A new version of the book, Art of the Muscle Car, has just been released by Motorbooks. Both the original edition and this new version are available on Amazon. The newest version is called Art of the Muscle Car Collector’s Edition although you will not see that name appear on the book anywhere. The two versions are very similar but the new one contains some fold outs and some prints in the back cover pocket suitable for framing. Although the book is beautiful and does contain a very few new photos it remains full of inaccuracies and mistakes. The most glaring being a 1966 El Camino referred to as a 1969; there is no excuse for this in a book of this quality, especially in its second edition.
The errors do not end there. We were honored to have three of our cars in both books. Unfortunately, the descriptions of the Cale Yarborough Spoiler and Dan Gurney Spoiler II remain scrambled from the first edition. Any novice reading this book for details about out care will likely be more confused about what is a Spoiler and what is a Spoiler II than before they read the text.
Still, the photos are worth the price of the book and just read the information contained inside with an open mind and don’t believe everything you read!
