The art of building a successful sleeper has varied over the decades as styles and times have changed. One fact that remains constant is that the car's appearance belies its performance potential. In Street Sleepers, the secrets are exposed and the owners and builders of some of America's quickest street machines share their deceptive art. Outstanding photography and in-depth owner interviews tell the tale, and even engine specifications and quarter-mile track times are shared. There was a time when such things were well-guarded secrets, but this book truly exposes all the tricks!

Contents:
● Introduction
● Definition of a Sleeper
● Finding the Right Car
● Engine Swaps
● Sneaky Horsepower
● Hook It Up
● Safety Features and Interior Details
● Drag Strip Sleepers
● Grandmas and Groceries
● Diesel Weasels
● Economics 101
● Modern Muscle
● What, This Old Thing?

For anyone who's ever dreamt of building a great sleeper, or has been relieved of some cash by betting against one, this book is a must-have. Countless tales have been told about some secret speed trick or hidden power in an otherwise sedate-looking vehicle, but Street Sleepers is lined with true stories of real cars that live up to the grand hot rodder's tradition of deceptively fast cars.
