The original muscle-car era ended in the early 1970s when ecological concerns and a fuel crunch conspired to prompt tougher federal mandates. Over the last half decade, Detroit has rebounded with a number of high-performance automobiles that have won the praise of automotive enthusiasts and the motoring press. This new all-color book examines a number of these modern muscle cars, including the Ford Mustang, Corvette C5, Camaro SS, Plymouth Prowler and Dodge Viper, to name a few. Each chapter is illustrated with all-new color photography accompanied by design and production histories, Patrick Paternies driving impressions and performance specifications.
