Pontiac's Greatest Decade, 1959-1969: The Wide Track Era covers a specific timeline in Pontiac's history. A decade when it jumped from middle of the sales pack to hold the coveted number three position behind Chevrolet and Ford. Pontiac never gave it up from 1961 until 1969. The incredible leadership of Bunkie Knudsen, Bob Estes, and John DeLorean helped propel Pontiac into this esteemed position. Starting with the Wide Track 1959 Catalina, in rapid succession came the 1961 Tempest, the 1962 Grand Prix, the 1964 GTO (which launched the musclecar era), the 1967 Firebird, and the 1969 Grand Prix. Pontiac's Greatest Decade, The Wide Track Era, captures the energy and the dynamic force of personality that ignited the spirit of Pontiac Motor Division and all of its employees, from designers and engineers to assembly line workers and dealers. No other book on Pontiac's history has captured the essence of the Wide Track era. Along with never-before-seen photographs, there are evaluations of the products and significant milestones in the company's history from 1959 to 1969. Production and pricing information are also included.

American road racing began just after World War II and quickly blossomed into a movement. The Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) and the United States Auto Club (USAC), clubs that became fierce rivals in the 1950s and 1960s, were the principal race promoters. Race tracks popped up everywhere, at first on city streets, then at airports and U.S. Air Force bases, and finally at purpose-built circuits like Road America and Laguna Seca.Although most of the cars that competed in American road racing were built in Europe, an underground movement sprang up of "special builders" who constructed their racers in home garages and small-town machine shops. Some were so homely and slow that only the builders could love them. Others trounced every Ferrari in sight and are now on the wish lists of wealthy collectors the world over.Vintage American Road Racing Cars 1950-1970 is the first book devoted exclusively to American road racing cars of all types and sizes. Hundreds of race cars built in America have never before been mentioned in print, and this book chronicles those and other cars with vintage and modern photography, specifications, memorabilia, and the stories and characters behind each car.About the AuthorHarold Pace's writing and photography has appeared in such magazines as Automobile Quarterly, Class & Sportscar, Excellence, Sports Car International, Vintage Racecar Journal, and others. He lives in Weatherford, Texas. Mark Brinker is a vintage race car enthusiast who has raced at the Monterey Historics. He is a doctor with three published medical textbooks and 70+ published scientific papers. He hails from Houston, Texas.

This fresh look at the Camaro includes first-hand reminisces of GM engineers and previously unpublished photos documenting the car's development.
