About the Author
Tom Cotter had long been involved in nearly every facet of the automotive and racing industries before writing his first book. From mechanic and auto salesman to heading the public relations department at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Cotter formed his own racing and automotive PR and marketing agency, Cotter Group. The agency represented some of the largest clients in NASCAR, IndyCar/CART, drag racing, and road racing. He has written biographies of the legendary Holman-Moody race team, Tommy Ivo and Dean Jeffries, but is best known for his series of barn find books, such as Cobra in the Barn, 50 Shades of Rust and Barn Find Road Trip. Cotter appears in the Barn Find Hunter video series, which is distributed by Hagerty. He teaches public relations at Belmont Abbey College, sits on the advisory board of McPherson College's Auto Restoration program, and is a member of the Road Racing Driver's Club (RRDC.) He lives in Davidson, North Carolina. Michael Alan Ross has carved out a career photographing the studied nuances, latest models, adrenaline-rushed raceways, and proud owners of the car world. His love of automotive design includes an encyclopedic knowledge of sculptural engineering details with a parallel appreciation for the evolution of componentry. Michael's photography is featured in Motorbooks' Barn Find Road Trip and Rockin' Garages, as well as in a wide range of editorial and advertising in the US and Europe. He lives in San Rafael, California.
Reviews
"(Cotter) spins an entertaining yarn about people met, places seen, and roads driven....all wonderfully illustrated by Ross' superb photography. Settle into your favorite chair and enjoy as they take you along, too."--Speedreaders.info
"a gem of a book...Cotter and Ross have the right approach: an epic path, the ideal vehicle, choosing to enjoy the trip, and, most of all, interacting with the people and places along the way...a fun read, and Lord knows it might inspire some to head for the horizon just to see what they can see."

--Tony Borroz, Automoblog
"This engaging, epic, well-documented trip will appeal to car aficionados, road trippers, and readers interested in travel memoirs, small towns, farming, or Americana."--Sue O'Brien, Library Journal
"Great for armchair-travel, but their storytelling and photos just might be the kick-start you need to get out there on America's roads."--Coast News
"If you want to read about the ultimate bucket list road trip or get to know the U.S. and Canada and its people, then this book is a great read. We have driven much of the same journey and found his findings and reactions to what he experienced to be spot on."

--Classic Motorsports
