Close-up colour pictures look at the engine, interiors, badges and special features of the cars included. This title provides a fascinating insight into a popular motoring phenomenon. It also covers legendary car classics such as the Pontiac, GTP, Mustang, Camaro and Firebird, among many others. Muscle cars are a quintessentially North American phenomenon, owing their outrageous existence to a very simple formula. Take a mid-sized American sedan, nothing too complicated, upmarket or fancy, then add the biggest, raunchiest V8 that it is possible to squeeze under the hood, and there it is. This fascinating book looks at the first Pontiac, with its legendary GTO, Ford's new class of car, the beautiful Mustang, then later manifestations such as the legendary Hemi, Camaro, Firebird and Trans-Am, among many others. There are facts about the manufacturer, design and engineering behind each machine, making each one roar to life on the page. Stunningly illustrated with more than 600 photographs of the different cars in all their glory, this volume is the perfect reference for motoring enthusiasts or for anybody with an interest in classic cars.Stunningly illustrated with more than 600 photographs of the different cars in all their glory, this volume is the perfect reference for motoring enthusiasts or for anybody with an interest in classic cars.
