Golden Miles

Sex, speed and the Australian muscle car

Clinton Walker

Golden Miles
Golden Miles is a book about cars, people and Australia in the late 60s and early 70s. With the energy and irreverent humour of a fanzine, the acuity of investigative journalism, and the eye of an art book, this new, expanded edition of Golden Miles explores the archetypal product of Australian suburbia - the muscle car.

Praise for Golden Miles:
'... absorbing and enlightening.' - Judy Herbert, Advocate

'A rambling journey that's provocative and lavishly illustrated ... as much for pop culture lovers as rev heads.' - Sydney Morning Herald
