9781613250518: The Cars of Trans-Am Racing: 1966-1972 (CarTech)

The SCCA Trans-Am racing series launched in 1966, and was designed to showcase a new class of sporty domestic cars racing on road courses. In a few short years it became the ultimate American automobile showdown, as each major automotive manufacturer participated heavily in the Trans-Am Series. When the modified muscle cars of the series were seen performing well on the country's finest tracks, fans wanted a model of their own in the driveway. These pony cars boasted a new look and style not seen before, and their all-around performance eclipsed anything accomplished by production-based American GT cars to this point.

The Cars of Trans-Am Racing is unique in that it focuses on the cars used in this legendary series. These vintage Mustangs, Camaros, Challengers, Barracudas, Firebirds, Cougars and AMXs all have become extremely popular with collectors and enthusiasts today. Seeing them in their 'full competition' versions when they were new will bring back many fond memories for those who were fans of this series. Additionally, enthusiasts who enjoy these cars today look to the Trans-Am series cars for styling inspiration and performance hints as part of the growing Pro Touring trend.

Many of these historic cars have been restored to race-ready condition once again. Additional insight and interviews from the original builders and the teams who maintained the cars provides an insider's viewpoint never before seen in print.
