CarTech’s James Garner’s Motoring Life

A Peek Between the Covers 

Many know James Garner as Jim Rockford from The Rockford Files, one of the most popular private-eye series of all time. What many don’t know is that James Garner was a “car guy” long before he starred in that role, and his patented J turn was a piece of cake for the lifelong racer and hobbyist.
