Blackhawk Automobile Museum President Don Williams, a former Classic Industries slot car company employee in his younger days, has agreed not only to provide never-published information about the famous company, but also to write part of the new book's introduction.

The book, "Electric Dreams", will present an extensive illustrated history of the hobby from its beginning to the end of the "classic era". Written after long research and a period of separating facts from fiction, it is scheduled to go to print in the third quarter of 2013 and will be available at many specialist libraries.
 
The Blackhawk, located in Danville, CA, is one of the most celebrated classic automobiles museums in the world and has one of the finest rotating display of quite amazing cars and artifacts, from the beginning of the 20th century to the classic days of the 1960s. Its association with the Smithsonian Institution means that it is effectively the repository of American fine automobiles collected by the Smithsonian.
