I was on the airplane again and just finished a review of another book; Chevelle SS Restoration Guide by Paul A. Herd and published by Motorbooks. Muscle cars are a hot topic and the Chevelle SS is one of the most popular.
I must say I was disappointed. Chevelles are very popular and available. It is a Chevy for Pete’s sakes. Maybe I am getting spoiled but there should be a wealth of information out there on these cars. If it was one of the lesser know or available cars I could excuse some errors and photos but not on a Chevy.
In the author’s defense this book was first published over 15 years ago and a lot has changed in the hobby since 1992.
Not all is bad. If you are restoring an SS you will likely find the book useful. It is crammed full of parts numbers and some history and descriptions.
