Description

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.

  • 55 muscle cars featured
  • over 350 colour photos
  • performance and production specs

    VARIED - NOT JUST MUSTANGS/CAMAROS

    Posted by PHIL on 2nd Aug 2017

    BIG VARIETY - MANY I WAS NOT FAMILIAR WITH (NOT JUST A LOT OF MUSTANGS OF WHICH I HAVE OTHER BOOKS AS I OWN ONE). THE INFO IS BRIEF BUT ENOUGH AND THE PHOTOS GOOD AS USUAL FOR FIRST GEAR BOOKS. THIS SERIES IS GOOD BUT A BIT PRICEY FOR A SMALL FORMAT BOOK, ALTHOUGH THE SIZE IS CONVENIENT FOR PORTABILITY AND A QUICK READ ON THE BUS/TRAIN/PLANE
