Sorry if it's been mentioned already. I was speaking with a guy at Hershey and when talk got around to speedsters he mentioned that he recently wrote a book on the history of Ames bodies. I put in my order at Amazon about an hour ago so no reviews yet. (Not at all expensive either.)

Thanks Jerry for posting this. I have a friend that has an Ames touring car and this will make a great Christmas present for him.
You're welcome Tom!
