Sinopsis: Can-Am lasted only 8 1/2 seasons, from 1966 into 1974, but what ground-shaking, car-shaping years those were. With minimal rules and lavish prize money, the Can-Am attracted top-flight teams and superstar drivers. It also encouraged innovation, and racing's most inventive minds brought out novel and astounding ideas. Chaparral, Lola, McLaren, Porsche and Shadow are among 22 of these epic machines revisited through stunning studio photography by Peter Harholdt and vivid descriptions by Pete Lyons, long considered the dean of Can-Am journalists.
About the Author: Pete Lyons launched his career in motorsports journalism by covering the Can-Am, and he says it spoiled him forever. While he also enjoyed Formula One, long-distance sports cars, Indy cars, the Trans-Am, Formula 5000, rallying, off-road racing, and motorcycles, the Can-Am suited the lawless side of his soul. This is his third book about those epic days. Pete and wife Lorna live in Big Bear City, CA, in the service of two cats. Peter Harholdt combines his love of cars and racing with his professional talents as a photographer of fine arts for museums and collectors. From racing in the 24 Hours of Daytona to shooting for the Smithsonian, White House, and the Louvre, he is uniquely qualified to convey the technical details as well as the beauty of these cars built for speed. He has developed a portable studio that allows him to create remarkably detailed portraits of cars in any environment or locale. Peter lives in West Palm Beach, FL with his five golden retrievers and partner, Donna Tribby.
