This review is from: The Cars of Trans-Am Racing: 1966-1973 (Hardcover)
Author David Tom bubbles with enthusiasm for his subject and has crafted a book that reflects that boundless enthusiasm . This is a super book which is so good that it is almost impossible to know where to start with ones praises . The story of Trans-Am racing is fully told , interspersed with accounts of the restoration of individual cars and the recollections of period participants . Lavishly illustrated , page after page contains absolutely fascinating technical revelations . Worth buying just for its detailed illustrations of the late Henry 'Smokey ' Yunick's 'creative engineering !! An absolutely superb book for the motorsports enthusiast , I cannot recommend it highly enough . If only all motorsport books were this good or showed such obvious passion on the part of their authors . A truly delightful book .

This review is from: The Cars of Trans-Am Racing: 1966-1973 (Hardcover)
An excellent book on vintage Trans-Am informatively written and really well researched by someone with hands-on experience of both the cars themselves and the racing.
Many of the cars are examined with interesting stories that surround them.
The Smokey Yunick Camaro gets particular attention and the photos and info from the restoration of this iconic car are excellent.
This is the best book (so far) on Trans-Am

Excellent book covering the technical side of the cars, the manufacturers involvement in both technical aspects and the politics which developed, and the history of the classic Trans-Am racing era. Also covers the restoration and racing of these vehicles in historic racing.

This review is from: The Cars of Trans-Am Racing: 1966-1973 (Hardcover)
A great book,reasonably priced for fans of early pony cars . Learnt a lot and anyone contemplating a rebuild could pick up a few useful tips as well,but if not, just enjoy the nostalgia and marvel at the tricks of Smokey Yunick and others.

I bought this for my brother in law for Christmas but when I received it I couldn't put it down, very nostalgic just how trans am used to be before it became commercialised.
