From 1964 to 1971, a growing obsession for cars with power and speed gave birth to a whole culture of cars and their owners. This mighty new book shows off the most exciting era in Detroit’s car-making history — the age of the muscle car. Although new emissions standards and oil conservation brought about the end of the muscle car era, its designs can still be seen in many of today’s cars. Awesome images highlight classic models and simple, clear text helps explain engine principles such as horsepower and torque. Topics include
• what defines a muscle car
• styling trends such as spoilers, hood scoops, and striking paint jobs
• breakout models, including the GTO, Road Runner, Charger, Barracuda, and others
• the influence of NASCAR on car design
• basic engine layouts and their influence on car performance
