Cruisin' Along


Today is the last day of 2008!  One last chance to peruse the offerings of the Friends of Reston Regional Library on Amazon1  and Amazon2. You never know what you might find there; we receive some truly interesting donations! Try to fathom the connection between these books!

Another von Daniken book starts the line-up. The Gods From Outer Space: The War of the Chariots is part of a series culled from his major works. A paperback, this rare copy has a manufacturing flaw in which the cover was cut slightly shorter than several of the pages. Its condition appears to be little used, and due to rarity, it is offered at Amazon1 for $75.

If you have a young man in your life who loves all things mechanical and motor-driven, but dislikes reading, this is the perfect book to get him to understand the value of reading. How to Build A Hot Tuner Car is a great how-to book by Scott Smith. It covers everything from the budget to parts to the show floor.  A paperback, at $15 this is a great deal on Amazon1. It has a slight bump at the lower right hand front corner -- but by the time your young man is finished with it, it will be covered in motor grease anyway, right?

Necessity may dictate more 'at-home' car repairs in 2009 so why not repair and upgrade at the same time? The modifications detailed in this book, Honda Engine Swaps, can turn a regular street car into an enhanced performance machine worthy of fellow enthusiasts' admiration. Described as a 'must-have' book for Honda lovers, this is $18 at Amazon1 .
