When Performance Was King: The Grand Spaulding Legacy by Mr. Norm Kraus

The corner of Grand and Spaulding Avenues in Chicago was happening in the 1960s, when the Kraus family ran one of the most notorious Dodge franchises in history.

Complete with original advertising (including the Don Gay DRAG NEWS ads of 1965), never-before-seen vintage photographs, and photos of the famous G-S cars as they exist today.

RELEASE DATE: Future release; undecided.

Flying Glass: The History of Fuel Funny Car Racing: 1965-1974

Remember the days of Jungle Jim Liberman, the Mongoose and the Snake, and match races galore? Before the advent of big money sponsors and dominating sanctioning body events, the best know stars of drag racing toured the nation in pursuit of speed. Some funny car racers were heroes, some were crazy, but all of them were showmen. Here is the essential saga of the famous and infamous, from the altered-wheelbase cars of 1965 to the fire-plagued Supernationals of 1974, just before the dawn of the Winston era. Illustrated with original photos, handouts, paperwork, and more.

RELEASE DATE: Future release; undecided.

Read about Yenko Super Cars, Baldwin-Motion, Dana, Nickey, Berger and the other companies that struck terror in the hearts of street racers nationwide. Illustrated with vintage advertising, gorgeous cars, memorabilia and much more.

RELEASE DATE: Future release; undecided.
