Product description

Review

"a 'must-have' for all drag racing devotees… utterly fascinating."

(Richard Coney Classic American)

From the Inside Flap

In 1961, Tommy Ivo had the world in the palm of his hand. At 25, he was not only a star of television and screen, but a successful touring drag racer as well. Then his producers told him he had to quit racing. Ivo quit Hollywood instead. Here is the story of "TV" Tommy's incredible life and racing career, related by Ivo to award-winning automotive journalist Tom Cotter and profusely illustrated with images from Ivo's own archives. Follow the former child star as he evolves from teenage hot rodder to the world's most ambitious drag racer, building his own cars in the garage behind his Burbank home and barnstorming the nation. In addition to profiling Ivo's 31 iconic cars--including his trendsetting '23 T-bucket, his mind-bending twin- and four-engine dragsters, and the Funny Cars in which he took his leave from the racing stage--Cotter relates how Ivo, ever the showman, pioneered the techniques that today's race promoters take for granted. Throughout, the tales behind Ivo's career and cars are generously complemented with commentary from such racing luminaries as Don Garlits, Don Prudhomme, and Shirley Muldowney. Tommy Ivo's impact on the sport cannot be understated. Here, finally, is the definitive biography of one of drag racing's most irrepressible characters.
