"Truck: On Rebuilding a Worn-Out Pickup and Other Post-Technological Adventures," by John Jerome. John Jerome

You'll have fun reading author John Jerome's sometimes discouraging, but often hilarious, journey to rebuild his old Dodge pickup up. The book's as much about the ups and downs of restoration as it is a look at the tips and techniques used to get the job done -- but those are included. It's a good read.
