Just finished reading Martyn L. Schorr's remarkable epic, Motion Performance, Tales Of A Muscle Car Builder. Schorr, the former editor of High Performance Cars and Cars magazines back in the swingin' '60s and less swingin' '70s, lived the Motion experience back then and tells the entire tale from beginning to end.
Much has been written about the Baldwin-Motion supercars that came out of the Baldwin, Long Island, New York speed emporium, but Schorr takes it many steps further. He tells the story of Rosen himself, a kid from Brooklyn who turned his love of high-horsepower and automobiles into a thriving business, building for customers the kinds of cars Chevrolet couldn't—including 454 Camaros and big-block Vegas. Included are hundreds of vintage and current photos of some of the sickest vehicles ever unleashed. If we could have asked for one more thing, we'd have loved to see production numbers. How many of each car were built?
Others than this, we'd recommend this book highly.
