Become a better performance driver with Speed Secrets With the promise of autonomous vehicles in our near future, and current cars equipped with all sorts of mind-boggling "driver aides," many feel that the art (and science) of performance driving has been lost - or will be. But no! For every device designed to take the act of driving out of our hands, the desire to actively participate in the control of a car becomes even stronger for driving enthusiasts. One only needs to look at the number of performance cars available today to see that the desire to truly drive is still in strong demand. In Speed Secrets: The Lost Art of Performance Driving, Ross Bentley explains in plain language how you can become an even better performance-oriented driver, whether it's to enjoy a twisty mountain highway, to take that secret back-road route to work, or to participate in a track day on a racing circuit. From how best to use your car's controls, to cornering, to dealing with adverse driving conditions, this book will make you a better performance driver. Along the way, you'll learn what ABS, traction and stability control, self-braking systems, and semi-automatic transmissions do and how best to incorporate them into your driving. Speed Secrets: The Lost Art of Performance Driving will help you understand your car well and be an even better, faster driver. Most importantly, it will fuel your passion for driving!

High performance and utterly thrilling to drive, the muscle car changed the way we view automobiles. Through marketing wars and head to head horse power battles, a carefully curated ideology of what the muscle car should be able to do evolved. American family style two door sports coups with rear wheel drive are fitted with a large V8 engine to create this icon of muscle and speed. Distinct from the low, two seat, European sports cars, muscle cars are much more affordable. Muscle cars are a quintessentially North American phenomenon, owing their outrageous existence to a very simple formula. Take a mid-size American sedan (nothing too complicated, upmarket, or fancy) then add the biggest, raunchiest V8 that is possible to squeeze under the hood and behold: the magnificent muscle car. Pontiac was first, with the legendary GTO. Ford followed with the invention of a new class of car with the pony car, the Mustang. Every other American manufacturer joined in the act after that, all wanting a cut of the action. Muscle cars are loud and proud. Look further into this fascinating book to discover the intoxicating world of these wonderful machines. Includes information on models, facts, and other interesting information on America's pride and joy; the legendary muscle car.
