The All-American Muscle Carprovides the ultimate hands-on history of the American Muscle car and where it is now -- Mustangs, Camaros, 'Cudas, Challengers, you name it.

The resultingGTO spearheaded a new breedof performance car aimed at a new breed of buyer: the baby boom generation, tens of millions of young customers entering the market each year.

The All-American Muscle Car: The Rise, Fall and Resurrection of Detroit's Greatest Performance Carstells the story of thesebrutal performance machinesthrough the words of muscle-caricons like Jim Wangers, the man who marketed DeLorean's thuggish invention,Joe Oldham, a legendary automotive journalist who tested these cars when they first came off the production line, often via illegal street racing, andclassic-car broker Colin Comer, who has been instrumental in restoring some of the most iconic (and valuable) muscle cars.
