Tim, he's great guy, and read a bit about him at the end of this post to be truly amazed at how diverse his talents are, is also a kids book author. Sharing his humor and enjoyment of concept car designs with kids, he's made up 36 hot rod rides/ goofy fun car ideas that you've heard of perhaps, but not seen on paper.
You've heard of a snot rocket, and a gumballer... but not like the above!
In categories that range from Big Boomers, ElecTricks, HugeSters, Tiny Racers, Teeny Rockets, World Travelers and Yum Sters... these concepts are fun and entertaining... even topical to the "Green" "Solar" and "Electric" movements
Kids and adults like me will get a kick out of this book, but of course teens are going through a phase where they probably can't admit the book has cute stuff in it. Oh well. It's available at Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1933492813/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=1933492813&linkCode=as2&tag=starwarscust-20 (Check out the reviews here, all positive!)
