Cool Jim Butcher replaced by a Chilton’s manual in a Dana Stabenow book

Quoted from Whisper to the Blood by Dana Stabenow.

(16 year old Johnny just got his driver's license and a 1981 Ford pickup)

Today they were looking at the engine, a superfluous activity because in operation the pickup sounded like a contented tiger. Kate had had Rachel in Anchorage send up a Chilton’s manual for Ford pickups from 1965 to 1986, which had immediately replaced Jim Butcher as Johnny’s preferred recreational reading.
