European Style with American Muscle
by Mike Gulett
A review of "European Style with American Muscle" by Martyn L. Schorr.
If you’re like me and passionately love European-style sports cars and GTs powered by powerful, reliable and durable American engines, Mike Gulett’s latest e-book, "European Style with American Muscle", belongs in your library.
While not overly heavy on text, it’s packed from cover to cover with great information and quality color photography of some of the most exciting Hybrids to have come out of Italy, France, Switzerland and the UK. Mike breaks down the field into 25 chapters, covering the usual suspects plus cars that you have probably never heard of. And, if you are familiar with the marques, you may not have realized American engines powered them. For example, Brough Superior (Hudson chassis and naturally-aspirated and supercharged Sixes), Ginetta (Ford Four and V8s) and Gordon-Keeble (Chevy V8).
It’s also highly-recommended for car enthusiasts who may think that there are only a few vintage European and British nameplates - Allard, AC, Pantera, Iso, Bizzarrini, Jensen, etc., that have relied on American powerplants. Actually Mike covers 25 brands some that will really surprise you.
"European Style with American Muscle" is a great read and puts a whole new focus on Hybrids!
Martyn L. Schorr wrote the book on Baldwin-Motion, “Motion Performance: Tales of a Muscle Car Builder” (Motorbooks).
