The Mudge Pond Express book. This is a book he wrote in 1975, before his career was fully wrapped up. He's definitely an anomaly for the time in that he graduated college with a fine art degree, and was a painter in addition to a racer. He's also quite articulate in describing what it's like in a race car.

Comments to eBook The Mudge Pond express
Morlurne
This is a hard one, it was published in 1976 and I think my husband has wanted to read it since 1990. However, the printing run was small and it was hard to find at a price I was willing to pay. I finally lucked out and found a copy. His review was it was so so. I think by 2015 it had been eclipsed by "time and tide".

I have read this book several times through the years and have enjoyed it each time. Sam Posey has such a nice style of writing and his years in racing co-inside with the end of a great era in racing. Trans Am, F5000 and non-ground effects Indy. It is as much a story book as it is a technical, behind the scenes, engineering/racing book. Sam Posey has always been the gentleman and this book shows he also had spirit. A great read.

Sam Posey is that rare combination of world-class racing driver, sports announcer, and exceptional writer. I first saw Sam Posey race in the 1970 Trans-Am race at Lime Rock, CN and first read this book when it was initially published. I lost that copy and bought another one more recently. It is a wonderful book and worth every penny. This is a true page turner. I would also recommend his book "Playing with Trains." Sam Posey is also, maybe most importantly, a true gentleman.

Must have book for the Sam Posey fan.

Growing up in New England Sam Posey was the local hero, I always wanted to read a copy of his book. The book is a easy read and gives a true picture on the life of a race driver in the 60's and 70's. I recommend this book to any auto racing enthusiast.

Have you ever wondered what a career in automobile racing might be like? Have you ever watched a grand prix or Indy race and thought what it must feel like? Ride along with Posey as he takes you along and tells you his thoughts along the way from everything like thundering down the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans to hurtling, end-over-end in a terrible crash. This book is well presented in a matter-of-fact and conversational way that lets you feel that this is an ordinary guy who wanted more than anything to race. It covers his career from childhood interests through his racing with BMW in 1975 and includes runs through the famous Trans Am years in Pony Cars, Formula 5000 against David Hobbs, early years in Can Am, driving Ferraris at LeMans for Chinetti and NART, and more. This book held my interest yet was easy to read. Although the chronological order bounces somewhat making some parts a little confusing, it is overcome by some interesting stories by an insider with a talent to communicate. As for getting a copy I read mine from the public library which seems to only have older, out of print books.
"A VERY FINE BIOGRAPHY of a race car driver.....
Posey quickly conveys the frustrations and complexities of this most expensive and dangerous of all aports.....
Especially appealing is his disarming candor.....
The man has charm and talent....."
