Cannonball!: World's Greatest Outlaw Road Race Our review: The most entertaining car book I've ever read!
The history of the real underground Cannonball races that took place in the
1970s. My favorite story was the of two Jaguar XJS drivers who ran the
race with a medical cooler containing two pig eyes. When pulled over, they would open
the cooler and say, "Officer, we're rushing to save a child's sight."
Great fun! Written by Car and Driver editor Brock Yates, the creator of
the Cannonball. Price: $17.47 9 ½ x
