The Trans-Am Era: 1966-1972 in

Trans Am Racing

2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the Trans-Am Sedan championship, or Trans-Am, which held its first event in March 1966. A new book from David Bull Publishing brings back all the speed, excitement and intrigue of this classic road racing series during its greatest years in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Trans-Am Era: The Golden Years in Photographs, 1966-1972 uses hundreds of photographs along with detailed captions to deliver a year-by-year, race-by-race account of the Trans-Am's first seven seasons. The focus is on the iconic over two-liter pony cars that attracted the most attention from fans and support from Detroit; the Ford Mustangs, Chevrolet Camaros, Pontiac Firebirds, AMC Javelins, and Dodge Challengers that were hot sellers at the time and remain instantly recognizable today. Driving these machines were many of the top names in American motorsport, including technically sophisticate sports-car driver Mark Donohue, Indy 500 winner Parnelli Jones, and all-around driving aces Dan Gurney and Peter Revson. Along with its abundant images, Trans-Am Era offers detailed captions and season summaries that chronicle the Trans-Am's gradual rise and sudden fall. Author Daniel Lipetz conducted years of research that sheds new light on the series and uncovers previously unknown fac...

Trans Am Racing - Jim Hall: Chaparral, Texas and the Invention of Modern Racing
Jim Hall: Chaparral, Texas and the Invention of Modern

Trans Am Racing

Jim Hall is the Charles Lindbergh of motor racing. The man who changed everything. Here, he tells his story for the first time. From racing's earliest days, the men who designed and built these land-bound rocket ships viewed the air that moved over, under, and around a car as ithauled toward 200 miles per hour as a nuisance with which they had to contend. It was Jim Hall who first saw how this nuisance could be turned not only into a force for good, but a breakthrough in vehicle performance. Today, racers call it “downforce”—the amount of downward force that can be exerted on a car’s tires to improve how well the vehicle stops, goes, and, most of all, grips the corners. Hall’s innovations made him both a hero and celebrity throughout the 1960s and ‘70s. He was on the cover of Newsweek and Sports Illustrated and featured in countless newspaper and magazine articles. TheNew York Times alone published 250 stories about Hall over the period. The Chaparral phenomenon reached Europe and Asia, and into seemingly every American home. Hall’s achievements made him more renowned than understood; he was a famously private individual. Part of it was a natural introspection and an almost obsessive focus on his goals. Part of it was the Texas-cowboy ethos that a man’s actions sh...

Trans Am Racing

AMC’s racing history is chronicled in this volume recounting legendary stories of the cars and their drivers from the NASCAR circuit to the drag strip and beyond.Veteran racing journalist Bob McClurg covers it all: Nash-American Motors’ corporate history, the first years of NASCAR, the 1960s efforts that included Trans-Am and drag racing Super Stock programs, and the Craig Breedlove land speed record efforts when 106 world records were shattered and covered by Hot Rod magazine. And let's not forget the 1970s Trans-Am championships with Donohue and Penske, and finally the NASCAR success with Bobby Allison in the always-curious-looking Matador, which is also covered here.When thinking of a manufacturer's racing involvement, AMC is not a manufacturer that immediately comes to mind. Yet even from the very beginning of American motorsports, Nash and Hudson, the companies that became AMC, had some serious commitment to motorsports. Whether you are a hardcore racing history fan or a casual enthusiast of the AMC street offerings, The History of AMC Motorsports provides a unique showcase vital to every enthusiast's library.

Trans Am Racing - Blood, Sweat & Gears.  The Story of the Gray Ghost and the Junkyard Firebird
Blood, Sweat & Gears. The Story of the Gray Ghost and the Junkyard

Trans Am Racing

In 1971, could a little group of unknown automotive engineers independently design and build a race car from an old 1964 Pontiac sedan and really compete against professional, factory-backed racing teams? Blood, Sweat & Gears is based on the true story of a small group of GM Pontiac Division engineers who did just that – they independently created a race car in 1970 from an old 1964 Pontiac Le Mans with 80,000 miles on its odometer. Without factory support and on a shoestring budget, they seriously competed in the 1971 televised Trans-Am road racing circuit against professional, well-financed, factory-backed racing teams and won the hearts of fans and the press, who dubbed their car the “Gray Ghost.” The following year they did it again, starting with a wrecked Firebird from a junkyard, and shocked the racing world at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Blood, Sweat & Gears is an inspiring, fact-based underdog story of hard work, ingenuity and competitive American grit that has never before been fully told.

Classic Car Stories: Million Dollar Ferrari Sports Cars to Beat-Up Old Ford Trucks, Classic Mopar Hot Rods to Innovative Chevy Rat Rods, Vintage Trans Am Racing to Cars and Coffee

Trans Am Racing

I’ve been writing classic car short stories for seven years, authoring over sixty and nearing 200,000 online “views”. I decided to put together my favorite stories from the past, or at least those that seemed best for book format, as a “Greatest Hits” collection similar to Peter Egan’s Side Glances. I’ve published a collection of twenty-six stories covering a wide cross-section of classic car culture. The cars discussed range from the cheapest old Ford truck to the most expensive Ferraris in the world. The adventures range from driving a 1957 M.G.A. in anger at an off-road race in a rock pit, to oogling million dollar cars at the Lime Rock Historics Festival. I’m a little sarcastic and often don’t follow the crowd which adds some humor. The book is illustrated with pictures of some of the most famous cars in the world (Sterling Moss’ Mille Miglia Mercedes SLR, Nuvolari’s Alfa Romeo, Bentley Old Number One, etc).
