"In 1964, Joel Rosen set out to make muscle car history. Motion Performance tells the inside story of how it all happened, from racing Corvettes on the streets and drag strips of the East Coast to teaming up with Baldwin Chevrolet to create the legendary Baldwin-Motion supercars; from the EPA shutting th whole thing down to the whole thing being reborn forty years later with the debut of the Baldwin-Motion 540 Camaro SuperCoupe. Brilliantly illustrated with period pictures and modern color photos, this book takes readers on a wild ride as Cobras, Chevrolets, Oldsmobiles, even Volkswagen Beetles roll into the shop to get torn down and rebuilt into cars unbeatable on the streets and strips. It's a once-in-a-lifetime tale of power and speed, told by one of the principals who put that performance within everyone's reach."--Page 4 of cover.
