Rare biography of the multiple holder of the Worlds Land Speed Record, Art Arfons, a mill owners son from Ohio who started out installing war surplus aircraft engines in home-build dragsters which soon set records and led to jet powere and finally several assaults on the outright recoird which he achieved during a famous duel with rival Craig Breedlove that ran for several seasons. Almost all of Art's cars were called GREEN MOSTER and the final J79 powered Version topped 600mph in 1965, when this book was written.
Arfons remains one of the all time great figures in motor sport history .
