And thus were born the Middletown Pacemakers in 1951.

The Pacemakers brought southern Ohio its first reliability runs (1952), custom auto shows (1954), and drag racing competitions-setting national records (1958, '63, '64) and winning national championships (1963, '64, '65). When the hot rodders were not busy upgrading their drive train for more horsepower or "chopping" and "channeling" for improved performance, they could often be seen on the streets of Middletown feeding expired parking meters or rescuing motorists whose cars had broken down or run out of gas. By 1966, as was the fate of so many hot rod clubs, the mass production of Detroit muscle cars ushered the Pacemakers to fold.

I had heard of this club from some older guys I've hung out with. I'd heard about their show at the amusement park from older guys in Ohio I car show with sometimes. When I found out about the book I had to have it. I gotta say it was worth every penny I paid for it. The history is well documented but at the same time it's entertaining. I'm sure there are parts that would bore a non-gearhead but I liked the story. Having been in a car club the majority of my life I can relate to alot of the stories in this book. Times change, but somethings stay the same. After reading this book you'll see that while the club is based on cars, the heart of the Pacemakers were the people.

I have been a member of one car club or another for the past 52 years. Enjoyment of the automotive hobby is enhanced by the comradery provided by membership in a club. Ron Roberson's book provides both an early history of the growing hot rod hobby, and also illustrates the fun of hanging out with a tight knit group of like minded car guys. It is well written and packed with the details of the hot rod lifestyle.

Good look and read about the Midwestern contribution to drag and track racing. Many people think all things happened on the left coast and forgetting what went on in the Midwest.

Great book covering a local area car club and it's members, vehicles and drag racing exploits in the early days. I grew up in Hamilton, OH and remember Lovelace Radiator and knew some of the names referenced in the book. A great nostalgic look back. Very enjoyable and wish I had found it sooner!

VERY NICE BOOK EXCEPT THE INVENTORY LABEL ON THE BOOK WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO REMOVE.
THERE ARE LABELS WITH REMOVEABLE ADHESIVE FOR THESE TYPES OF APPLICATIONS.

book arrived quickly. good quality. as advertised. quick read.

This book has limited interest. Unless you are interested in car culture, this is probably of little interest
When I first started reading this book, I wasn't so sure that it would hold my interest... well it did! In addition to the history of "The Pacemakers"Car Club, the author also details a lot of hot rodding and drag strip history.

The early years of organized Drag Racing Stock Car Racing , NASCAR etc, are all part of this book...all in all, it's a Great Read!
