The Latest On Our Bookshelf
In this digital world we all live in it is still one of life’s pleasures to curl up with a good book on the couch on a rainy Saturday afternoon. Of course, for us Mustang fanatics we’re much more into history and “how-to” books than the latest from Oprah’s Book Club. Books that tell the inside story on our favorite car or car person, or perhaps show us how to upgrade our Mustang, are what we’re really into. I’m sure like us you have a whole “research library” of Mustang books dating back decades.
Today we received the latest from former Mustang Monthly editor and Mustang Hall of Famer Donald Farr. Farr has been writing about Mustangs for over 40 years, and we’re betting you already have some of his much sought-after titles on your bookshelf now. We certainly do! Working with Motorbooks, the same publisher of his extremely popular Mustang 50 Years book (now revised and retitled as Ford Mustang: America’s Original Pony Car) and others Farr has produced over the years, his latest is for sale now. We couldn’t wait to dig into it. For those that dig Mustangs but possibly might not know the whole backstory, Motorbooks’ new Speed Read series is the perfect way to get to know the Mustang’s history in a fun and entertaining way with bright illustrations and light, descriptive text accompanied by fun facts, historical tidbits, and numerical facts. It is a nice read that covers all generations of Mustangs, including Shelby, Roush, special editions, and more. You’ll enjoy facts and backstories on key Mustang figures throughout production and racing history, as well as design, technology info, and so much more. You can’t go wrong adding this book to your shelf, no matter what “level” of Mustang enthusiast you are.
Speed Read Mustang is available now through the Motorbooks website at quartoknows.com/motorbooks or your favorite book retailer. Add it to your collection today!
