Editorial Reviews

Old Cars Weekly News & Marketplace - Ken Gross
"To illustrate the Hurst's past and present, the authors relied on vintage illustrations and photos, as well as modern photography that takes readers through Hurst-equipped Pontiacs, Hurst/Olds masterpieces, Hurst AMC products and, of course, Hurst Mopar all the way up to the new Challenger and Chrysler 300C.... the hardbound Hurst Equipped does a great job of recalling the golden eras of Hurst in its 160 pages. And, at $39.95, it's a bargain compared to the outdated original book." -Old Cars Weekly, November 22, 2012
Muscle Car Review - Drew Hardin
"Fletcher and Truesdell pack a lot of information and history into a fairly brief volume, not an easy trick considering the breadth and depth of George Hurst's influence on the automotive scene. Period photos and advertisements mix with contemporary photos of some of Hurst's key projects-- the Hemi Under Glass Baracuda, SC/Rambler, Hurst/Olds-- in a concise history that runs right up to today's limited-edition muscle cars." -Muscle Car Review, January 2013
Keith Martin's American Car Collector - Wigginton Mark

speedreaders.info - Sabu Advani
"Don't pass this book by because it has muscle cars on the cover! Hurst was so much more than performance parts and racecars. This is the first-ever look at the company and its many products and, at least a little bit, the man himself." -speedreaders.info, January 2013
Hemmings Muscle Machines - Jim Donnelly
July 2013 issue of HPP, page 10; short review and photo of leather-bound version listing CarTech's info as place to get standard hardbound version
