Publisher Comments:

How to Build a Killer Street Machine gives you the knowledge necessary to build the ultimate multipurpose muscle car. There’s much more to building a competent street machine than simply bolting on a bunch of cool-looking parts. You must carefully consider each component’s function and how it will impact the other choices you have made. Author Jefferson Bryant provides the information necessary to help you modify your car for improved performance on the street, drag strip, and even a road course. Major topics covered will include engine, transmission and drivetrain, suspension, brakes, and wheels and tires.

Synopsis:

This book gives the reader the knowledge necessary to build the ultimate multipurpose muscle car, and turn it into a super high-performance one. There is much more to building a street machine than simply bolting on parts, and Jefferson Bryant provides the information necessary to help modify the car, and how to consider each component's function and how it will affect the car's performance on the street, drag strip, even road course, covering engine, transmission, drivetrain, suspension, brakes, wheels, tires, and more, fully illustrated with colour photographs showing both theory and "how-to" stages and practise.

About the Author

Jefferson Bryant is an avid gearhead that began his career in the car audio industry. It wasn’t long, though, before his passion for muscle cars and hot rods inspired him to pick up a wrench and a pen. Jefferson has built many street machines, his first being a 1979 Buick Regal, and most recently, a 1971 Buick GS convertible, which is featured in this book. As an automotive journalist, Jefferson’s work appears regularly in MuscleCar Enthusiast, Car Craft, Hot Rod, Mustang Enthusiast, and many other enthusiast magazines. Bryant lives in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
