It’s my humble opinion that every red blooded American male should at one point in their lives get behind the wheel of a big-block muscle car. They’re inefficient, politically incorrect and have styling the likes of which will never be duplicated. They were also created in a time when auto manufacturers still had the freedom to let their engineers run wild and make cars that were crafted from childhood fantasies. Nowadays government regulations, environmentalists and manufacturers are regulating the amount of fun we can have, and by doing so are killing the spirit of what the muscle car was all about.
Thankfully though there is a little light for those of us out there who love these fuel burning hammers, and as luck would have it, it comes in a convenient pint sized wrapper. Enter the “Art of the Muscle Car”, a new book by David Newhardt that brings us back to the road burning beasts made between 1964-1979. The book covers 47 different automobiles ranging from the 1970 Plymouth Superbird to the 1974 Pontiac Trans Am SD 455. Plus, there is a forward by none other then Brock Yates. Christmas is literally days away, so if you’re looking for that last minute gift idea for the muscle car lover in your family, this beautiful book may just fit the bill.
