Automotive History: The World of Auto Racing in Print

Volunteer Talk: Saturday, April 6, 10:30 A.M. - 11:30 A.M.

As a longtime automotive enthusiast Tom Styczynski found that books provide fascinating historical and technical perspectives on the auto industry, racing, design and personalities. This interest began with a visit to a Chicago car parts store with his father and a book purchase. The presentation will start with that first book and show how it influenced a constantly evolving personal library collection that includes everything from grease covered shop manuals to photo essays of race cars. He will also discuss book sources and the developing World of Speed library. Tom Styczynski, is a retired Lockheed Martin Senior Staff Engineer, consummate car enthusiast, and volunteer docent at the World of Speed. Tom is also part of the team documenting the Granatelli engineering information for the World of Speed Archive.
