In many ways, drag racing spawned the muscle car era of the '60s. Super Stock drag racing was huge in the early '60s, and the factories encouraged their teams' success by building high-power, lightweight cars that'd be sure hits at the drags. Then in '64, Pontiac introduced the GTO, with the classic "small car, big engine" formula that hot rodders had been using for years. Other manufacturers responded with their own pony cars and muscle cars, and for nearly 10 years, muscle cars ruled the drags. Quarter Mile Muscle covers the development and success of the muscle cars at the drags in all classes, from Super Stock to the early muscle car-based funny cars. Special attention is paid to low-production factory cars that were intended specifically for the drags - cars like the COPO Camaros, Ford Thunderbolts, and the dealer-built specials from Yenko, Motion, and others.

Review:

Mopar Collector's Guide, February 2006

"The impressive thing about Larry Davis's new book is the incredible amount of color photography it contains. Even better, the text accompanying the photos is well written, emotionally researched, and laid out in an easy to read format."
