This book was in Japanese to me. My 19 year old son went through this book and enlightened me. This book gets a 4 out of 5 stars because it spells out everything. Once i grasped the concept I got the entore book. ( )

Excellent book - I will admit that I am partial since this is also a local legend for me. Great book! ( )

This book will appeal to a few different groups of people. Those of you who grew up in southwestern Pennsylvania from the ‘40’s to the ‘80’s will remember the Yenko dealerships and enjoy a trip down memory lane. Car enthusiast will enjoy all of the major cars that Yenko produced like the Yekno Stinger. And the third group would be road racing fans, as Don Yenko was an accomplished road racer, posting top 5s in 24 hours of Daytona and Le Mans and a few championships. ( )

CarTech Books does it again, this time with the story of Don Yenko, the man behind the special edition Chevrolet muscle cars. From his fathers’ immigration to the US to his passing, this authorized history of Don Yenko covers all the history he made with his special muscle cars and the years it took to get there.
Yenko: The Man, The Machines, The Legend by Bob McClurg covers in amazing detail the life of Don Yenko. The in depth interviews with family, friends, co-workers, business associates help to paint a complete picture of the life of Don Yenko.
The book is loaded with pictures of Don Yenko’s life. From his childhood to dealership days, to the muscle cars, racing history and collectable memorabilia, the pictures give life to written words of his history. Many of the family photos have never been in print – until now.
If you remember the Chevrolet muscle cars as I do – Camaro, Chevelle, Nova, and even the Vega – you will want to read this to learn more about the man behind the Chevy muscle – Don Yenko.

I did receive a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. ( )

I'm not quite the audience for this book. It's an intimate and folksy biography aimed at people who are already familiar with Don Yenko's work and who want to know more about his life, not a book for someone who's unfamiliar with Yenko and his importance in the automotive world. For someone who's already interested in Yenko's cars, though, this would be a nice addition to the library; there's many fun anecdotes about his family and plenty of good photographs of his cars. ( )
