Get Your Ed Wallace Backside of American History Here
2023 August 22

Over the past few weeks, Wheels’ has aired several callers asking where they can get copies of Ed Wallace’s Backside of American History (BOAH). In one case, Wallace agreed to e-mail a copy to the caller. In all other cases, the caller got a refusal.

Ed Wallace's Backside of American History (Volumes I and II)

As such, it seems appropriate to raise the visibility of a service that Outside Automotive offers, which is to provide copies of BOAH (volumes one & two).

Squeals with Ed Wallace: Get Your Backside of American History Here. 

Outside Automotive executes Wallace’s original distribution process. E-mail Outside Automotive with a BOAH request and links to both BOAH volumes will be e-mailed to you within a few days. The e-mailed links are to PDF files hosted on the Outside Automotive server, not a third party.

E-Mail Outside Automotive 

Nothing will be done with the e-mail addresses used for these requests, with one exception. If Ed Wallace requests the list of e-mail addresses to which his books were sent, the list will be given to him.   As such, use of an anonymous e-mail account is encouraged. An alert will be sent to all on the list that their e-mail address has been shared, if and when Wallace requests them.

For those concerned about the propriety of this redistribution of BOAH, the following text is from the title page of BOAH Volume One:

Backside of American History (Volume One):
