Road Hogs: Detroit's Big, Beautiful Luxury Performance Cars of the 1960s and 1970s
by Eric Peters
Climb into one of America’s classic luxury cars from the 1960s and 1970s, swaddle yourself in yards and yards of fine Corinthian leather, scan the gigantic dashboard filled with esoteric dials and gauges that you can never hope to understand, twist the oversized ignition key, and listen to those coffee-can-sized pistons crank over in that enormous V-8 lurking under that vast expanse of hood. Feel that throbbing power burbling beneath an accelerator pedal the size of a Japanese hotel room, and you’ll know what once made the American auto industry great. Road Hogs celebrates this greatness, as expressed through the magnificent performance luxury cars that rolled out of Detroit during the classic era, like the Cadillac Eldorado, Chrysler 300, Buick Electra, Chevy Monte Carlo, Buick Riviera, and many more.
