Unrestricted cars, outrageous designs, monster engines, and very high speeds were all hallmarks of the Can-Am sports car series races. Professional teams the likes of Chaparral, McLaren and Shadow, and top drivers Andretti, Foyt, Jones, Hulme and Surtees provided Can-Am racing the attention it deserved. This well-written, pictorial history recounts the series' story through the races, designs, engineering, personalities, and cars from 1966-74. "The definitive work on the best race series that ever was..." AutoWeek. Winner of the 1996 Moto Award Bronze Medallion.
