Item description for Quarter-Mile Muscle: Detroit Goes to the Drags by Larry Davis...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Quarter-Mile Muscle: Detroit Goes to the Drags?

Quarter Mile Muscle  Sep 11, 2005
This is the third book by Mr. Davis about, "doorslammers,". They just get better and better!
Must-have book for fans of 60-70s stock class drag racing  Aug 9, 2005
Larry Davis has another great book out as a follow up to Super Stock - Drag Racing the Family Sedan. This one mainly covers the factory built stockers and cars that made places like Woodward Avenue famous. Good clean photos (wish they could have been bigger though) of a lot of stockers. The focus is on the Midwest/Ohio are where Davis grew up. Great book, highly recommended!
