I'm looking for a book I read in the '60s or '70s from the library (which means it could have been MUCH older). It was written by an established author (AFAIK) and had the following plot line:
- Two friends create rocket ship in their back yard
- They both have the hots for the same girl
- They tour the solar system with the rocket, having many adventures
- At the end, turns out they really have the hots for each other

I've been looking for this book for the last few years with no luck. Anyone have any ideas?

That sounds like Harry Harrison's 'Star Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers' (http://www.amazon.com/Smashers-Galaxy-Rangers-Harry-Harrison/dp/1932100830).

That sounds right; I'll take a look. Thanks! (Been looking for that one for years!)
