Maximum MuscleMaximum Muscle: Factory Special Musclecars by Steve Statham. Paperback; 128 pages.

Book Description
During the height of the muscle car era, Ford, Chrysler, GM, and AMC offered a number of cars which, in addition to being street legal, were designed to meet the specifications necessary to campaign the NASCAR, NHRA drag racing, and SCCA Trans-Am race series.

Modern color photography of showroom-quality examples provide a view of remarkable machines like the Boss 302 and 429, Chrysler Hemi, Plymouth AAR 'Cuda, Dodge Challenger T/A, AMX Javelin, Mercury Cyclone Spoiler, and Plymouth Superbird.

Automotive Mileposts Review:

It's a good thing this book is about muscle cars, as you'll see when you pick up this book - you're going to need muscles to do it! Weighing in at better than 6½ pounds, with dimensions of 12 x 11, to say it's a big book is an understatement. But it's much more than just a big book. Crammed full of facts and figures, we just can't put it down. The photography is stunning, with super rare cars that are rarely seen these days, all shot on location - you won't be able to determine which is your favorite photo. This book defines the muscle car generation, the age of love, drugs, and rock and roll, when the need for speed was number one, and American car makers gave the people the powerful cars they wanted. It was an era the likes of which we will never see again, and with each turn of the page, it's one thrill after another.

MustangMustang by Randy Leffingwell. Hardcover; 192 pages.

Book Description
Probably the best color photography on this subject to date. Includes all Mustangs from 1964½ through 1995, with considerable attention paid to prototypes.

There's even information about the Bullitt Mustang, from the 1968 movie of the same name which starred Steve McQueen. Famous for its car chase scene, the streets of San Francisco seem tame today when compared to the chaos created in this movie! Mustang fans will enjoy this book.

Automotive Mileposts Review
Featuring hundreds of exploded views and diagrams, this book also highlights the options available each year. Not really a step-by-step guide for a complete restoration project, but a good resource to have during a restoration, especially for the early Mustangs through the 1970 model year.
