Muscle Car Confidential: Confessions of a Muscle Car Test Driver
A tell-all from the man who tested the best, Muscle Car Confidential" delves into the stories behind the notes Joe Oldham made on the cars he vetted for some of the era’s top car magazines. Here are the photos (including outtakes) and the hard, cold facts on muscle cars, from the 1962 421 Super Duty Catalina to the 1976 Trans Am 455 HO–twenty in all. In 2004, a 1970 Hemi ‘Cuda convertible sold for over $4,000,000.00. On a cold autumn day in 1970, it had puked transmission fluid on a drag strip, forever endearing it to the owners of Englishtown, New Jersey’s Raceway Park. You might know the articles Oldham wrote; you might know the performance numbers he got. But until now, how he wrote the articles and produced the numbers was an untold story. This behind-the-scenes book is a close-up look at what it was like to live in the muscle car era and help create the myth that lives on today.
