Jaguar XJR7

“The company is technically bankrupt, and if we don’t do something positive, the banks will shut us down.”

Faced with financial oblivion in the early 1980s, Jaguar  turned to racing—and an American racing team—to turn its image around. Jaguar hired the Group 44 team of Bob Tullius to build and race a new-from-scratch sports racing car in IMSA and LeMans competition, to pursue Jaguar’s belief that a successful racing effort would give the brand a new glow.

The XJR7, the subject of the second installment of the Stance & Speed Monograph Series, was the ultimate evolution of Group 44’s V-12 Jaguar racer. With it, Jaguar and Group 44 not only took the fight to Porsche’s dominant Porsche 956s and 962s; they also created one of the most beautiful and striking race cars of the 1980s.

Gurney Eagle-Weslake F1

In 1967 Dan Gurney gained a permanent place among America’s greatest racing heroes. Driving his Gurney-Weslake Eagle, he won the Belgian Grand Prix and became the only American to win a modern-era European Grand Prix race in an American car. In doing so he defeated such legends as Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jack Brabham, and Jackie Stewart, more established teams like Ferrari and Lotus, and conquered the menacing Spa-Francorchamps circuit itself, much of which was made up of dangerous and narrow public roads that the racers traversed at speeds approaching 200 mph.

This exciting new addition to the Stance & Speed Monograph series is written by broadcasting veteran Bob Varsha, known to American racing fans as the voice of Formula One races on Speed TV for more than a decade. As always, the photography of Peter Harholdt enhances the classic beauty of the car, while Gurney himself adds a foreword in which he reflects on this remarkable car and his legendary accomplishment.

1964 Watson Sheraton Thompson Special

When this car took the checkered flag at the 1964 Indianapolis 500, it was to be the last triumph for a front-engined car in the world’s most famous race. Displayed just as it last raced, graced with lots of patina and pockmarked paint, the Sheraton Thompson Special truly represents the end of a fondly remembered era in American racing.

The fourth installment of the Stance & Speed Monograph series was written by the Speedway’s official historian, Donald Davidson, who interviewed legendary mechanic George Bignotti, chassis-bulding master A.J. Watson, and the man who created the car’s classic paint job, Dean Jeffries, to get the full story of this legendary car. Foyt adds an insightful foreword recalling that day in May and his memories of the car in which he secured the second of his record-setting four Indy 500 victories.

This series is for people who like cars, period. Each book in the Monograph Series examines one significant automobile and the incredible history that surrounds it. We’ll be covering a wide variety of cars, from road racers, to dragsters, to hot rods, to one-off coachbuilt masterpieces, to land speed record cars and more, introducing new books at regular intervals. As you add each new release to your collection you’ll create a shelf full of fascinating automobiles to which you can return again and again.

So-Cal Coupe

The So-Cal Speed Shop is legendary in hot-rodding circles, and the So-Cal Coupe is a big reason why. Built to compete in drag racing and top-speed contests, this chopped ‘34 Ford coupe, with its iconic white and red paint job, served as a rolling advertisement for So-Cal.

In the third installment of the Stance & Speed Monograph Series, author Ken Gross tells the multifaceted history of this tremendously influential car. At turns record-setting, tragic, and triumphant, the story of the So-Cal coupe exemplifies the story of hot rodding itself throughout the second half of the 20th century.

Cunningham C-4RK

In the first lap of its first race, which just happened to be the most important sports car race in the world, the C-4RK was in the lead.

A decade before Carroll Shelby took his Cobras to Europe, Briggs Cunningham brought American horsepower and know-how to the 24 Hours of LeMans, where he challenged the supremacy of the great European marques on their home soil. The C-4RK was a one-of-one streamlined coupe-a LeMans special of sorts-designed with input from one of the most famous automotive aerodynamicists of all time, Dr. Wunibald Kamm. Did the C-4RK live up to the promise embodied in its aggressive bodywork? Pick up this first installment of the Stance & Speed Monograph Series to find out…
