Editorial Reviews

Review

“If it’s bangs for the bucks you look for in a book, you won’t do better than this.” - Classic and Sports Car


“It’s easy to underestimate the impact Chrysler’s revolutionary hemispherical-head V8 engine - or Hemi – has had on the world. It’s legendary, and this huge 340-page book does it full justice.” - Auto Express



“Author David Holmstrom and photographer David Newhardt have assembled a primer on the Hemi.” - Larry Printz, McClatchy-Tribune Information Services

“You can all but hear the engine on full-chat as you leaf though its pages. Well laid-out and a perfect coffee-table discussion piece, it is worth every penny.” - Lincolnshire Echo

“The pictures are excellent and are not just of road cars either, there’s some cool hot rods and awesome drag car shots in there as well.” – Custom Car

“This massive coffee table-style book spans the entire history of Chrysler’s most famous engine, from pre-Hemi cars like the Airflow to the Challenger SRT8 on the cover.” - Muscle Car Review

“There is page after page of terrific photography of restored cars and race cars and the stories of how there infamous engine came to be.” – Mark Maynard, San Diego Union-Tribune



“There is page after page of terrific photography of restored cars and race cars and the stories of how this infamous engine came to be.” – Mark Maynard, San Diego Union Tribune

“…setting the book apart from others currently on your coffee table is the stunning artwork by photographer David Newhardt. His images enticingly capture the entire vehicle.” – Greg Williams, Calgary Herald

“While Motorbooks has published several Mopar-focused titles, Hemi Muscle Cars, which covers everything from the earliest Hemi cars to the latest Challenger, now ranks as the authoritative volume, a glorious, oversized book filled with spectacular photography.” – Richard Truesdell, Musclecar Enthusiast

Format: Hardcover
I love all muscle cars, but I've been a Mopar guy since I was a kid. This is the best book on Chrysler muscle cars that I have ever read. All the other Hemi books focus on the technology; this one covers the technology better than the rest, but the focus is on the people and culture that made the Hemi one of the world's top automotive icons. And the photography is some of the best I have ever seen.

I bought this book as a gift for my husband, but ended up reading it myself. I bought the book because he loves Hemis and the photography was beautiful, but I ended up reading it because it was a great story.

Wonderful examples captured in great photography. Particularly enjoyed the 51 New Yorker coupe treatment. Who remembers Hemi's started so early?
