Road Hogs: Detroit's Big,Beautiful Luxury Performance of the 1960's and 1970's. Not Politically Correct And I Love it! Although there is one part where the author jokes about George W Bush's Grammar or lack there of and another quip about Having A 427 Corvette or being an owner of one you won't enjoy as much as one of these Big Beasts(I Disagree with that as well,Being A Huge Corvette Fan.)Other than that,Mr.Peters wrote and put together a great book full of funny bits not about the Big Cars but on how puny modern Small cars and how Sissified Cars have become, using terms such as "SafetyN a z i s",These Bad Berthas and Behemoths are rolling pieces of Art,Although being a Child of the 80's I do recall experiencing/seeing some,My Aunt Had a Lincoln Continental,Black 2 Door with an Opera Window that was stolen.You have Cars in Here like The Pontiac GrandVille,(No Grand Prix though sadly which were big my dad had one a Big Block),Safari Wagon/Grand Safari/LeMans Safari, Ford LTD,Galaxie 500/XL/LTD Convertible(like The Omega Man Car)Country Squire Wagon(Remember The Family Truckster from National Lampoon?)Pontiac Catalina(My Uncle and Grandpa had several)Cadillac Eldorado,Coupe deVille,Sedan deVille,Fleetwood Sixty or 75 Limo,Chrysler Imperial/Imperial and Chrysler New Yorker,Cordoba and a nice 79' Cordoba 300,Buick Estate Wagon(No Century covered?)
Chevy Monte Carlo(again No Pontiac Grand Prix?)Buick Electra 225,Chevy Impala/Caprice(sadly the "Urban Crowd" here in Miami jacks them up on 26-30' Wheels call em' Donks,the opposite of a lowrider- hideous),Amc Matador(remember James Bond Movie the Man with the Golden Gun?)Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser,Chevy Kingswood(a Favorite of Mine)the Classy Buick Riviera,Lincoln Continental,and My Favorite(besides the Kingswood,Monte,Riv and Caddy) the Rare Under rated Chevrolet Laguna (1973-76)and Laguna Type S-3,all of these cars are the ones featured but not in this order,Although I wish it would have more Pictures than brochures, the book did not disappoint me,In Modern Times when a Nanny State wants to ban Soda and what's bad for the Consumer without giving the Consumer the Right for him/her to Consume what he/she wants the book is a Godsend,Thank You Eric Peters & Motorbooks/MBI.
