Neil Peart's New Coffee Table Book Silver Surfers Announced
It was last month when we first learned that Neil Peart's classic car collection, what he affectionally referred to as the Silver Surfers, would be going up for auction next month during Gooding & Company's 17th annual Pebble Beach Auctions. Given Neil's passion for his collection, it's not surprising to hear that he was actually working on a coffee table book that focused on his prized automobiles.
The news comes from this Rush.Com announcement:
Neil’s love of classic cars was a lifelong passion, and prior to his passing, he was extremely proud to have completed his final book titled, “Silver Surfers.” The following passage from his first coffee table book explains, in his own words, how the collection name came about:We'll have more news on this special release as it becomes available.
“The title Silver Surfers for my collection of cars occurred to me while driving my DB5 up and down the Pacific Ocean. Because it felt right to me, I guess – the idea that I was just one of the wave riders….
In search of natural peace, I often drove out that way and up in to the Santa Monica Mountains. Out past Malibu to Ventura County, I’d weave along barren ridges of rock and vegetation, the ocean always on one big side. The waves were slow and gentle, or churned out a powerful, rolling rhythm…”
We are happy that his wish to see this book published will be fulfilled, with a release date to be announced. This will certainly be a loving homage to the man and one of his true passions.
