VIDEO: More classic cars in action. PLUS: another great review by a car lover!

At the bottom of this post, you will find links to more classic cars, including 1 1904 Oldsmobile and a 1912 Packard, running at the launch party for CAR CRAZY. Fun stuff!

First though, a glowing endorsement from Just a Car Guy, aka Jesse Bowers, who writes, in part that CAR CRAZY “Does the best job of teaching you everything about the 1st decade of American car-making (1900 – 1910) that I think we are ever likely to get. If you want to learn how the Ford, Olds, Reo, Chevrolet, Buick and GM got started, this book is indispensable. It’s really that good.”


And here are the videos -- quick views, definitely worth the quick clicks!

  1. For some reason I was unable to access your email. I saw you on C-span today and I enjoyed your comments on your book Car Crazy. When you commented on the environmental impact of the car I was disappointed you did not talk about the environmental problem it solved. I was wondering if during your research you found any information concerning the pollution caused by horses prior to the automobile and what a Godsend some felt the car was. In New York it is estimated that just prior to the advent of the car, over 3 million pounds of manure was being generated daily. Also dead horses were a huge problem. Here is a link:
    I thought this might be an interesting topic for a book or might add to people's understanding during one of your Q&A's.
