From Mind to Metal, 2nd Edition, (2019)
Author and photographer Randy Johnson has written the definitive, authorized 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, the Falconer Dodici, and the Magic Bus.
Grubb’s work—he calls it rolling sculpture—is appreciated internationally by gear heads and lovers of Art Deco and the Streamline styles. His signature style, lap-panel-and-rivets, is instantly recognizable.
Aaron Robinson, executive editor of Car and Driver, wrote the foreword for the book.
The book is lushly illustrated with photographs, most of which are by the author.
