe what they had to say!

Review:

I've spent hours blowing off my other duties here, unable to pull myself from these straight-shooting pages. -- Jeff Koch, Hot Rod Magazine

Smokey was a one-man Greatest Generation whose World War II adventures seem divided between hot planes and hot nurses. -- Robert Lipsyte, The New York Times
