If you see hot rod potential in rusty old cars, this book is for you. Auto restorer and author Lyles takes us on his restoration journey of a 1946 Ford into a stylish hot rod. Of course, it takes a well-stocked garage and mechanic skills to complete any auto project, and this is no exception. Throughout the process, Lyles provides working insight and expertise. The text reveals lots of practical instruction and some little tricks of the trade. Photos are a bit amateurish, obviously taken by the author. For more general coverage on converting old vehicles into roadsters and hot rods, try Dennis W. Parks's How To Build a Hot Rod. Still, Lyles's artistry comes through. Recommended for larger collections or where there is demand.
