Muscle Car Confidential: Confessions of a Muscle Car Test Driver

Book Description:
Today, a 1970 Hemi Cuda can change hands for as much as a quarter of a million dollars. But when it was introduced, the Barracuda was just a car, and it was Joe Oldhams job to beat the daylights out of it. A tell-all from the man who tested the best, this book delves into the notes Oldham made on the cars he vetted for some of the top car magazines.Here are the photos (including outtakes) and the hard cold facts on muscle cars from the 1964 GTO to the 1976 Trans Am 455 HO--twenty-four in all. The 1970 Buick Gran Sport GSX, Oldham notes, was "the best handling muscle car we ever tested." The 1968 Plymouth Road Runner, on the other hand, was "just a car that didnt run very well"--despite its 426 Hemi.Today, people might know the articles Oldham wrote, and they might know the performance numbers he got. But how he did those things was an untold story. This behind-the-scenes book is a close-up look at what it was like to live in the muscle car era and to help create the myth that still lives on today.The list of reviewed cars includes:1962 421 Super Duty Pontiac Catalina1963 409 Chevrolet Biscayne1968 Pontiac Firebird Sprint Turismo1969 Baldwin-Motion SS-427 Camaro1969 440 Plymouth Barracuda1969 Firebird 400 Ram Air IV1969 426 Hemi Road Runner1969 440 Plymouth GTX1969 440 6-BBL Plymouth Road Runner1969 Pontiac GTO Judge1969 428 Cobra Jet Mustang Mach 11970 426 Hemi Barracuda Convertible1970 Buick GSX 455 Stage 11970 Pontiac GTO Ram Air IV1971 429SCJ Ford Torino Cobra1971 American Motors 401 AMX1972 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 W-301973 Chevrolet Camaro Z281976 455 Pontiac Trans Am
