been helping with that book & finding new info & some new interviews with people involved with the kk operations at all  the KK plants & I think more towards the fall now.  If anybody has some info or photos to add to the book now is the time. I have both Charlie H. & Wes E. contact info.

Picked up a copy over at Autobooks in Burbank on Saturday. Finished it today. Pretty good. Most people associate Kar Kraft with just the Boss 429, and while this book does contain an entire chapter devoted to that, Kar Kraft had quite a few irons in the fire.

The book covers from pre-Kar Kraft to them getting involved with Ford starting with the GT40. It also covers their work in Trans-Am, various and sundry prototypes, experimental cars, etc. right up to the point when Ford pulled the plug in 1970.

I liked it, but I'm biased. - Mark.
