Description

The 1960s and early 1970s were the age of raw American automotive power. Whether it was a classic Hemi ‘Cuda, Pontiac GTO, Charger, or Boss Mustang, big engines were king at local drag strips and cruises. Muscle Cars explores this era and the current models with a broad survey of classic muscle and today’s new machines. Each chapter is organized around a theme (milestones, factory racers, etc), each model getting a multi-page spread of full-color photography, performance stats, trivia, and more. Photos and stories from the people who built and raced these amazing machines make the book a must-read for any fan of American muscle.
