The Silver Ghost. A Supernatural Car is a personal recollection of the car restoration business from its infancy, working on exciting ‘barn finds’ of forgotten vehicles that were often bought for scrap value and later surprised by commanding enormous sums at auction. The author introduces the reader to the numerous larger-than-life personalities, too, he has met along the way, and the adventures they brought in their wake –bizarre, exotic, frequently amusing, and occasionally life-threatening. Many rarely-seen and unpublished pictures are included, spanning the century of a car whose engineering brilliance made the experience of driving truly ‘supernatural’.
