Keeping a Muscle Car Alive

howtokeepmusclecar010-small This book authored by Harvey White , Jr. and published by Motorbooks, applies to all cars of the 1960s and1970s with particular emphasis on muscle cars. It is for the beginner guy or gal who wants a good overview of the workings of a typical muscle car.

You aren’t told how to repair every specific car but rather how to diagnose typical problems on these cars. There are also very useful reminders on how these cars should be maintained. Remember, the cars from this vintage required considerably more maintenance than today’s vehicles.

The author also provides some very sensible suggestions on updating and modifying your classic muscle car for daily driving.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
