When it’s quiet on our website, we’re usually busy somewhere else. This year, as you’ll see in the near future, has been a year for restorations and brand-new creations. But that story is for the future. Today’s story is about “books.”
Our first book was released in 2012 to coincide with the appearance of our 1947 Kurtis-Omohundro Comet at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’elegance. It was our first book on bringing to bear what we do best – research and documentation. Then, presenting it in a book that can be viewed on a computer, a table, phone or be printed in full size (13 inches wide, 11 inches tall).
In a similar fashion, our second book was released to coincide with the appearance of our 1950 Leo Lyons Custom Mercury at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
A lot happened between 2015 and 2020 when our third book was released. This one covered the history of the 1952 Voodoo Gardner:
But we’ve been at this now documenting Undiscovered Classic cars for going on twenty years. And in talking with our closest friends and supporters, it’s time to take the knowledge base we’ve grown and turn it into “books.” Not just a few but – quite a few. Books on individual cars like the ones above will always be fun to share. But soon we’ll be moving onto books that cover “marques” such as Glasspar, Victress, Allied and more. In fact, two additional authors have joined me and we are working on the details and organization to make these books the best that they can be.
For now, to pick up the pace we’ve released three books this year:
- One on “Wedge Car Design” that features the Cannara car we are restoring
- Another book on the history and details of the Johnny Dark Movie starring Tony Curtis and Piper Laurie
- And the third book on the history of the black Woodill Wildfire that appeared in the movie “Johnny Dark”
Each of the covers of these books are shown below:

At this time, you can read our books online at no cost. They are easily viewable on a phone, tablet, or computer screen. Printed copies of the books are available at a cost for those of you who want a copy of the book for a library. To view our books online and additional information, click on the link below:
We are currently working on more books and hope to release our next one on the 1953 Maverick Sportster later this year. So stay tuned gang, lots of new things happening both on the web and across the country. Should be a fun year…
Hope you enjoyed the story, and remember…
The adventure continues here at Undiscovered Classics.
