The Yenko Era.....Continued

Canonsburg & Beyond

Dedicated to Donna Mae Mims "Pink Lady of Racing"

Friend....Co-worker

Thanks for the great memories!

When Donna Mae, Warren Dernoshek and I were putting "The Yenko Era" together in 2005, we agreed that it was much like assembling a family scrapbook. Everybody contributes a little, photos, letters, stories...whatever they remember.

We attempted to give the reader an accurate picture of how things were really done and introduced them to a few of the people involved in the Yenko operation in Canonsburg.

As well received as the book has been....copies have been sold all over the world...I always felt that there was more to be told.

Warren and I (Donna Mae passed on several years ago after an extraordinary life of accomplishment) have been diligently working on a sequel. Its publication has been delayed several times due to my dissatisfaction with its content. Every time I felt it was ready to go, I would discover something else in my archives that should be added.

Just another scrapbook of events from the time.

Many Yenko fans have wondered what happened after the high times of the muscle cars of the 60's and early 70's. Certainly the Yenko operation assumed a lower profile, but did not disappear altogether. Don was always searching for new performance projects to recapture past glory.

Like the first book, there is no index...I want you to read all of it, not just cherry pick a few facts here and there. Call it author's prerogative!

Yenko Chevrolet / Yenko Sportscars was an intriguing collection of personalities and abilities.

I am honored to have been part of it!

Book Description Dog Ear Publishing, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.THE CLASS OF 27 At some time in our lives, we have all commented on how certain circumstances seem to bring time and space into sync and produce unique events. We sometimes refer to this as the planets being in alignment. .some refer to it as synchronicity. In the process of putting this book together, and I do mean that as in constructing it, versus writing it.It occurred to me that the 2 main characters, Don Yenko and Donna Mae Mims, were born in the same year, 1927. Denise McCluggage, a third person of signifi cance in auto racing of that time, and whose wonderful tribute to Don appears in this book, was also born in the same year. What are the odds that these 3 people would choose to follow essentially the same path. trendsetters in the automotive and racing world. I suspect that had they been born 20 years later that we may have seen them in the Space Program with NASA. Look at Don s interest documented in this book for proof. Each very creative in several disciplines.Don, in business, but also a well respected musician.and, of course his many racing successes. Donna Mae.very much ahead of her time, for a woman, in Marketing and Public Relations.not to mention her racing triumphs (1st woman National Champion in 1963 in SCCA) Denise, correspondent for several major newspapers and important magazines.as well as a highly respected race car competitor at the International level. Let s add a new word to our vocabulary Autostrology, the study of automotive preferences. This can be used to explain why certain people like certain kinds of cars.as in Chevy people, Ford folks, etc. What automotive sign were you born under? We hope that you will be entertained and, possibly informed, by our efforts in this book. Mark Gillespie Warren Dernoshek. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781457542701
