Item description for Gasser Wars: Drag Racing's Street Classes: 1955-1968 by Larry Davis...

CarTech s bestseller, Gasser Wars, has been re-released in a new softbound format at a reduced price.
In the late 1950s, thousands of street legal hot rods participated in organized drag races across the country they ran in three major classes: Gas, Modified Production, and Modified Sports. As the racers got more serious, these cars were street legal in appearance only. Yeah, they had headlights, taillights, and interiors, but they were full-on race cars, with huge blown Hemi engines, wide racing slicks, and raised front suspensions.
Racers soon discovered that small, lightweight cars were the fastest, and the classic Gasser was born. Fans swarmed to watch big-names like Stone, Woods & Cook, Ohio George Montgomery, Big John Mazmanian, and others. These were among the most popular and exciting racers of the era many of the top original cars have been restored and are now valuable museum pieces, and the Gasser look is popular again among hot rodders.
Author Larry Davis combined his own image archive with many rare, never-published images from racers, fans, and track photographers all over the country. He also did extensive research and interviews with former drag racers. The result is a comprehensive, entertaining, and nostalgic look at drag racing history.

This book is not the original size in inches,but my friend who received it as a gift can't put it down and we have had many conversations about racing on the strips of the day.Totally satisfied and recommend this volume.Not all photos,plenty of text and racing stats.
Another winner from Larry Davis  May 27, 2008
It's a detailed, generously illustrated history of this period and these cars. Nice blend of technical information, anecdotes, and event results.
