The Special

A call from a stranger leads me on a journey I could never have imagined.  The caller said he had my uncle's car.  How could this be?  My uncle died in World War II.  After some questioning, I realized I had the opportunity of a lifetime.  An opportunity to learn about the uncle I had heard stories of my entire life, an uncle who died before I was born, a man I had always wanted to know.  I was being given the remains of a car that had been built by this uncle and those he had been close to in his final years.  The real treasure was the bond I formed with a man and the incredible story he told.  The story of my uncle, the building of the car, and the people they both loved. 

The Special is a fact based novel; the story of family, love, and trust in the face of worldwide catastrophe.  In 1941 Billy Pendleton hitch-hiked to California to seek his fortune; he had no idea what the future would bring. After encouragement from his new found friend and landlord, he is soon building an automobile to set speed records, and rubbing elbows with some of the legends of motor racing history.  Into this heady world walked the woman who would change his life forever.  As the car is built, romance blooms and the world slips into a war that would touch every person on the planet
