Books - Proving Ground, A History Of Dodge, Chrysler and Plymouth Racing (Authors: Schild)
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine There is little argument that motorsport has served as a fantastic test bed for vehicle technology since the dawn of motoring as owners and manufacturers have sought to prove that their vehicle is the fastest, most reliable or most fuel efficient, or ideally all of these. Chryslerís involvement in organised racing goes back to 1925 when the company was only a year old and one of their sporting cars finished a fine seventh at Le Mans and within a few short years Chrysler had acquired Dodge and launched the Plymouth brand along with a spare parts division named Motor Parts. Mopar has long been a watchword for high performance in the USA and this reputation was built on the stock car ovals and on the drag strips. The legendary Hemi V8s have powered all manner of machines from Lands Speed Record attempts, through power boats and even short oval Sprint cars. This fascinating and superbly illustrated volume takes us through that rich history though we are a little surprised that the section on the Viper seems to concentrate on club racing cars in America and not the serious competition at Daytona, Le Mans etc in which they enjoyed a fair degree of success.
Over the years we have created a library here at GPM and many collectors regularly ask us which books we use most and which are the most reliable source of information. We offer quality titles selected for their reference material content.
