•   Terry Cook's first two books bring to mind an African proverb lamenting, "When an old man dies, a library burns to the ground." Cook's figurative "library" is larger than most because he lived more lives than most cats, all the while collecting the kinds of insider stories that passed among the power players of hot rodding, drag racing, publishing, and the wider aftermarket industry that they were collectively creating.
