Book, How To Hook and Launch: Traction Mods for Street and Strip Part # 33-303702-1
Author: Dick Miller Softbound 8.5 x 11 128 Pages 230 Color Photos ISBN: 9781934709351 While building big horsepower has becomre easier, putting that power to the pavement is still quite a challenge. Getting great "bite" involves a lot more than sticky tires and a smoky burnout. The suspension system is being put to work in a way it was never designed to operate. A better understanding of exactly what is happening to the suspension when the car launches fron a standing start will assist you in maximizing your car's effectivness on the street or at the track. In How to Hook and Launch: Traction Mods for the Street and Strip, author Dick Miller explains the physics behind what gets a car moving from a standing start, and how to best harness the various powers at work. Getting the rear tires to really bite and gain maximum traction is divided into several small steps, and Miller walks you through each phase of the launch. Today's enthusiasts face a wide range of potential traction improvments, from softer tires and basic bolt-ons to complete or partial chassis replacements. Most opt for something in between, where some well-engineered componets are chosen to replace the factory equipment and offer a greater capability and range of adjustment. It is this range of upgrades where Miller spends most of his time, explaining what the parts and pieces do, and how to use them to their highest potential. Learn More

Rusted Muscle, A Collection Of Derelict Dream Machines, Book Part # 33-285789-1
Softbound 8.5 X 11" 176 Pages 420 Color Photos Rusted Muscle, A Collection Of Derelict Dream Machines by Steve Magnante Seeing vintage muscle cars languishing in junkyards never fails to generate an emotional response. Whether it's the desire to rescue the car and bring it back to its former glory, the want to strip it of rare parts for resale, or the memory of a similar car from one's past, the image of a car built for speed that's been laid to waste draws and keeps one's attention. In Rusted Muscle, noted author Steve Magnante takes us on a tour across the country, sharing his most memorable imagery that he's collected. Acquired over years of travel, Magnante's images are stirring, but he also shares important information about the cars when describing them. He may share production numbers regarding a particular year, make and model, or de-code the pictured vehicle's VIN number or data plate to discover how it was equipped when new. In some cases, the cars pictured are quite rare, whereas others are much more pedestrian. This adds another dimension to the book beyond the stirring images. While other books have shared junkyard photography in the past, none have been focused purely on domestic muscle cars, and none have included the level of information acquired about the subject cars like Rusted Muscle does. Considering the immense popularity of muscle cars today, seeing a collection of well-researched derelict examples like this assures enthusiasts that plenty of entry-level fodder still exists. It encourages the reader to search for buried treasure, and pursue their own muscle car dreams. Learn More

Automotive Diagnostic Systems Book Part # 33-285795-1
Softbound 8.5 X 11" 144 Pages 172 Color Photos  Automotive Diagnostic Systems by Keith McCord The electronic control unit and other electronic controls are connected to every major system of a car built within the past 15 years, yet when there is a problem or an error code, many enthusiasts do not know how to go about fixing the problem. With this book, an affordable hand held scanner, and other common tools, the average enthusiast can diagnose and fix most common problems, rather than bringing the vehicle to a dealership for repair at shop rates of $100 per hour or more. Keith McCord recounts the history of automotive onboard diagnostic systems and creation of the rudimentary OBD I systems and the development as well as the evolution of OBD II. Currently, OBD-II (OnBoard Diagnostic II) is the standard of the industry, and this book provides a thorough explanation of this system. It details its main features, capabilities, and characteristics. It shows how to access the port connector on the car, the serial data protocols, and what the serial data means. To understand the diagnostic codes, the numbering system is defined and the table of common DTCs is shown.  But most importantly, McCord provides a thorough process for trouble shooting problems, tracing a problem to its root, explaining why DTCs may not lead to the source of the underlying problem, and ultimately resolving the problem. Almost anyone can hook a scanning tool up to the serial port and read the error, but the key to fixing the problems is using an effective trouble shooting process that resolves all the issues that may be contributing or creating the problem. McCord provides sound procedures, insight, and information for resolving most ECU and computer control problems at home with affordable consumer-grade scanners. Learn More

While the swapping process is covered in detail, the author also provides a helpful Gen III and Gen IV LS engine guide, so the reader finds the best performing and reliable engine suited for a particular car and application, such as Pro Touring, drag racing, and high-performance street. In addition, the author explains how to shop for and buy a used LS engine from a salvage yard, so you get a good engine with all required accessories.

The Muncie was the top high-performance manual transmission General Motors offered in its muscle cars of the 1960s and early 1970s. It was installed in the Camaro, Chevelle, Corvette, El Camino, Firebird, Nova and many other classic GM cars. Many owners want to retain the original transmission in their classic cars to maintain their value.

Comprehensive ID information is provided, so you can positively identify the cases, shafts, and related parts. It discusses available models, parts options, and gearbox cases.

No other book goes into this much detail on the identification of the Muncie 4-speed, available parts, selection of gear ratios, and the rebuild process.

Detroit Muscle: Factory Lightweights And Purpose-Built Muscle Cars Part # 33-391812-1
Pages: 192 Size: 10 X 10 (inches) Format: Hardback Illustrations: 457 color   The muscle car era, and the era that immediately preceded it, are a unique window in time; it is one that we will not likely see again. Post-war USA was a place where people wanted to move on from the horrors of conflict, to embrace an era of peace, and to pursue, well, all sorts of things. A whole generation was entering a new prosperity, with home ownership on the rise, gainful employment increasing, the building of suburbs, and a new interstate system connecting everyone. That all helped increase our dependence upon, and in turn, deepen our love affair with the automobile. It started in the 1950s, when automakers realized that if they made their cars more powerful than brand X and won races on the weekends as well, sales would follow those victories into the dealership. Not everybody was enamored with all this new-found performance, however, and throughout the late 1950s and early 1960s, a struggle developed between building faster automobiles and appearing responsible and promoting the cause of safety. This led to racing participation on an all-out corporate level, followed by voluntary self-imposed and publicized bans, back-door cheating on said bans, and then investing in performance again.A byproduct of all this activity was some really fascinating and exciting cars. It began with standard-chassis cars growing bigger and including more powerful engines. Then they graduated to being lighter, putting big engines into mid-size chassis (muscle cars), and building race cars that barely resembled anything on the street. Detroit Muscle: Factory Lightweights and Purpose-Built Muscle Cars follows the evolution of the fastest, most powerful, and exciting vehicles of the era, in both drag racing and NASCAR. From early Hudson Hornets, to the birth of the Hemi, to aluminum and fiberglass panel sedans, to lightweight special-order muscle cars ready to race from the factory. Learn More

Selling The American Muscle Car: Marketing Detroit Iron In The 60s And 70s Part # 33-391813-1
Pages: 192 Size: 10 X 10 (inches) Format: Hardback Illustrations: 290 color, 145 b/w   As the muscle car wars developed in the early 1960s, auto manufacturers scrambled to find catchy marketing campaigns to entice the buying public into their dealerships. General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler, with all their divisions, as well as AMC and Studebaker, inevitably sank billions of dollars into one-upmanship in an effort to vie for the consumer's last dollar.Automotive writer Diego Rosenberg examines the tactics and components used by manufacturers in waging war against one another in the muscle car era. Manufacturers poured millions into racing programs, operating under the principle of "Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday." Cars were given catchy nicknames, such as The GTO Judge, Plymouth Roadrunner, Cobra, and Dodge Super Bee. Entire manufacturer lines were given catchy marketing campaigns, such as Dodge's Scat Pack, AMC's Go Package, and Ford's Total Performance. From racing to commercials to print ads, from dealer showrooms to national auto shows, each manufacturer had its own approach in vying for the buyer's attention, and gimmicks and tactics ranged from comical to dead serious.Selling the American Muscle Car: Marketing Detroit Iron in the 60s and 70s takes you back to an era when options were plentiful and performance was cheap. You will relive or be introduced to some of the cleverest marketing campaigns created during a time when America was changing every day. Learn More

Pages: 144 Size: 8.5 X 11 (inches) Format: Paperback Illustrations: 292 color   A key component, often overlooked, in automotive restoration is metal preparation. In essence, all the best bodywork, primer, and fancy paint won't do you any good if the metal surface it adheres to is not expertly prepared.

Covered are basic metal considerations such as type and size of metal; intended purpose of cleaning the metal; approaches to cleaning metal through chemical, mechanical abrasive, and media abrasive systems; mastering the processes for consistent results; small- and large-scale projects; and post-cleaning prep procedures. In short, anyone who takes shortcuts in the metal preparation area of restoration is virtually guaranteed disappointment down the road.

This structure made it possible to compete against others with similar equipment, and for the most talented tuners and drivers to become National Champions and/or World Record holders in their class. This class format encouraged amateur participation on a level never before seen. Drag racing was a popular hobby for many, and their competition vehicles were typically warmed-over street cars that had been strategically upgraded to the limits of their specific class. This made drag racing wildly popular and amazingly attainable. The end of the class structure meant a great loss in the sport's popularity, but these amazing times will never be forgotten. Stock-class drag racing is celebrated in this new book, with hundreds of vintage color photographs showing the way it used to be. If you were a fan or participant back in the day, or are a lover of vintage drag cars, Junior Stock: Stock Class Drag Racing 1964-1971 is a book you'll thoroughly enjoy. Learn More
