is available online from
Ford Taurus is the first in a series of Racecar Tech books that
concentrates on the one specific model of car at a time.. This series
will be to car modellers what the Warbird Tech series is to aircraft
And what a fantastic book this is. It covers the NASCAR Ford Taurus
which replaced the Thunderbird in 1998. More than 300 photos are
provided of the car as well as garage and pit shots. These are perfect reference for a diorama setting or to super detail a model.
The book has seven chapters which cover the history of Ford and NASCAR,
Chassis, Body, Interior, Suspension, Engine & Drive Train and The Taurus
on the Track.
Two Appendices are included. One is a Modeler's Resource which
provides a summary of available kits, aftermarket parts and decals.
The second Appendix covers both stock and NASCAR Taurus
specifications and Ford NASCAR Winston Cup Wins from 1949 to 2003.
Each chapter has explains in technical detail, and with the help of
pictures, every aspect of this car, from the shell being built to the
fate that awaits "old cars", is well covered in entertaining style.
