If you like to keep your horsepower as tight as a CIA secret, check out Street Sleepers. - --Old Cars Weekly, February 9, 2012

Reseña del editor:

Street racing is now regarded as a highly illicit and dangerous activity, but this was not always the case. For as long as there have been cars, there's been racing, and a lot of acceleration contests took place on public roads. The drivers were not only competing for pride, but typically there was some kind of cash wager involved. Beginning in the 50s it became popular for some enterprising street racers to disguise or hide the true potential hidden within their cars. Taken to its extreme, a very fast car could appear completely unmodified. Such cars were called Sleepers, since their appearance would lull you to sleep, until they passed you at full speed. The art of building a successful sleeper has varied over the decades as styles and times have changed. One fact that remains constant is that the car's appearance belies its performance potential. In Street Sleepers, the secrets are exposed and the owners and builders of some of America's quickest street machines share their deceptive art. Outstanding photography and in-depth owner interviews tell the tale, and even engine specifications and quarter-mile track times are shared. There was a time when such things were well-guarded secrets, but this book truly exposes all the tricks. For anyone who's ever dream't of building a great sleeper, or has been relieved of some cash by betting against one, this book is a must-have. Countless tales have been told about some secret speed trick or hidden power in an otherwise sedate-looking vehicle, but Street Sleepers is lined with true stories of real cars that live up to the grand hot rodder's tradition of deceptively fast cars. A true exposé of incredibly fast cars that look tired, weak, or just plain slow. No book has ever revealed the secrets of these underground street racers. Many different styles, colours, and budgets are represented, from high-dollar money makers to budget-built hustlers.
