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.

On the eve of the introduction of the first Camaro of the twenty-first century, this big book chronicles the rich history of an American muscle-car era icon. Here, accompanied by fabulous photographs of the models that made history, is the full story of Camaro’s forty years. Beginning with Chevrolet's race in the Sixties to capture the emerging youth market, the book follows Chevrolet’s efforts to come up with a car that could out-muscle the Mustang. The Camaro was that car, and in the years after its introduction in 1967, it set some of the most important performance marks in American automotive history. The classics of the muscle-car era are here--the RS, SS, Z/28, and IROC-Z--along with the models that jumpstarted a new era of American performance in the 1980s. In flashing color and fine detail, Camaro Forty Years captures the innovations and fierce competition, the changes in style and technology that make the story of this legendary car a part of the American automotive story--now opening a new chapter.

Hemi Muscle Cars is the complete illustrated story of the legendary engine and the cars it powered. Author Darwin Holmstrom explores how Chrysler's Hemi engine became the number one choice for drag racers and stock car racers across the country, campaigned to great success by drivers like Richard Petty, Don Garlits, David Pearson, Sox and Martin, and more. In 1950, Chrysler debuted a potent high-performance overhead-valve V-8 engine. Originally called the FirePower, it would soon be better known by the name “Hemi.” Intended to power Chrysler’s luxury cars, the Hemi found a higher calling: humiliating its competitorson the street and at the race track. On top of learning how the Hemi engine came to be, you'll also see how the Hemi remained the engine to beat on the street, stuffed into some of the most desirable performance cars in automotive history: the ‘Cuda, Road Runner, Charger, GTX, and Challenger, to name a few. The Hemi made such a lasting impact that Chrysler revived it as the top engine for the twenty-first century Challenger and Charger. Today, Hemi is a household name, known to enthusiasts and consumers alike, often imitated, never duplicated. Having found its way into both sports cars and luxury cars, you'll often hear: “Hey, has that thing got a Hemi in it?” This book answers “yes”…and offers the full exciting story!
