Overall Review:  

Do you have a teen who's a car buff? This book on the muscle cars of the 1960s has full color photos and basic information on these fast and flashy cars.

The book spends a little time on the dangers of street racing and notes that street racers today will be fined and their licenses suspended.

The short text is broken up with photos, captions and sidebars. Most readers will likely leaf through the book, pausing to read about cars, engines, racers and designers of interest to them. A winner for reluctant readers!

Reading Level: 9.7, range 7.8-10.3.

Also good for reluctant readers

Of interest to boys and girls.
