This book is a biography of my Dad, Bill Waddill who was a hot rodder his entire life. It includes the history of his hot rod club called the Genesee Gear Grinders from Flint, Michigan. Waddill was the first man from east of the Mississippi to set a Bonneville land speed record in 1952. He also set several national drag racing records. He attended many early car shows, including the first Autorama in Detroit in 1953 and consistently won Best Engineered and top honors in his classes. He counted Mickey Thompson, Wally Parks and Roger Huntington among his many racing friends.
