Pontiac Muscle Car Road Tests: “Muscle Car Confidential. Confessions Of A Muscle Car Test Driver.” The way it was back in the day when automotive journalist Joe Oldham track-tested and street-raced all the Detroit muscle cars when they were new. Pontiacs include ’62 SD-421 Catalina, ’68 PFST Ram Air Firebird, ’69 Ram Air IV Firebird 400, ’69 GTO Judge, ’70 Ram Air IV GTO, ’76 Trans Am and many more Chevy, Olds, Buick, Mopar and Ford muscle cars. Plus a chapter on street racing in NYC, which was part of the test procedure. Beautiful book, hardcover with hundreds of vintage photos of burnouts, handling, engine compartments and other testing. Great restoration reference source. Tell Joe how you want the book signed. Signed copy makes a great gift. $34.95 includes all shipping and handling. Send check or money order to Joe Oldham, 55532 Southern Hills, La Quinta, CA 92253.
