Found: The Lives of Interesting Cars & How They Were Discovered. A Novel.
Paperback - English

UPDATE on the UPDATE: August 27th, 2015, TOM COTTER, Author of the wonderful 'The Cobra In the Barn' series just wrote a Foreword for the book "I have it easy; I drive down country roads, find old cars, meet the owners and write the stories. Actually, the stories almost write themselves; I'm just a catalyst who types words into the computer. In FOUND, though, Greg Long has taken a much tougher path in telling the stories of lost and forgotten cars; they are all products of his fruitful mind. His ability to develop scenarios and characters, while weaving in the histories of interesting and curious cars, is amazing. Short-story after short-story that seemingly have no connection with one another, all come together in the final chapters to form a logical and pleasing conclusion. Long has done his homework, whether it's describing mechanical details of an obscure vintage Citroen to a vintage racer. Guest appearances are also made by some of the most fabled and elusive cars of all time, including Steve McQueen's Bullit Mustang and James Dean's "Little Bastard" Porsche 550 Spyder." UPDATE: July 26th, 2015: International Automotive Media Awards: It was announced last night during the Concours d'Elegance of America at St. John's, Plymouth, Michigan that my book FOUND The Lives of Interesting Cars & How They Were Discovered. A Novel. won a Silver Medal in The International Automotive Media Competition--"a program to recognize and encourage excellence in all forms of automotive media. From works published, aired, or broadcast January 1 - December 31, 2014." In a word: Psyched Now back to your regularly scheduled short book description... From meeting a young bikini clad Jane Fonda look-alike waiting in the driver's seat of your brand new '65 Shelby Cobra in Malibu, to searching for a long lost '50 Tatra Tatraplan in an overgrown blackberry bush and coming across an even more amazing discovery, FOUND - The Lives of Interesting Cars & How They Were Discovered - brings you stories of other such amazing cars as a '67 Jaguar XK-E, '71 Hemi 'Cuda, '61 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Zagato, '48 Tucker Torpedo, '57 Ferrari Testa Rossa, '53 Corvette, '74 Land Rover Series III, '63 VW Westfalia and dozens more extremely interesting cars. But what do they all have in common? Read FOUND to find out
