In the 1960s, model kit building was a huge hobby. Kids built plastic kits of planes, tanks, race cars, space ships, creatures from scary movies, you name it. Before baseball card collecting, Pokémon, and video games, model kit building was one of the most popular hobby activities. Car and airplane kits were the most popular, and among the car kits, muscle cars, as we know them today, were one of the most popular categories. Many owners of real muscle cars today were not old enough to buy them when the cars were new, of course. Yet kids of the 1960s and 1970s worshiped these cars to an extent completely foreign to kids today. If you couldn’t afford or were too young to buy a muscle car back then, what could you do? For many, the next best thing was to buy, collect, and build muscle car kits from a variety of kit companies. Hundreds were made. Many of these kits have become collectible today, especially in original, unassembled form. Although people still build kits today, there is a broad market for collectors of nostalgic model kits. People love the kits for the great box art, to rekindle fond memories of building them 40 years ago, or even as a companion to the full-scale cars they own today. Here, world-leading authority Tim Boyd takes you through the entire era of muscle car kits, covering the options, collectability, variety availability, and value of these wonderful kits today. Boyd also takes you through the differences between the original kits, the older reproduction kits, and the new reproduction kits that many people find at swap meets today. If you are looking to build a collection of muscle car kits, interested in getting the kits of your favorite manufacturer or even just of the cars you have owned, this book will be a valuable resource in your model kit search.

The Story Behind Smokey Yunick's Boss Mustang is just one of 50 entertaining true stories from the collector car world. Smokey was racing's ultimate trickster. At one race the NASCAR sanction boys noted 16 infractions. With gas tank removed after the inspection, he grinned. "Make that 17," he said and drove away, having plumbed the roll bar for additional gas storage. Although not the story of the Boss 302 herein, these are the kind of anecdotes that make this book a fun read and more than just facts about barn-finds. Book #3 in this incredible new collection of automotive 'barn finds and beyond' stories include... A persistent Porsche mechanic who asked each 904 owner if their car would be for sale after a race. He paid only $7,000 to one agreeable owner and the car recently sold for over a million dollars... Celebrities like Steve McQueen, who bought a Jaguar XK-SS, originally created for the track but turned into a street car by the factory, now worth $10 million!... A photographer who always wondered why his Mercedes gullwing was a little different. He sold it for under $8,000 only to find out decades later that the chassis was from a Le Mans winner in '52. A luckier later owner rebodied it, probably worth $20 million today.

Aside from Ferraris, no model of old car is rocketing up in value as much as the 356 "bathtub" Porsches, which made their debut in 1949 when they were being hand built in a converted sawmill in Gmund, Austria. Wallace Wyss, author of the incredible Barn Find series, decided to take the best pictures from his long out-of-print Porsche 356 Photo Album and add additional new pictures to a new version, including freshly shot ones from recent Porsche events, including Rennfest, to provide a visual guide to all he different variations. It starts with the all aluminum ones from Gmund, then then goes into the pre-A, the A, the B, and the C. The frosting on the cake is new visual coverage of the factory race cars such as the Carrera Abarth GT/L, the SL356 cars and the "three pointed scrapers." Porsches built by outside coachbuilders such as Glockler and Beutler are also included. Wyss also applied his considerable historian skills to write an 8,000 word history of the 356 starting with the very first car and ending with the last. If you are new to the subject of 356s, this book gives you a generous overview, as well as an inkling as to why they are now bring so sought after by a new generation of collectors, with the Carrera models leading the way.

DIVIt’s every motorcyclist’s dream. A friend or acquaintance says, “You know, there’s an old bike that’s been sitting in this garage for years.” The hunt is on. And rather than the usual worthless Hondazukimaha pile of hopeless oxidation, at the back of that barn you find a genuine classic, the motorcycle collector’s dream. The Vincent in the Barn tells forty such stories--tales of motorcycle hunting dreams come true. From Ducatis in basements to Vincents abandoned in sheds, Harleys in barns to Brit bikes moldering behind urban garages, these are the stories that fuel every motorcyclist’s fantasies. The only difference? They’re true.

It's hard to imagine that a car with the racing pedigree of the Rebel Corvette could be neglected to the point of it being lost. Winning the GT class at the 1972 12 Hours of Sebring wasn't enough to keep this car from becoming just another old wreck out behind the shed. It was many years before Kevin Mackay came to rescue this prominent machine. Finding, documenting, restoring, and selling rare and valuable Corvettes is one of Mackay's specialties. His business, Corvette Repair Inc., is considered the premier Corvette restoration facility in the country. However, it just wasn’t the Rebel L88 Corvette that he found and restored. Mackay tells story after story of finding and restoring valuable Corvettes such as the 1960 Briggs Cunningham Le Mans racer that took 1st in class. He also tells stories of Steve McQueen's 1966 Corvette, the 1967 Bounty Hunter racer, 1968 Sunray DX #2 and #3, and chassis #003 from 1953. If you like L88 Corvettes, no one has bought and restored more of them than Kevin Mackay! Few authorities in the hobby could be counted on to provide this much entertainment in a single volume.

This is Wyss' fourth book in the popular "Beyond Barn Finds" series. While true "barn find" stories are interesting, how can you top the following ... A Beverly Hills socialite, originally from Texas, dressed in a negligee, actually was buried seated at the wheel of her beloved Ferrari V12--the very same one that she had crashed weeks before her death. Schemers have been cogitating on how to liberate the Ferrari ever since... This is just one of fifty tales from the front lines of car collecting corralled by Wallace Wyss for his latest book in the Way Beyond Barn Finds series. The books are also multi-marque. "Wyss selects those stories which are most entertaining, regardless of marque," says the publisher. In book 4, for instance, there are chapters on a Ferrari race car that went about Europe racing with a Porsche body on it, a Corvette show car that may or may not still exist, a full custom Caddy created for "Mack the Knife" singer Bobby Darin, Clint Eastwood's Ferrari Boxer targa and many more.

When Rhetta McCarter's '79 Camaro is destroyed in a fire, her best friend and mechanic Victoria (Ricky) Lane, finds a replacement, a "barnfind" vintage Camaro in perfect condition, except for one major flaw: a body buried beneath it. Later, Ricky is arrested when a second victim is found murdered in the same barn. Rhetta is convinced not only that Ricky is innocent, but that the two murders are connected. The police don't agree, so Rhetta is forced to fight her way through a labyrinth of danger and misdirection to find the real murderer before the killer finds her first.
