Vol One: Covering 67 Triumphant years, this first of two volumes- the second picks up the story in 1968 and continues through 200- conveys, as author Leo Levine puts it, "the sound and the fury, the speed and the drama" of racing itself while spotlighting Ford's groundbreaking accomplishments. Ford: The Dust and The Glory feature the stories- and numerous photographs- of the great races, the great cars, and the legendary personalities (both famous drivers and those "behind the scenes") associated with Ford and its great competitors of the era. In addition to the dramatic moments of glory and tragedy, Levine chronicles the day-to-day grind behind those moments- the frantic but disciplined hours at the drawing board, in the workshops, on the proving grounds, and in the pits.
Vol Two: With an emphasis on Fords' groundbreaking accomplishments, this volume of The Dust and The Glory also serves as a comprehensive history of international racing since 1968. Thus, in addition to the stories of the drivers closely associated with Ford- Cale Yarborough, Dale Jarrett, Mario Andretti, Bob Glidden, and Bill Elliot, to name a few- the book also provides information on the careers of superstars such as Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt, and Jeff Gordon. The results of different racing circuits' major events and their year-end rankings are provided for each year covered by the book. But this book is more than a series of dates and facts about racers and their victories. The ideas, the decisions, the foresight- and in some cases, the mistakes- of car owners, engineers, sponsors, and corporate management are also a large part of the story.
This two-volume set is in very good condition with very minor signs of wear and age and is just a must-have for any motoring enthusiast!
