From the turn of the Twentieth Century to the present day, Classic American Cars An Illustrated Guide traces the development of the American automobile, and the social change it brought. Author Craig Cheetham begins by looking at the horseless carriages of old, and moves into the fighter plane inspired designs of the 1940’s, before moving to the cars of today. Technical details, modifications made from their automobile predecessors, their performance and handling on the road, and the public's reception of the car are described so vividly that you'll think you're in the driver's seat. And every car is, of course, accompanied with beautiful images.

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.

When the Camaro was introduced in 1967 as an answer to the wildly popular Mustang and the "pony car" category it created, the Chevrolet response proved to be very popular in its own right. Of course, every successful act needs an encore, and what followed was the second-generation Camaro, produced from early 1970 until 1981. The new model was a dramatic departure from its predecessor, with a body style and features that evolved steadily over its 12-year production run. From the early years featuring LT1 engines, a multitude of performance packages and dramatic euro styling, to the later years when comfort replaced performance in many aspects, the second-generation Camaro remains extremely popular today. Whether you have an SS, Z/28, Rally Sport, Type LT, Sport Coupe, or Berlinetta, The Definitive Camaro Guide: 1970-1981 showcases the various cosmetic, interior, powertrain, and chassis changes that occurred on all models through the years. Heavily illustrated, the book features more than 450 images detailing the correct parts and accessories your Camaro had when new. Author Jason Scott is an expert on this marque. This guide will help enthusiasts authentically restore their second-generation Camaro. After stumbling out of the gate with a late-model-year release, the second-generation Camaro outsold its predecessor two to one. With the prices of first-generation Camaros escalating rapidly, the second-generation cars have become very popular. More important, little literature can be found in the market to help owners of second-generation Camaros correctly identify parts and components for their cars. This benchmark book will be a must-have for 1970-1981 Camaro owners wanting to correctly bring their car back to original specification.
