Editorial Reviews

Hemmings Motor News - Jim Donnelly
"If you liked and respected Garner as much as we here did, you will simply love this book."
Victory Lane
"A cool book about a real auto and racing enthusiast, racer, movie star, husband, father and all-around legend."
The Hamilton Spectator - Tim Miller
"This book is a tribute to Garner, not the actor, but Garner the car guy. It is well-researched and easy to read, with great visual impact for the reader."
