That same year he became a charter member of the Columbia Timing Association (CTA) and the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). In addition to the ’Fifties Flashbacks column that he has written for Rod Action for 16 years, he’s published some 300 articles and features in Street Rodder, Rodder’s Digest, Rod Action, Popular Cars, Custom Car, American Rodder, Collector Car, Old Cars Weekly, Hot Rod & Custom (England) and others.

Absolutely right, mainly because from book you can understand everything! From your country until finally foreign or abroad you will end up known. About simple thing until wonderful thing you are able to know that.

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.

Over a decade in research and compiling materials, the author has collected many unique photos of early pre-war hot rodding. This book is about his adventure (as I see it), written in the first person, of his journey to southern California to search out the people in his black and white photographs, meeting the subjects in person, and engaging them in conversations about the story behind the photographs, and first person narratives of a period on which there is relatively little record. Lots of material, characters, and photographs you will not find anywhere else, most (all?) of which pre-dates the vast majority of the early, early hot rod publications, catalogs, speed shops, etc. If this is as much your thing as it is mine, you need to own this book. Maybe my favorite hot rodding book of all time.

Drake does a great job and really nails it in this book. Its one of my all time favorite reads! Tons of information, and has been a helpful source for me in my personal quest for early hot rodding info and the men who made history! Drake gives us helping after helping of personal accounts from those who ran the dry lakes and built the machines that tattered up the lakebeds. Average Joe's doing awsome things with God-like machines built in backyards, back-alleys and the small wooden garages of America.

Dont wonder,...buy this book, and strap in,...hit the magneto switch and run her,..."Flat Out!"
