The All-American Muscle Car: The Birth, Death and Resurrection of Detroit's Greatest Performance Cars

  • Used Book in Good Condition

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.

    I love this book. It is filled with gorgeous photos of the wonderful muscle cars that were produced from the mid 60′s until the mid 70′s. I personally drove some of them at that time and reading all the interesting information brought back so many memories. A real treasure for anyone interested in cars of bygone days. It is written by several authors, all an expert in their field. A terrific coffee table book.

    This review is from: The All-American Muscle Car: The Birth, Death and Resurrection of Detroit’s Greatest Performance Cars (Hardcover)
    I have read many books about Henry Ford, deserted buildings and American muscle cars. I have to say that I learn more about each topic with every book I read and usually enjoy the books even though I have read others. This book certainly falls into that category. I learned quite a few new things about American muscle cars from it. Great contributors. Fantastic insight into the cars and the people behind them. Photos are not world class, but the grand text and writing styles make up for that in spades. Do not summarily dismiss this as “just another muscle car book”. It is by far way more than that. It has the usual suspects, of course, but contains a lot of other information I had not seen in other articles or books. A fascinating topic covered very well in a well written book. Enjoy this one. I sure did!

Tattoo Girl Says

Not long ago, tattoos have seen an increase in interest. They have persisted since back then yet you'll find that there's a distinctive love-hate correlation when it concerns tattoos. There are those that understand them as a form of beauty and a means to showcase oneself yet others affiliate a deficiency of morals as well as other unpleasant qualities to those people who have tattoos. Disregarding their proclivity, we all know that tattoos have actually been enduring and will even carry on doing so for many years to come. At this point, you'll notice generally more people who sport a tattoo or at a minimum, deciding on getting one than in the past. Generally, the appeal that tattoos provide is a lot more appreciated by young adults and acquiring a tattoo that is quite competently designed would surely add on to it.

Unfortunately, a different way of regarding tattoos is really one which may cast them in a negative light. This acknowledges tattoos, most notably outlandish kinds, as a detail that reduces somebody's degree of professionalism especially in the work place. In such a case, possessing an exposed tattoo may possibly damage the chances of you securing a stable career. Naturally, this will depend on the manager's view on tattoos. A person who has any kind of tattoos inside of the confines of the office suit she or he is dressing up in is not going to encounter much problems as it is not apparent to other people in plain sight. Hence, tattoo placement is still quite essential nowadays and individuals who do not comply with these unmentioned standards might lose out. Tattoos in intimate regions are typically more sought for since they may be visible only by the people close towards the wearer.

When getting a tattoo, a specific thing that needs adequate advanced planning is your tattoo designs. Heart-felt text and symbolic artistic renditions are still the most prevalent types of tattoo designs simply because they hold their own even in 50 years. When you choose tattoo designs which offers ambiguous interpretations to the observer, you could potentially match them to whatever you are experiencing at the moment. "Cliched" designs should generally be steered clear of as they quite simply will likely not stand the test of time. Adding to that, you will be better off not getting tattoos which demonstrates very sensitive or taboo matters if you plan to stay away from complications.

A tasteful tattoo is usually elegant, fulfilling and great to admire whereas an inferior work could easily turn you into a small kid's artwork; not quite half decent but your nearest and dearest might just simply say otherwise. For this reason, much like any other thing that we do, groundwork is very important. You should never make purchasing a tattoo an impulsive decision. Do spend some time and seek information or recommendations to help you in your selection. If you give it your all, the result will be fruitful.
