Complete description

"Muscle Cars" is the story of America's pursuit of sheer horsepower in the 1960s and '70s. The first of the type, the famous Pontiac GTO or Goat, would launch a race between America's automotive manufacturers to produce ever-more-powerful V8 engines wrapped in legendary Coke-bottle sheet metal styling. Following Ford's extremely successful introduction of the galloping Mustang in 1964, others would follow, such as General Motors' Camaro and Firebird as well as Plymouth's Barracuda, competing against one another on race tracks to Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday. This book details these golden years, as well as the economic and environmental developments of the 1970s that brought an end to the muscle car era. Top page
