Editorial Reviews

Review

Car Collector Magazine, December 2007

“A great deal of attention is paid the Camaro SS, which played a significant role in the Chevy Pony Car’s immediate popularity and showroom sales battle with the Mustang. In fact, only the Impala SS and Chevelle SS have more pages dedicated to them than the Camaro. In six chapters the author manages to get as much history and detail, touching on the finer points of engines, options, and features, as you can pack into 128 pages, plus an impressive 122 images. For Chevy fans, if you don’t already have the hard cover edition, you can pick this new soft cover copy up for a song.”



MidwestBookReview.com, May 2007
Chevy SS is highly recommended and [a] core addition to personal, academic or community libraries, American Automotive History reference collections, and reading lists.”

Octane, June 2007


“As big and blocky as the cars it celebrates, this 350-page hardback is dominated by David Newhardt’s fine color photography.”


“If, however, you are looking for a true gem to add to your automotive library, this diamond is a real bargain.” – Jim Hinckley, Cars and Parts

From the Inside Flap

During the classic muscle car era, American cars meant performance. Driving an American muscle car meant driving the baddest machine on the road. Every detail of the cars backed this up. Engine badges gave other street racers a clue as to just how badly they were about to be stomped in a stoplight drag race. Even the striping meant something, and no stripes meant as much as the twin skunk stripes running from the hood to the trunk of Chevrolet’s mighty Super Sports. Regardless of which Super Sport model those stripes graced—agile Camaros with lightweight small blocks and fabulous F41 suspensions, luxurious Impalas with their monstrous big-block engines, or LS6-equipped Chevelle 454SSs with the most powerful engine of the entire muscle-car era—the name “Super Sport” screamed mind-bending performance.

 

Super Sport: 50 Years of Chevy Muscle relives the complete story of these iconic automobiles, from the Corvette racing prototype of 1957 to the V-8-powered Super Sports of the 21st century. With new photography of all major Super Sport models, this book is the first book to do justice to Chevrolet’s fantastic Super Sports.

Format: Hardcover
A superbly presented photographic showcase of Chevrolet' Super Sport (SS) models ranging from the 1957 Corvette show car (the first Chevy to claim SS rights), through the Impala, Monte Carlo, and Cobalt SS models of today. This coffee table format compendium offers 348 pages of David Newhardt's full-color photography combined with an informed and informative text by Robert Genat. The result is a detailed survey at Chevrolet's muscle carts that were engineered and designed to wear the SS label with a distinctive look, style, and performance that made these designated cars so popular over that past half century. "Chevy SS" is a highly recommended and core addition to personal, academic, or community library American Automotive History reference collections and reading lists.

Very nice Book with lots of information...
But why I cant find the Impala 1963 SS ???
The missing of this Icon of Detroit Steel makes this very incomplete !!
