Lance Lambert, automotive journalist, TV personality and passionate car collector, shares some of his adventures from decades of holding the honored title of “Car Guy.” From his first “car” (a combination of his sister’s tea set table and a broken wagon) to his current love of “orphan” cars (his garage menagerie includes two Studebakers and two King Midgets), Lance is a person living the life that all car lovers love. This book follows Lance’s best-selling Fenders, Fins & Friends: Confessions of a Car Guy. His newest book, Gears, Grins & Gasoline: My Wheel Life Adventures, contain 59 short stories that will bring smiles and, if the reader is not careful, a tear or two. Included is the tale of 13 year-old Lance and a friend “borrowing” a car; dangerous chases and “rumbles” with rivals; mistakes made on motorcycles; teenage girls in great cars; automotive successes and failures, and even spending time with a 1955 Chevrolet-owning ghost. It’s a great book about great cars and great people. Pour a cup of coffee and head to the garage, then sit back and enjoy the reading ride!
Lance Lambert’s Gears, Grins, & Gasoline will be available for purchase in the ACM Store and a book signing opportunity will be available immediately following the lecture.
