Это история мускул каров - богато иллюстрированная хроника американских высокопроизводительных автомобилей, от их рождения в 1960-е по сегодняшний день!
This is the muscle car history to own - a richly illustrated chronicle of America's greatest high-performance cars, told from their 1960s beginning through the present day!
In the 1960s, three incendiary ingredients - developing V-8 engine technology, a culture consumed by the need for speed, and 75 million baby boomers entering the auto market - exploded in the form of the factory muscle car. The resulting vehicles, brutal machines unlike any the world had seen before or will ever see again, defined the sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll generation.
American Muscle Cars chronicles this tumultuous period of American history through the primary tool Americans use to define themselves: their automobiles. From the street-racing hot rod culture that emerged following World War II through the new breed of muscle cars still emerging from Detroit today, this book brings to life the history of the American muscle car.
