From lifelong car enthusiast and photographer Mike Mueller comes the most expansive overview of Chrysler Corporation s muscle cars ever published.It s no secret that Dodge and Plymouth have been responsible for some of history s most iconic muscle cars a resume including the immortal Road Runner, Dodge Daytona, Hemi Cuda, Challenger T/A, Charger, Super Bee, Super Bird, and GTX.These cars, often referred to as Mopars (short for Motor Parts, Chrysler s parts division), defined the golden age of the American muscle car.They earned the Motor part of the Mopar name by housing the most robust engines of the period: legendary power plants like the original Firepower Hemi, the Max Wedge, the 440 Super Commando, and the famed Street Hemi.Even their small V8s, like the 340 LA-series engine that powered the AAR Cuda, are the stuff of motorhead folklore.In "The Complete Book of Classic Dodge and Plymouth Muscle," they re all here: every car and every engine from the classic era. This gorgeously illustrated work takes readers through the fifty-plus-year history of Mopar performance, from the Hemi-powered 300 Series through the last cars produced before rising gas prices, tightened emissions, and outrageous insurance rates brought the curtain down on American muscle car production. Author/photographer Mike Mueller offers an in-depth look at the specialty driving machines that have made Mopar performance an enduring part of American automotive culture for over half a century. With extensive details, specs, and spectacular photographs, Mueller s book stands alone as the ultimate resource on America s muscle cars."
