...an interesting read...they weave entertaining stories of vehicular crime, racing, moviemaking and various mishaps and mayhem." - the New York Times"
In the vein of Ripley's Believe It or Not, this book aims to get at the facts of the matter, and put to rest some automotive urban legends. A reader is bound to get engrossed into more than a few of the stories told within, and while some are more interesting than others, and the focus is decidedly American-centric, Stone and Lerner's book is a fun read, and an easy way to pass some time. Sometimes, facts really are stranger than fiction, but who doesn't love to be surprisedwhile learning new things about cars?" - Petrolicious.com"
Authors Preston Lerner and Matt Stone are seasoned automotive writers and the book reads with the insider intrigue of two scribes talking to friends over beers. The stories are long, involved and authenticated as well as possible. This isn't a book of puffy tidbits. But there is sex, fraud, sunken treasure, the ghost of James Dean and so much more." - San Diego Union Tribune
