Born and raised in the city of Detroit, author Bob Dombrowski worked for thirty-eight years as a Detroit Firefighter, retiring after achieving the title of senior chief. Along with his wife, Linda, Bob has raised three sons, and he and Linda now have five grandchildren. When not writing, Bob enjoys reading the classics, riding around in his T-Bird, and drinking his evening cocktails where his vodka martinis are legendary. Since retiring, Bob has become a snowbird, splitting his time between Michigan and Florida.
“The year that changed history…1969 was a pivotal year for America and its youth—from drag-racing greasers to pot-smoking hippies and everyone else in between,” writes Dombrowski. “This book takes you through that crazy time as a young kid from Detroit, Casmir Novak, and his friends navigate through the year’s historic events, including the Vietnam War, Woodstock, landing on the moon, the Mets World Series, and so much more. And maybe, more importantly, find out whether a Pontiac GTO can beat a Plymouth GTX in one of the many drag races across the Motor City.
“Baby boomers and millennials alike will enjoy going back to a time when life went from simple to extreme, rich with details of an era that shaped both a nation and the automotive capital of the world. So jump in, buckle up, and hang on for a great ride through America’s last days of innocence.”
