Just got this one. Its huge! 444 pages and it weighs in at at least 7 lbs!

Lots of big colorful photos, too! Unfortunately, the book sucks!
Its filled with page after page of incorrect information, such as 1972 BOSS 351, a 1971 Mach 1 with a BOSS 'Hemi' engine, the 75-78 King Cobra, the 1970 429 King Cobra Torino that was "such a styling monstrosity, it never sold well enough to even keep track of how many were made."
There are many pages of customised cars represented as stock, such as super-charged 351 powered 87 GT, or how about a green 67 GT-500 convertible(?) with the 'flame' option??? Flames in mettalic green painted over the dark green car looks horrible.
Lots of these cars are from England, obvious by the license plates, and the author doesn't really seem to know much about the subject.
I bought it just because I buy EVERY book on Mustang I can find, but I wouldn't recommend it as a factual representation.
I was so aggravated that I wrote a nasty e-mail to the publisher...got no respense. Go figure.

That sounds like one I have, I'll have to look. I have one with all sort of greased over cars in it.

I saw that this weekend, and you are right! You could kill someone with that thing, it's so huge! Pictures are nice but what good are they if the info is wrong?

It wasn't the one I was thinking about like I stated in the post above, I don't have that one.
