From Mind to Metal is the definitive book on the life and work of automotive artist Randy Grubb, who sold his first giant hot rod, the Tank Car, to Jay Leno. Grubb followed that up with a string of hits — the Indy Special, the B-702, Piss’d Off Pete, the DecoLiner, the DecoPods, the Decoson, Bob “Rocket Man” Maddox’s Pulse Jet Lakester, Tim “Frogman” Cotterill’s Rocket 3, and the Falconer Dodici: all have been appreciated internationally by gear heads, lovers of Art Deco and the Streamline styles, as well as by traditional American and European coach builders. Aaron Robinson, executive editor of Car and Driver, wrote the foreword for the book. Carolyn Pavia-Rauchman, copy chief of Car and Driver, signed on as editor.
