Past the Hood Ornament

Life Through the Rearview Mirror

Authored by Mike Carmichael

Growing up in Pennsylvania, author Mike Carmichael could be found either at the library or “out tearing up a back road somewhere.” That love of both books and cars is borne out in the pages of his debut book, Past The Hood Ornament: Life Through The Rearview Mirror.

In the tradition of story tellers like Jean Shephard, Carmichael's tales are fueled by small town life, enduring friendship, and a lifetime love of cars. Whether he's sharing the adventures of boyhood with his best friend Billy or musing on the trials and tribulations of adulthood, Carmichael’s reminiscences are sure to warm the hearts of both car enthusiasts and readers of all ages who enjoy a nostalgic tale told well.
