Pontiac's Great OneBook - 2009
In 1963, Pontiac's Chief Engineer John DeLorean and his two favorite staff engineers came up with an inspired way to keep Pontiac cars in the performance limelight: bolt a big engine into Pontiac's upcoming Tempest intermediate body. Thus was the GTO born. Through cunning, resourcefulness, and outright trickery the minds of Pontiac managed to get this rocket into dealerships and out onto America's highways, and to introduce that most iconic of American automobiles, the muscle car, to the world, and start a revolution in car design, driving, and racing. This is the story of the GTO, of the people who made it a reality and a sales sensation, of those who owned and loved it. Full of stunning archive and contemporary photographs, technical details, construction progress, and with a full behind-the-scenes history, this is the book on the Muscle car.
