How about Carroll Smith's tune to win, engineered to win and drive to win series? These books cause you to think about car prep in a whole new way, excellent!!

The Racing & High Performance Tire, Paul Haney, TV Motorsports and SAE, 2003. Despite the title this excellent book has a lot of useful and understandable suspension, handling and setup information. Plenty of illustrations help explain the text, really useful, very practical.

I have "The Metal Fabricators Handbook" that was first published in like 1985 and it has a lot of info on fabrication in terms of doing a car. they show doing a 1 piece front end on a race car over a wooden buck and all sorts of stuff. Including roll cages.
