When Jim Pendleton sat down to write the fictional story, (based on the life of his uncle who died in WWII) he couldn’t have imaged where the road was going to lead him.


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 not knowing what the future held. After encouragement from his new found friend and landlord he is soon building an automobile to set speed records and rubbing elbows with some true legends of motor racing history. Into this heady world walked the woman that would change his life forever. As the car is built romance blooms and the world slips into a war that will touch every person on the planet.

Jim was proud to find the book had come to the attention of legendary car designer Peter Brock. Mr. Brock is well known in automotive circles primarily as the designer of the Shelby Daytona Coupe, winner of the 24 hour race at Le Mans, Daytona, Sebring, Nurburgring, and many other races in 1964 and 1965. In addition to all of his other accolades, Mr. Brock currently writes a monthly column in Classic Motorsports magazine. His column in the July 2016 issue is entitled "The Special".
