[Read by Greg Itzen]
A wise, funny, and captivating ode to the classic automobile. A brilliant blend of 'Shop Class as Soulcraft' and 'The Orchid Thief', Earl Swift's wise, funny, and captivating'' Auto Biography'' follows an outlaw-genius auto mechanic as he painstakingly attempts to restores a classic 1957 Chevy to its former glory - all while the FBI and local law enforcement close in. To Tommy Arney, the old cars at Moyock Muscle are archeological artifacts, twentieth-century fossils that represent a place and a people utterly devoted to the automobile and transformed by it. But to his rural North Carolina town, they're not history; they're junk. When Tommy acquires a rusted out wreck of an old Chevy and promises to return it to a shiny, chromed work of American art, he sees one last chance to salvage his respect, keep himself out of jail, and save his business. But for this folk hero who is often on the wrong side of the law, the odds of success are long, especially when the FBI, local authorities, and the bank are closing in. Written for motor heads and automotive novices alike, ''Auto Biography'' interweaves this improbable hero's journey with the story of one iconic car to chart the rise, fall, and rebirth of the American Dream. This wise, charming, and heartbreaking true story is an indelible portrait of a man, a machine, and a nation on the road from a glorious past into an unknown future.
