Flat Out is a compilation of exciting stories of early day hot rodders who abandoned the streets of Los Angeles for the dry lake beds of Southern California, where they could virtually put the pedal to the metal, in their quest for all out speed. The author, Albert Drake, a Professor Emeritus at Michigan State University, and hot rodder for most of his life, spent untold hours, weeks and years, gathering the information and photographs that make up this fantastic book. Proof that he is one of us lies in the fact he still drives a fine ’29 A-V8 roadster, a car he built many years ago.
