Alan Mayes and I first met at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. He was autographing copies of his newest book, OLD SCHOOL HOT RODS, and I was signing ROCKIN' DOWN THE HIGHWAY. We instantly found each other to be kindred spirits.
Alan also is managing editor of Ol' Skool Rodz, the fine bi-monthly magazine about all things rod and custom. He wrote a splendid review of ROCKIN' in the latest issue, #21 (May, '07).
Here's his first para:
"Amazing. It's amazing that someone didn't do this book before now. The connection is so obvious; the shared subjects are so cool. And what could be cooler than cars and rock & roll?"
Ol' Skool Rodz is such a good read, replete with mouth-watering photos of babes and rides, that I just have to commend it everyone--along with its companion mag, DeLuxe Car Kulture.
Wop Bop a Loo Bop!!
