The SCCA Trans-Am Racing Series launched in 1966, and was designed to showcase a new class of sporty domestic cars racing on road courses. In a few short years it became the ultimate American automobile showdown, as each major automotive manufacturer participated heavily in the Trans-Am Series. When the modified muscle cars of the series were seen performing well on the country's finest tracks, fans wanted a model of their own in the driveway. These "pony" cars boasted a new look and style not seen before, and their all-around performance eclipsed anything accomplished by production-based American GT cars to this point. The Cars of Trans-Am Racingis unique in that it focuses on the cars used in this legendary series. These vintage Mustangs, Camaros, Challengers, Barracudas, Firebirds, Cougars, and Javelins all have become extremely popular with collectors and enthusiasts today. Seeing them in their 'full-competition' versions when they were new will bring back many fond memories for those who were fans of this series. In addition, enthusiasts who enjoy these cars today look to the Trans-Am Series cars for styling inspiration and performance hints as part of the growing Pro Touring trend. Many of these historic cars have been restored to race-ready condition once again. Additional insight and interviews from the original builders and the teams who maintained the cars provide an insider's viewpoint never before seen in print.

Few sports-racing cars have captured the imagination as did the Chaparrals. The menacing white machines from Texas oil country cut a swathe through American sports car racing in the 1960s, and even won at the Nurburgring and Brands Hatch. Created by Jim Hall and Hap Sharp -- and ultimately with the help of GM and Chevrolet -- the Chaparrals pioneered such innovations in racing as the wing for aerodynamic down force and the automatic transmission. Great photos from the author, Stanley Rosenthall, and Max Le Grand show the exotic Chaparrals at rest and in action. Photographs include the first front-engine cars, the 2, 2C, 2E and 2G sports-racers, the 2D and 2F endurance racecars, and the wildest of all, the 2H and 2J -- the first car to use a fan to generate suction down force. The book is a rare treat for fans of the exciting and popular Can-Am racing series.
