Chopped, louvered and loud, all the hot rods that come from the Rolling Bones’ stable have an evil attitude that’s hard to forget. These weathered early Fords have the competition look of yesteryear, yet they’re driven cross-country and raced at Bonneville on numerous occasions. Now, for the first time, the complete history of the Rolling Bones has been written in the brand new definitive volume: The Book of Gow.
Although the cars may be stripped down and battle-worn, this book is anything but. The 220+ page hardcover is loaded with hundreds of images of the coupes, sedans and roadsters that the Rolling Bones have built in their New York shop over the past few decades. It’s printed on heavy stock and features an unprecedented five full-size foldouts.
The Book of Gow isn’t simply jam-packed with facts, figures and technical specs—it’s filled with dozens of tall tales about how these cars came into existence. They’re told in a fun, lighthearted fashion and mixed in with original artwork from Tom Fritz, Ben McKee, Chris Piscitelli and more. Combine these with images from Peter Vincent, David Carlo and Michael Alan Ross and you have the all-encompassing story of the Rolling Bones.
