The classic muscle car era is undoubtedly one of the most exciting in America's long motoring history. For a brief window during the 1960s and early 1970s, manufacturers packed huge horsepower into lightweight and stylish bodies, creating sexy machines with the power to attract the growing youth market. Racing success on the drag strips and NASCAR ovals led to unparalleled popularity in the showrooms, where a discerning buyer could emulate his motorsports heroes by simply checking the right option boxes.
In Muscle Cars, author and photographer Mike Mueller documents over 50 of the most popular American powerhouses from the muscle era to today's new muscle, from early pioneers like the Chrysler C-300 to classics like the GTO and 'Cuda, through the new generations of Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger. All the major muscle cars are profiled along with technical specifications, model-year details, and trivia. If you're a fan of no-holds-barred horsepower, you'll find it here.
