Junkyard Jewels Diamonds In The Rust (Book) AUD $34.95

America's love affair with the automobile began when the first Model T rolled off the assembly line in 1908.  Since then, millions of cars have been introduced and revered, each one dressed in brilliant chrome and ornaments, promising a bright future of fun, speed, and reliability to it's new owner.

Today many of those same cars sleep at the end of country backroads, in ancient gas stations, and in junk' yards, rust-kissed and weathered, donning the starry pattern of shattered windshields.

It's every car lover's dream: To find that special car waiting in a junkyard or old barn, ready to be resurrected under the restorer's magic touch. Whether you wish for a 1957 Chevy Bel Air or a Ford Model T, the dream is just as exciting—and just as daunting.

Junkyard Jewels is a celebration of that dream, offering a glimpse at the junkyard dogs of legend, a colorful array of Hudsons, DeSotos, Studebakers, and Overlands.  These beauties remain nestled in what the cars' owners affectionately refer to as salvage yards—to distinguish between "junk" and "inventory," and to amend the unsa­vory reputation.

Authors Pat Kytola and Larry Kytola take you "tin-hunting" in the restorable pot of gold at the end of the junkyard rainbow.  Included are 80 color photographs casting a loving look at the bygone days of the American automobile.
