Pontiac's Great One by Darwin Holmstrom

Just got this excellent book by Darwin Holmstrom (photos by David Newhardt) about Pontiac's GTO. I am going through an automotive historical phase that includes more than my normal Mopar reference materials. I have always had a soft spot for Pontiac's GTO (and Firebird) and have recently become convinced that the 1967 GTO is one of the greatest muscle cars of all time, both in looks and performance. Of course my list of "Greatest Muscle Cars Of All-Time" is compsed almost entirely of Chrysler Products, with an occasional Mustang, GTO or Comet Cyclone thrown in here or there. This book is a great buy, with tons of researched historical information about "The Great One" as well as exceptional pictures, spanning the entire multi-decade GTO history.
