"A wet dream on wheels... that’s what a muscle car is. The embodiment of every adolescent and adult male’s hopes and dreams,” writes legendary auto journalist and author Brock Yates in the forward of David Newhardt’s new book “The Art of the Muscle Car” that celebrates the cars that ignited the passion of the post-World War II generation looking to feed their need for speed.
The book is chock-full of incredible photography by Peter Harholdt that showcases each of the nearly 50 cars featured in vivid color and detail. There are several fold-out photographs with perforation so that they can be removed from the book if desired – an interesting touch. Each muscle car is also briefly outlined and a table outlines details including base and optional engines, base price, curb weight, and production numbers.
