What I tried to accomplish
I tried to provide unseen photographs and commentary from those who were there and I believe that I achieved my goal. Jim Hall liked it, he wrote the forward.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent photos in an easy to read format 31 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Excellent photos combines with an easy to read text. This book provides a good background and is a must for any Can Am or Jim Hall fan. If you can only have one Chaparral book Falconer/Nye version is preferred

5.0 out of 5 stars A PERSONAL ACCOUNT OF HISTORY OF THE MARQUE 13 May 2003
By "burks74" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Being a child of the sixties and growing up as a fan of sports car racing during that era, this book truly brings the personal side of Jim Hall and his Chaparrals to the fore-front. Jim Freidman does an exceptional job in his writing as well as candid photography of the racing team during that glorious period. With quotes from Hap Sharp, Phil Hill, Roger Penske, as well as scores of other great drivers, the reader becomes a part of racing history we will never see again.
Thank you Jim Hall for sharing your memories!
5.0 out of 5 stars Chaparral Can-Am and Prototype Race Cars 10 Dec 2011
By Darrell G Molnar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This a really informative book. Even though it is centered around pictures, the captions are very informative. The pictures are excellent and great references for mechanical details of the various Chaparral models that were almost always hidden from prying eyes and cameras at racing events. The pictures together with the captions give a very detailed history of Jim Hall and his cars. From the captions I was able to get enough clues to track down Jim Hall's background in the oilfield on the internet; he was always referred to as a millionaire Texas oilman. I give this book a Strong Recommendation.
