The Cars of Trans-Am 1966-1973 Racing by David Tom
Latest publication as of February 2013 is David Toms book for the T/A niche market. Though we haven't read it yet or handy to do a review or even recommend it, it looks interesting to add to your collection.

David has still 9 signed copies (Bud Moore and himself), if you want to have a special one. Contact him via

The hardcover print will be soon sold out. Grab your chance (Dec. 2014)

Racing Mustangs by Dr. John Craft

The title picture of this books is  misleading, as the content is more than 90% about the classic Mustang Trans Am Racing History. Dr. John Craft is a famous Mustang historian that has reputation for accuracy and coverage of worldwide Falcons & Mustangs racing past. This is another hot tip as of August 2002, when it was published. Make sure you get hold of this book, although it will be probably readily available based on the minor marketing mistake with the pic.

Trans Am by David Friedman

David Friedman was not only the official Shelby American photographer, but kept an eye on other cars as well. He lets his photographs very often speak for themselves in any of his bestselling books. The same applies for the Trans Am book about the Pony Car Wars of 1966-1972.

NO SHOW - TRANS AM 1966-1972
Unfortunately this interesting book by Tim Tuttle and Daniel Lipetz never made it into the distribution. Still listed online somewhere, the Lipetz family receives requests for it once and then,but it remains unavailable until further notice.

We hope it makes its way once to the public
