Many of the most popular cars of the muscle era came from General Motors. Spread across the General's various marques were models like the Camaro, Chevelle, GTO, Cutlass, Skylark, Tempest, Impala, Monte Carlo, El Camino, and many others. This book will provide 101 hands-on, how-to projects aimed directly at fans of classic GM muscle, showing them how to do just the kinds of projects that they want to do: restoration of the exterior and interior, and performance upgrades to the engine, driveline, and suspension.The existence of many large aftermarket companies provides evidence of the vast potential audience for this book. Restoration and performance part companies like Year One, National Parts Depot, Summit Racing, Jegs, and Original Parts Group count on this audience to provide a large portion of their business. For example, Original Parts Group, which specializes exclusively in parts for GM A-body muscle cars, sells an average of $100,000 worth of parts each day. Primedia alone has six magazines that serve this crowd (Hot Rod, Car Craft, Chevy High Performance, High Performance Pontiac, Popular Hot Rodding, Super Chevy) with a combined circulation of 1.7 million readers per month.Like the 101 series books before it, this book provides an immense quantity of do-it-yourself projects that are accessible to the at-home mechanic who has a good set of hand tools and a place to work. Procedures will be performed on specific GM cars of this era, which differed more in sheetmetal and trim than in the functional components, which were often similar or identical from car to car.

Let me lead off by saying that I bought this book used for $1.00 and all in it cost me $5.00 with shipping which was too much for what it offers.

I have restored my share of Muscle Cars over the years and I am fairly skilled when it comes to 68-72 GM A bodies. This book should have been titled 101 "suggestions" not projects. There is absolutely not enough information within any of these projects to give you a feel or guidance to what you are getting yourself into.

For example, there is one project titled upholstery. For laughs, it has a time frame indicator of a few hours (I don't have the book in front of me, but I think it quoted 2 hours labor) and the only pictures it shows is the bottom of a seat to show where the hog rings are and another to show you a pair of hog ring pliers. It is a total of two pages long. If anyone reading this has ever attempted replacing seat covers, you know it can take 2 hours to carefully disassemble a bucket seat, let alone clean, repair and begin replacing the covers. I have seen more in depth information in magazine articles. I didn't even bother reading the sections on engine and head rebuilding and I hope no one else gearing up for such a project does either.

I realize you may have another opinion of this book, but I can honestly say that of all the literature on restorations I have bought over the years, this was positively useless.

Kind of basic information. I mainly got it for the rear deck replacement. Still some good info all together.

Very practical if a bit light in some places.

If you pay for this book, you paid too much! Though I assumed some techniques how to fix things would have been discussed, this book is about as vague as one can get on automotive repair. There are 256 pages to explain 101 topics, with large color photos taking up at least 1/2 of each page you're really only getting about 1-2 pages of explanation for each project. Not nearly enough to actually do the job.

For instance, brake booster and master cylinder is covered in one of the 101. It states the obvious, drain brake fluid, unbolt old, bolt in new, bleed brakes, but that's about it. It doesn't even mention that you will first need to bench bleed the master cylinder before you bolt it on. This whole book is like this, lacking in important information. If you're a beginner and you buy this book I guarantee you'll be more lost than if you didn't buy this book. And if you're not a beginner, you'll be frustrated by the lack of detail.

This book has many large colored pictures and explains the very basics in as few words as possible. About the only audience this book has is the car guy who never actually works on his own car who wants to be able to get an idea what's involved in the projects he's paying someone else to perform.

Unless you can get this book for a song, FORGET IT! The "projects" are, at best, extreamly vague. Each "project" is explained within two pages. When you add photos to those pages it does not leave much space for things like details. As an example, Project 3 "Removing, Inspecting, and Refinishing the Steering Column" consists of 12 short paragraphs on what is actually a pretty significant project (especially for an amateur restorer). One sentence states: "Then, remove the turn signal lever and the ignition cylinder lock." That is all the instruction there is. Whereas, removing the turn signal lever is quite simple, removing the ignition lock cylinder has driven experienced mechanics crazy. On the other hand, I liked the two pages dedicated to reinforcing floorboards using POR-15 paint, it's just too bad the authors failed to explain POR-15's dual coat painting system that requires waiting 15 minute between separate paint coats. One would have to read the POR-15 instructions for that information, and that requirement negates the usefulness (if there really is any) of this book. Motorbooks strikes out again.
I ordered this book along with How to Restore Your Muscle Car. Overall its a good book, with lots of projects that are broken down and organized well. The projects don't go as in depth as, say a factory shop manual, but give you an idea of what you need for parts, tools, and the like. If you have a muscle car and want to know about some upgrades you can do to the engine, or if you want to know how to take off some of the stainless trime, etc this is the book for you. Its a great supplement to any other "how to" books you may already own.
