Wesley Richards | 6 comments Hi, looking for info about an adolescent book series about cars / hot rods.

The books were at my school library in the mid 80's , and I believe they were older books --- most likely published in the 60's or 70's (the school was first opened in 1976 if that helps)

The only plot detail i can remember is about a car entered into a demolition derby. The car is bright yellow, and given the name "the Yellow jacket" .

Looking for info on any books of this sort (adolescent involving hot rods/cars)

Thanks ! Wes
