For millions of TV viewers, Steve Magnante has been an integral part of the Barrett-Jackson collector car auctions, sharing his wealth of knowledge on American muscle cars. Steve is also world renowned as an author of books like Rusted Muscle, 1001 Muscle Car Facts and also for his 8 years as Technical Editor for the iconic HOT ROD Magazine. If you’re like Steve, the sight of a junkyard – ANY junkyard – stops you in your tracks. You’ve GOT to get inside and see what’s there. Then you will love to tag along with Steve on his newest video adventures in The Junkyard Crawl!
Hey everybody, keep an eye out for my new book, Steve Magnante’s 1,001 Muscle Car Trivia Facts, which will be available in June, 2013. It is published by CarTech Books and will be available at major book stores as well as the usual online outlets (Amazon, eBay, etc.). On display here is what the publishing industry calls a “cover dummy” – a.k.a. an approximation of what the actual book cover will look like. I’m jazzed to have had the legendary illustrator and cartoonist George Trosley, prepare the art. I’ve seen the full color finalized book cover and it is even cooler! Speaking of cover dummies, I spent a brutal 8 months researching and writing this book (actually I loved every minute of it). Inside, there are 11 chapters, each is packed with neat trivia on muscle cars from Chevy, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Buick, Ford, Mercury, Dodge, Plymouth, Chrysler, AMC and Studebaker…yes Studebaker! Keep an eye out for this fun 144 page book this Spring!
