The All-American Muscle Car free pdf

The birth of the muscle car, mid-sized cars with big engines making big horsepower, marked not only a revolution in performance--but also a revolution in marketing. For the first time ever, car manufacturers tailored their product to a youth audience. The genre thrived in the 60s and early 70s and was reborn in the 21st century. "The All-American Muscle Car" celebrates the fifty-year history of the breed through stunning modern and archival photography, and brilliant essays from today's top muscle-car writers. Organized by themes, its chapters cover the introduction and early years of muscle- the cultural trends that made muscle cars so wildly popular- the pop culture that surrounded the cars in music, film, and television- and racing, both legal and illegal. Great rivalries are detailed--Camaro versus Mustang versus Firebird versus Challenger versus 'Cuda, GTO versus Road Runner versus Super Bee versus Chevelle SS versus Buick Gran Sport versus Oldsmobile 4-4-2, and the like. The book also explores the illogical extremes at the end of the classic era, the Plymouth Superbirds, GTOJudges, LS6 Chevelles, Hemi 'Cudas, W-30 Oldsmobiles, Ram Air IV Pontiacs, Stage I GSX Buicks, and 440/6 Road Runners- the dark years and the death of performance- the rebirth of the muscle car- and the modern interpretations of the breed including the new Camaro, Mustang, and Challenger.
