The Old Car Nut Book #3: "A century of road trips across America" (Volume 3)

 
9780989806527: The Old Car Nut Book #3:

Everyone has a road trip story and book #3 in The Old Car Nut Book series provides a sampling of accounts on the road from all over the country. Readers will enjoy tales of trips up the Alcan Highway or traveling across country with Harold Lemay in search of cars and memorabilia for his amazing collection. Of course, road trips are seldom without a bit of trouble here and there and so we find ourselves sharing the travails of those that ran out of gas or had problems and how they were solved. These stories tell of how the road brought friends and family closer together and how new friends can have a major impact on us. In the end, readers will be surprised and delighted at how giving and caring, resourceful, and inspiring people can be when the chips are down and the road begs us to keep going to our journeys end.

This third book begins with what might be one of the earliest documented road trips as a family moves from South Dakota to Oregon in a Model T Touring car in 1915 . Keep reading and you discover stories that will make you laugh or just plain inspire you to get in your special ride and go!

Excerpts from The Old Car Nut Book #3

When we arrived I pulled out a little bottle of spray-on detailer and we proceeded to clean the day’s bugs off the nose and windshield. Then I saw it. There was a paint chip on the front of the car! Blake could see the frown on my brow and asked what was wrong. “Our first rock chip. Darn it!” Then something really amazing happened. Blake put his hand on my shoulder and said, “Don’t worry dad. That’s not a rock chip. That’s a memory mark. Every time you look at that you’ll be reminded what a special day today was.” I about started crying right then and there. This was an eight year old teaching his old man the meaning of life. It’s the adventures, not the things that count. I’ll never forget that moment. Excerpt from The Greene Mille by Mark Greene

We pressed on for Colorado. “Just another six hundred miles” said Mom, taking a long drag on her cigarette. Dad leaned into the steering wheel, glaring hard at the road ahead. We passed signs directing “This way to the Grand Canyon!” but Dad would not be detoured to look at some culvert lined with souvenir shacks. Excerpt from The Great Road Trip By Steve Walker

The car I would be taking was my well-traveled 1927 Model T roadster that I have owned for the past 10 years. I built the car in style of a late 1920’s era early Hot Rod or “Gow Job” as they were called in the period. These cars are widely regarded as the “Grandfathers of the Hot Rod” and are something that is only now finally coming back to the main stream again. Excerpt from The Road Was A Blur by Clayton Paddison

Grab the book and take a seat, you're about to experience America from the eyes of the young and the old. Enjoy your ride as you traverse new freeways and old roads in book #3 of The Old Car Nut Book series... “A century of travel across America. “
