Bobby Allison  A Racer's Racer (Author Signed, Allison), Allison, Bobby & Tim Packman
2 Allison, Bobby & Tim Packman Bobby Allison A Racer's Racer (Author Signed, Allison)
Sports Publishing LLC 2003 1582617236 / 9781582617237 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Signed by Bobby Allison. CD is unopened like new. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful rare collectors grade copy of this book. When traveling amongst the racing circles of drivers and fans alike, the mere mention of Bobby Allison causes excitement. And, rightfully so, too. He's not only one of NASCAR's 50 Greatest Drivers, the 1983 Winston Cup Series champion and tied (so they say) for third on the all-time win list at 84 victories--he is a true legend of the sport. His accomplishments on the track are still heralded and referred to as reference points in many record books. Bobby is a self-made legend--not much ever was handed to him that he didn't earn through talent and determination. Few will doubt or offer debate that, too. He has so many stories to tell that sharing them at only racing banquets, among friends and the fornutate fans who happen to run into him just doesn't seem fair. This book is a collection of his favorite stories and happenings that occurred during his illustrious career. And, the best part about all these stories is they are all told in his own words. When Bobby ! Allison tells a story, people stop and listen. Some of Bobby Allison's favorite stories of his life and times - on and off the various tracks he thrilled so many fans - is now available for you to enjoy. If you're looking for a smile or laugh from a true racing legend, then this book is for you. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 200 pages; Signed by Biographee

Signed by Author. Dr. Cameron Talbot has invented a breakthrough technology to defend against cruise missiles. But she needs support from skeptical company officers, funding from a reluctant Congress, and help from the White House to develop her life-saving project. Lt. Col. Hunt Daniels, detailed from the Pentagon to the White House National Security Council to investigate Dr. Talbots work, sees the potential of the invention. The fact that hes attracted to the brilliant scientist adds one more dimension to his interest in her work. But disaster is brewing overseas as militants in the disputed Kashmir region of India steal a series of missiles from sympathizers in the Pakistani military and launch one against India. At the same time, they send one of their agents to Washington, D.C., to steal Dr. Talbots technology so they can protect themselves when their enemies retaliate. The scientist and the NSC staffer find themselves enmeshed in terrorist plots and political wrangling at the highest levels. With scenes in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Capitol Hill, Georgetown restaurants, and Washington dinner parties, as well as action in Kashmir, New Delhi, and at the Taj Mahal, the tension and intrigue escalate until two nuclear-armed countries stand at the brink of war.; 1.2 x 9.4 x 6.3 Inches; 336 pages; Signed by Author
