Muscle Car Bible
on February 11, 2007
I find myself being "out classed" by my friends and acquaintances that know eveything there is to know about 'muscle cars'. Although my personal interest lies in the antique automobile hobby
(that means automobiles from before WWII)
no matter where I go (whether it is a car show, a car auction or a car museum) the current craze and fascination in with the big engine cars of the late 60's and 70's. Well this is the Bible when it comes to a treasure trove of important detailed and comprehensively presented information. You might find it handy and useful to have this authoritative book at you finger tips when the argument comes up as to what size engine was in a thus and such or how many hardtops were manufactured in a certain year. Moreover, if you have a bucket full of cash and you find yourself seated at one of them fancy televised auto auctions bidding on a million dollar muscle car, this would be a fine book to research as to the details and specifics of the make and model in question. It has great color photographs and I have yet to be disappointed in failing to find an American made muscle car presented in its pages. This book is a sure fire way to "win a bet" if you've got the Bible tucked under your car seat while the work bench "experts" argue the finer points of muscle car power, style and history. You'll need to store it under the car seat...I just won't fit in the glove compartment. My only complaint...(what would a book criticism be without at least one complaint...) the editor and the publisher mite hav benifited from a secund or thud proff reed befour they wint to printt!
