Award-winning story about a car that once raced great races, and as things so often go, was left to rot inside an old barn. A boy discovers the racing car -- a 1955 Maserati 300S -- by peeking through a knothole, restores it with his Dad, and makes an incredible discovery Masterfully crafted story and beautiful illustrations. Quickly becoming an abiding Father-Son classic, Dwight Knowlton's masterfully written and designed little gem garnered two 2014 International Automotive Media Awards -- a God Medal for Book Design, and a Silver Medal for Writing (Fiction). Promotional literature for the book says the book 'mixes some of the best things in life: family, discovery, sports cars, working with one's hands, and a dream realized." The editor of Automotive Styles had this to say: "I nearly forgot it was a
children's book." 48 pages. C. 2013. Made with Pride in the U.S.A.
Quite scarce, and a first edition, signed by the author, would make both a beautiful gift for a son or daughter who aspires to own and maybe even race one day.
