How to Build & Modify GM Pro-Touring Street Machines: Classic Looks with Modern Performance

How to Build & Modify GM Pro-Touring Street Machines: Classic Looks with Modern Performance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

GM's muscle cars of the '60s and '70s were great for their time - but what they did best was go in a straight line. Today's performance cars have it all though - speed, handling, and comfort. This book shows you how to build a Pro-Touring machine: a classic muscle car that accelerates, stops, corners, and rides like Detroit's best new high-performance cars. Author Tony E. Huntimer goes through a car's major systems - drivetrain, chassis, suspension, body, and interior - and shows you how to upgrade that classic muscle car to make it a modern performer. Electronic fuel injection, 6-speed trannies, better shocks and springs, modern seating and instruments, and subtle body mods are all covered, along with step-by-step how-to sequences on many key modifications. Classic muscle car looks, with modern muscle car performance - that's what Pro-Touring is all about!

Synopsis:

The hottest trend in hot rodding is Pro/Touring--upgrading classic muscle cars with modern performance, handling, safety and comfort. This subject gets extensive coverage in magazines such as Hot Rod, Car Craft, Chevy High Performance, and other enthusiast publications. This book shows readers how to upgrade their classic Chevy, Pontiac, Buick, and Oldsmobile muscle cars in all areas--late-model fuel-injected engines, better brakes and suspension, hot interiors, and bodywork. Includes several "minifeatures" of well-known Pro/Touring cars for readers to use as examples.
