The Sports Car Engine by Floyd Clymer 1949 1951
The Floyd Clymer series of car books should be on every car-buff's bookshelf. He had his name on a whole progression of subjects, from a series of thumbnail description on Veteran and Antique brands both dead and thriving, and a helpful collection on gaining power for your flathead Ford, Sports Car Engines etc...
Here is the latter title, published in 1949, that isn't easy to find. It's chock full of vintage info and pictures, and it's a real nice introduction to early post-war racers. Also, a couple of pics from a later incarnation, Speed From The Sports Car (1951).
Enjoy this sampling!
