No other automobile in history so clearly demarcates a before-and-after line in the sand like the 1955 Chevrolet. This was the birth of the affordable performance car, and from the moment the car hit the streets, the experience of driving would never be the same.

Chevrolet dominated the muscle-car scene throughout the classic era. The Impala SS, with its 409 engine popularized by the Beach Boys, ruled America's drag strips. The Z16 Chevelle Malibu SS396 became the every man's muscle car. The Camaro turned the pony car genre into genuine muscle cars. The LS6 engine was the most powerful of the classic era.

This book chronicles the all-conquering cars of this incredible 20-year period.

In the spirit of the first asphalt-eaters of musclecardom comes the new Pontiac GTO, the Goat with the most�the most power, that is. Yesterday�s legend becomes a modern Main Street contender yet again in GTO: The Legend Returns. In a complete, authoritative telling, GTO: The Legend Returns by renowned automotive journalists Gary Witzenburg and Paul Zazarine provides the only book of its kind. This volume documents the birth of the original GTO in the early �60s, through the first generation�s finale in 1974, to today�s rebirth.


By 1969, the muscle car war among Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler had reached a fever pitch. The Plymouth Road Runner, Mopar’s intermediate entry, was leading the charge. The Road Runner had its strongest year yet in 1970 because it housed the best street V-8s that Chrysler had to offer.  Author Scott Ross retraces the history of the Road Runner and brings the 1970 model year into full focus. The stripped-down Road Runner exemplified the essence of a purpose-built muscle car: brute power and stunning acceleration. A new aggressive grille and Air Grabber hood provided an audacious yet tasteful performance statement.  The back-to-basics 'Bird had a unique character with its iconic cartoon Road Runner graphics and beep-beep horn. Each volume in the In Detail Series provides an introduction and historical overview, an explanation of the design and concepts involved in creating the car, a look at marketing and promotion, an in-depth study of all hardware and available options, as well as an examination of where the car is on the market today. Also included are paint and option codes, VIN and build tag decoders, as well as production numbers.
