They called him Pop. The
Floyd "Pop" Dreyer Story
by Mike Dreyer
Out of his love for his grandfather, Mike Dreyer wrote
this biography on Floyd "Pop" Dreyer. He researched
to see if the stories about his grandfather were true or just
exaggerations. He found out many stories were understated.
Pop went from one of the nation's top motorcycle riders
in the 1920s and some of his records still have not been broken;
he then went on to be one of the leading race car builders from
the 1930s into the 1950s and led the way in kit car building.
Many of his racing innovations are still being used today. He
was also a race car owner and his drivers won national championships.
He had a "Whos Who" list of race car drivers driving
for his team car.
Later in life he became a successful businessman and
was on the the first in the United States to sell Honda motorcycles.
He was never satisfied with stock equipment so he custom built
aerodynamic flairings for motorcycles and was the first to use
fiberglass in building sidecars for motorcycles.
Out of all his hardships of life, Floyd was able to
overcome and triumph not only on the race track but in life.
You will admire his spirit for life. This is one of the best
books on the market.
