MOPAR Muscle Reviews
Bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas. He owns a 70 Challenger that is also plum crazy! He loved this gift! :)
We ordered this book for my father for Father's Day who owns a 1970 Dodge Challenger. He is a huge gear-head and enjoys reading about classic cars was much as the next guy. Although more pricey than paperback options, the hard cover was worth the extra cost. This book has crisp full page photos with excellent information to accompany them. Plenty of attention is given to all the major vehicles and even to a few less common cars. The book is solid and heavy which lends it to be a coffee table type book and not one you will toss up on your bookshelf. If you are looking for a great gift for a car buff in your life I would highly recommend item. Oh, and remember...this is a Mopar book. If you are looking for a book on Mustangs, or Corvettes keep looking =)!
I am very impressed with the historic presentation of the Mopar vehicles. It seems that in the early days of automobile construction ALL of the manufacturers were trying to improve improve performance and comfort in their vehicles. When did high horse power and high torque become bad words?
This book did an excellent job of detailing the history of Mopar. I loved that it started with the history of the engines (it's the parts that made Mopar famous), and it didn't leave out the pony cars. Well told, with tons of detail and great pics. Bravo...*golf clap*...Bravo.
Very well done pictures; many details about the car designs and how they arrived at the final look.
The book arrived in great shape and I love the book!
This book is a good pic book and hi quality pics and some good info but limited in scope since it seems to focus an some models with alot of pics and not all models or small few pics on certain car models. Alot of good info in it though.
Lots of info in this book. Good color pictures of cars and some of the modern trucks. If you are a Mopar fan this is a good book to have. You can usually find it used and in very good condtion for a reasonable price.
