Book Description Pack your 8-tracks and platform shoes and hustle back to a decade when muscle cars died, economy cars were born, and disco was the dance. While 1970 ushered in
some of the finest and fasted cars ever, regulations and gas prices turned muscle into economy. Award-winning author Patrick R. Foster guides readers on a trip through a tumultuous decade in automotive history. Witness the demise of big block gas-guzzlers and convertibles and the near-demise of the Chrysler Corporation. Relive the birth of the American subcompact, custom vans, t-tops and a new aesthetic. Remember Pintos, Pacers, Vegas, X-bodies, and the proliferation of front-wheel drive-hallmarks of the 70s auto-evolution. Foster doesn't stop with the hot cars. To put it all into perspective, he stops along the way to sample the music, movies and manias that made the 70s sensational. -A fabulous decade of American automobile history. -More than 400 photos of the decade's greatest cars and culture, including movies, music and trends.
