A disappointment When I bought this book I was very excited to get home and start reading it. Being a huge classic and antique care fan, I could not wait to read the various stories about automotive archeology. About twenty pages into the book I realized that this book is less about automotive archeology and more concerning flipping cars for a profit. These stories all have a similar theme, research or chance upon someone's old car, do anything you can to acquire it, and then resell it for a profit. Some of these guys make ambulance chasing attorneys sound like respectable professions. My point is these old automobiles were owned and stored by guys who loved their cars. They linked romance with their cars. When these owners getup in their years, and the medical bills start piling up, so-called automotive archeologists hound them until they either die or sell them their cars. What kind of premise for a book is that? It certainly is not about the love of old cars, or archeology, it is about greed. The self-indulgent need to acquire something others have and make money from it. Perhaps the romance of aged auto hunting is old school, but those are the kind of folks that stored the cars in the first place. Save your money.
