Category: Bicycles
Description: The aim of this series is to appeal to readers of all ages, perhaps for different reasons... In this volume: We travel back to the year 1958 For the younger reader there are wonderful pictures of trains, real trains. There will, for example, be tank engines, steam engines, electric trains and multiple units and many more varieties besides! Some will be recognised from train sets, model railways and books, while others will be seen for the first time. For the older reader the books are designed to build into a collection placing the railway in the context of key events thus providing an historical perspective of travel in times past. For those old enough to remember the years depicted, the series will, we hope, provide reminders for many of school days, time perhaps spent train-spotting, shed bashing and generally gricing! The books also make ideal theme gifts for the year of birth, marriage, retirement, starting work and other such events in life.

Hants and Dorset Recollections


Category: Bicycles
Description: In March 1916 Bournemouth & District Motor Services was registered as a company; expansion of the business a few years later meant this title no longer represented the area served, so from July 1920 the Company became Hants & Dorset Motor Services Limited. One of the best known and best loved transport operators in Southern England, Hants & Dorset's green buses were a familiar sight for over 50 years before they were repainted red during the National Bus Company era in the early 1970s. The Hants & Dorset name disappeared from the sides of buses in April 1983, but the services have continued under new names and flourish in the 21st century. This book celebrates the 100 years from 1916 to 2016 with a series of evocative photographs that capture the flavour of the time when they were taken, and brings the story up to date with a brief look at part of the business that still carries the Hants & Dorset name in 2016.

Description: The 68th volume in this growing series taking a nostalgic look at Britain's transport heritage... The aim of this series is to appeal to readers of all ages, perhaps for different reasons... In this volume: We travel back once again to the year 1973 for the second of a two part nostalgic look at the street scenes of Blackpool, Bispham and Fleetwood, the places in between and in particular the tramway system as it was at the time. ( Part 1 is No 67 in the series) For the younger reader there are wonderful pictures of trams, cars and other forms of road transport that they will never have seen. For the older reader the books in the Recollections series are designed to build into a collection placing road transport and other subjects in the context of key events, thus providing an historical perspective of Britain in times past. For those old enough to remember 1973, this book will, we hope, provide reminders for many of school days, time spent in Blackpool on holiday or on a day trip, perhaps even time spent tram spotting! Of course not everyone has been to Blackpool and for them we hope the images within will still resonate through the fashions, the adverts, the vehicles and so much more of a time now over 40 years ago when daily life was so very different. The books in the series also make ideal theme gifts for the year of birth, marriage, retirement, starting work and other such events in life.

Wilts and Dorset Recollections


Category: Bicycles
Description: The 75th volume in this growing series taking a nostalgic look at Britain's transport heritage... When Edwin Coombes started a bus service between Amesbury and Salisbury via the Woodford Valley, he used the title Wilts & Dorset. At that time the Wilts & Dorset Bank had recently been absorbed into Lloyds Bank, and Coombes, not wanting to see the old name disappear completely, used it for his bus service. Wilts & Dorset Motor Services Limited was registered at Companies House in January 1915, and the company's red buses were soon a familiar sight in Salisbury and the surrounding area. Following nationalisation in 1948, Wilts & Dorset acquired control of Venture at Basingstoke in January 1951, which resulted in the company's buses running on a number of routes that went nowhere near Wiltshire or Dorset. In 1972 the Wilts & Dorset name disappeared from the sides of buses when the company was subsumed into Hants & Dorset, but the title reappeared 11 years later with the Wilts & Dorset Bus Company being formed when Hants & Dorset was divided into smaller units in 1983. This book illustrates the eventful story of Wilts & Dorset Motor Services and the Wilts & Dorset Bus Company, not forgetting the 11-year period when the buses ran under the Hants & Dorset name. It also brings the narrative up to date, illustrating the development of the Wilts & Dorset Bus Company into Salisbury Reds and Morebus.

Description: A nostalgic A- Z of the most special and well-remembered 60s, 70s and 80s cars, with stylish illustrations accompanied by warm, humorous personal memories. Designer and illustrator Roy Mc Carthy explores the cars that made a big impression on him in his younger days, from the sludge-coloured, disappointing Austin Allegro his father brought home in 1975 to the Ford Zephyr he coveted from afar on the way to school. The evocative, colourful illustrations form a visual feast of late 20th-century driving, featuring all the cars drivers of a certain age will remember: the Hillman Imp, the Triumph Dolomite, the Opel Kadett, the Renault 5, and even the lowly Yugo 45 - a whole alphabet's worth, in fact!

The aim of this series is to appeal to readers of all ages, perhaps fordifferent reasons... In this volume, the first of an occasional 64-page version in the series, we travel back to Scotland in the years 1963 and 1964 to take a nostalgic look at the street scenes in locations throughout the country.

For the younger reader there are wonderful pictures of buses, coaches, trolleybuses, cars and other forms of road transport that they will never have seen.

For those old enough to remember 1963/64, this book will, we hope, provide reminders for many of schooldays, time spent on holiday or on a day trip, perhaps even time spent on these very streets and riding on the vehicles featured!

Muscle Cars


Category: Bicycles
Description: In 2010, a 1970 Plymouth Superbird fetched $286,000 at an auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. In 2009, a 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda sold for $2.16 million. Auctions of classic cars in general and muscle cars in particular routinely garner upwards of $39 million annually. Since their debut in the early 1960s, Americans have been in love with the horsepower under the hood of muscle cars like the GTO, Camaro, and Mustang. From their origins in Detroit, muscle cars became the stuff of dreams for millions of baby boomers. Car buff and historian Colin Romanick lifts the hood on these classics in Muscle Cars, covering everything from legendary automotive icons like John De Lorean and Lee Iacocca to the differences between muscle cars and pony cars to the relationship between street cars and racing cars. Romanick also looks at the economic environmental effects of the 1970s that brought an end to the muscle car era.

Description: The latest addition to the popular ' Know Your - ' series, Chris Lockwood's Know Your Classic Tractors features 41 examples that indicate the range of tractors that can be called classics. The classic period of tractor production arrived in the mid-1960s, with ranges such as Ford's 1000 series and the Massey Ferguson 135. Tractors were now true workhorses, with more power, more reliability, and greater driver comfort. Their drivers fell in love with them, and many continue to work today. Alphabetically, the 41 tractors range from Belarus to Zetor with several examples from each of the major manufacturers such as Case, International and John Deere - although some 26 famous names are included. Each tractor featured has a full-page photograph (all pictured in their 'working clothes') opposite which Chris' text provides some technical details of the machines as well as background about the company and the tractor range. Know Your Classic Tractors is ideal for novice enthusiasts who will learn something about David Brown, Dow, Leyland and County - as well as more exotic names such as Same and Steiger.

Description: With the end of the Second World War it was not long before increasing wealth, cheaper cars, and social pressures made a family car the aspiration of thousands. Ford, Hillman, Standard, Morris and Vauxhall became household names, and the streets of Britain's suburbs began to fill with modern-looking saloon cars, designed to transport mother, father and 2.4 children with ease, if not speed. This highly-illustrated book looks at the British cars that were available to the post-war family, and also some of the foreign makes that had an important place in the market, and which had a great influence on the British-made cars that followed.

Description: Few cars have achieved the iconic status of Volkswagen's classic and much-loved Beetle - yet its origins are intertwined with the dark days of Nazism. This book looks at those origins, at the marque's initial post-war rescue by the British and the effect of early VW Director General Heinz Nordhoff's forward-looking desire to perfect one model rather than spread the company's talent over a range of designs, at the impact of radical-minded advertising campaigns and at the Beetle's never-to-be-beaten production record for a single model of nearly 22 million cars. Bringing the reader right up to the present day, marque expert Richard A. Copping recounts the Beetle's story in a lively and authoritative manner guaranteed to delight devotee and casual browser alike.

It is said that for more than half the world's population, the first car they ever saw was a Land Rover Defender. It mirrors many of our national traits, stiff upper-lipped and slightly eccentric. The car has remained relatively unchanged for nearly seven decades and has spawned an industry that includes dozens of publications, car shows, clubs, associations and even model car collectors who dedicate their lives to the Land Rover. To understand this national love affair, Ben has travelled the length of the British Isles in a Defender, spending time with fellow Land Rover enthusiasts: from visiting Colonel Blashford- Snell, who crossed the jungles of the Darien Gap, to patrolling the streets of Belfast with the Police Service of Northern Ireland ( PSNI). Ben has met folk who have converted their beloved Defenders into everything from hearses and coffee shops to works of art and fire trucks. He has travelled from the Red Wharf in Anglesey, Wales onto the Western Isles of Scotland and Islay, the island used as a testing ground by Spencer Wilks in 1947 to put several of the early Series Land Rover prototypes through their paces. After 67 years and 2 million vehicles the Land Rover Defender has ceased production, and this book is a fitting tribute to this most British institution which has stood as a beacon of durability and Britishness across the world. Every Land Rover has its own unique story to tell. This is the story of the world's favourite car.

Description: Sir William Lyons enjoyed a seemingly unstoppable rise to fame and fortune in the motor industry, and the Jaguar brand that he introduced became world-famous. Yet it did not happen overnight. In the 1920s he was in Blackpool, styling motorcycle sidecars, and in the 1930s in Coventry developing the SS motor car, with the stand-alone Jaguar company not appearing until 1945. The company's success was aided by the amazing new XK engine of 1948, by motor racing success at Le Mans, and by the stunning styling of cars like the XK120, the Mk 2 saloons and the extraordinary E- Type. Graham Robson here explores the history of the Jaguar company and its many classic marques.

British Sports Cars Of The 1950s And 60s

British Sports Cars Of The 1950s And 60s


Category: Bicycles
Description: E-type Jaguar; Triumph Spitfire; MGA; Austin- Healey - nobody built sports cars like British manufacturers in the 1950s and '60s. There was something very special about the combination of low-slung open two-seater bodywork and spartan interior, a slick sporting gearchange and a throaty exhaust note. This was wind-in-the-hair motoring, and it was affordable by the average young man - at least, until he got married and had a family. MG and Triumph stood out as the market leaders, but many other c companies thrived, from luxury manufacturers like Jaguar and even daimler to other more affordable marques. This colourfully illustrated history tells the exciting story of the British sports car in the 1950s and '60s.

And On That Bombshell


Category: Bicycles
Description: I was Top Gear's script editor for 13 years and all 22 series. I basically used to check spelling and think of stupid gags about The Stig. I also got to hang around with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. It didn't feel like something you should get paid for. From the disastrous pilot show of 2002 to the sudden and unexpected ending in 2015, working on Top Gear was quite a rollercoaster ride. We crossed continents, we made space ships, we bobbed across the world's busiest shipping lane in a pick-up truck. We also got chased by an angry mob, repeatedly sparked fury in newspapers, and almost killed one of our presenters. I realised that I had quite a few stories to tell from behind the scenes on the show. I remembered whose daft idea it was to get a dog. I recalled the willfully stupid way in which we decorated our horrible office. I had a sudden flashback to the time a Bolivian drug lord threatened to kill us. I decided I should write down some of these stories. So I have. I hope you like them. And now, a quote from James May: ' Richard Porter has asked me to write a quote for his new book about the ancient history of Top Gear. But this is a ridiculous request. How can one write a quote? Surely, by definition, a quote must be extracted from a greater body of writing, for the purpose of illustrating or supporting a point in an unrelated work. I cannot write a quote any more than I could film an out-take. ' Porter, like Athens, has lost his marbles.'

Morris Minor


Category: Bicycles
Description: The Morris Minor was a much-loved car while it was in production and has remained popular as a classic car, with many clubs devoted to keeping it on the road. Though retrospectively it has gained a rather 'homely' reputation, at its launch in 1948 it was an exciting and fresh concept, with radical engineering and daring ' American' styling. Morris Motors had given a young engineer named Alec Issigonis his first chance to head up a design team and, though he would become most famous for the Mini ten years later, the Morris Minor was just as innovative in its period. Behind the car's success, however, lies a fascinating behind-the-scenes story of the battle to get into production in the face of opposition from the company's founder and chairman, Lord Nuffield. Illustrated with period illustrations - many of them in colour - from the BMC archive, this is the perfect introduction to this iconic car.
