The photos in this edition are black and white.

One of the most distinctive and interesting eras in hot rodding was the early '60s, when Gasser-class and altered wheelbase machines were changing the definition of what a hot rod was. Eventually, the altered wheelbase machines gave rise to the Funny Car, but before they did, they left a permanent mark on the history of drag racing.

In How to Build Altered Wheelbase Cars, renowned writer Steve Magnante first walks readers through the colorful history of the altered wheelbase period and then shows them how to perform these radical modifications themselves. Magnante's fun and colorful style makes for entertaining reading, and the coverage of floorpan mods, chassis alterations, and both front and rear suspension upgrades are covered in great detail on three different chassis types. After reading this book, the basic technical tenets of altering vehicle wheelbase will be understood and the almost mythical legend surrounding such cars will be fully realized. What were once considered race only modifications can now be civilized for street use, and Magnante carefully reviews all of the relevant points for optimal appearance, performance, and safety.

The techniques and processes detailed between the covers of How to Build Altered Wheelbase Cars have been proven on Magnante's own personal vehicles, and after his many street miles and drag strip passes, readers can rely on Steve's advice. With plenty of historical images for reference and clear step-by-step how-to photos, you can build your own altered-wheelbase car for fun on the street or the strip.

About the Author:

Steve Magnante s unbridled enthusiasm for modified high-performance machinery is life-long, but for more than 15 years he has been sharing his passion and technical knowledge through print and television media. As a long-time staffer at Hot Rod Magazine and more recently as an automotive expert on the popular collector auto auction broadcasts, Steve has gained great recognition for his expertise. His knowledge of automotive history is extensive, and he is a student of American high-performance hot rods and racing cars as well. Known for his passion and lighthearted manner, Steve connects with readers on a personal level, sharing their love for cars while delivering solid technical advice.

Review:

Any library catering to DIY car enthusiasts will find this a unique, popular lend. ---California Bookwatch, April 2010

I really enjoyed this one, for its content and Magnante's excellent and descriptive style. I felt that I was there right in his garage. ---Total Kit Car (UK), May/June 2010

It's a great book, very entertaining. ---Ol' Skool Rodz, reivewed by Alan Mayes, January 2011
