If you like to root for the underdog in a street race this book is for you.
February 24, 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Sneaky, fast cars, have always seemed to have more "Cool" factor than ones that have had cubic dollars spent on them while they strut their stuff. This book had some good sleepers in it from many different areas of the motorsport crowd. American Muscle, Diesel, Import / Tuner, and even Grandmas old car and Grandpas old farm truck. Although some of the material is now dated in the book, it is still a good read and kinda makes you want to go out and build something yourself to earn a little extra cash with. Not that I would EVER street race for money, but the thought was entertaining non the less..... ; )

Well done book!

This book is a well done conglomeration of sneaky cars. I was excited to see so many cars that I actually have seen in person before. Many have been on Hot Rod Power Tour and Hot Rod Drag Week. This book shows the cunning and skill of the builders, and there is a very amusing section about what makes a sleeper, and why somebody would want to do that. It was eerily accurate regarding the sleeper owner I know.
Not what I expected

I was disappointed with the writing and content. It was not the technical book I anticipated. Too many pictures.
Wonderful book full of suprising cars!

I had seen a preview of this book, and must say I was impressed! I saw the Wheel to Wheel built Nova on PowerTour in 2007, so I was not surprised in the least when it made it into this book. For those that love the innovation and sneakiness that is involved in building sleepers, you will love this book!

Kindy quirky, no rhyme or reason to cars picked, but love variety. "sleeper rating" a little gimmicky, but love the text and accompanying pictures. Entertaining, worth the purchase.
