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.

Blackpool Trams and Recollections


Category: Bicycles
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.

Description: Famed for his love of motorcycles, Charley Boorman suffered a major road accident in Portugal in February, 2016. Having spent so much of his life on two wheels, the crash left him with a smashed right ankle, severe damage to his left fibia and tibia and serious concerns over whether he would be able to ride a motorbike again...

Category: Bicycles
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 perfect gift for anyone who's ever owned, been driven around in or hankered after one of these motoring icons. Word count: 15,000

Know Your Classic Tractors


Category: Bicycles
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.

British Family Cars Of The 1950s And 60s


Category: Bicycles
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.

Category: Bicycles
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.

Land Rover


Category: Bicycles
Description: Sunday Times Bestseller As quintessentially British as a plate of fish and chips or a British Bulldog, the boxy, utilitarian Land Rover Defender has become an iconic part of what it is to be British. 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.

Mini


Category: Bicycles
Description: The Mini, now an emblem of the Swinging Sixties, was in fact the product of an age of austerity and shortage, a simple design intended to make motoring more accessible and affordable for the average family. Ironically, it would become something very different: a modern, classless style icon that appealed across the boundaries of social status, age and gender and lent its name to everything from fashion to furniture. Using illustrations from the archives of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust, Gillian Bardsley here tells the Mini's story, from the inspired conception of designer Alec Issigonis, through the car's shaky infancy and up to its glorious heyday when it was beloved of film stars, royalty and the public, as well as having a prominent presence in motorsport.

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.

Triumph Sports Cars


Category: Bicycles
Description: In the 1950s and 1960s, British sports car ruled the road, and their charge was led by Triumphs. From the TR2, its first modern sports car, Triumph went on to produce a host of classic sports designs such as the Spitfire, GT, and Stag, as well as more TR models, ending with the TR7 in the late 1970s. These represented the epitome of the contemporary classic British sports car. Fast, nimble, and gorgeous to behold, Triumphs offered the everyday motorist an exhilarating drive at a price that they could afford. Popular both in the UK and the US, the Triumph range helped define the entire genre, with sports cars today like the Mazda MX-5 having their roots in models like the Stag. Illustrated throughout and written by acclaimed motoring writer and historian Graham Robson, this book guides the reader through the history of this classic British marque from its heyday in the 1960s and 1970s through to its eventual demise in the 1980s.

British Luxury Cars Of The 1950s And 60s


Category: Bicycles
Description: In the 1950s and 1960s, luxury car buyers, from government ministers to captains of industry, almost invariably bought British. These were stately, dignified, and grand vehicles, with many featuring leather interiors and wood trim. Unfortunately, that market has now largely disappeared and, with it, so have the car-makers themselves. This new book covers cars in the over-3-litre class from the biggest names in British luxury motoring including Alvis, Daimler, and Lagonda, and high-end models from Austin, Rover, and Jaguar. It examines the features and characteristics of these classic cars, as well as explaining why they fell from prominence in the 1970s. Replete with beautiful photography throughout, this book is a loving portrait of the British luxury car, a dearly missed saloon defeated by foreign imports.

The Road Haulage Industry


Category: Bicycles
Description: For hundreds of years, horses were the main way to transport goods across land, but in the twentieth century, first steam and then internal combustion engines revolutionised road haulage. Chris Woodcock charts the history of motor road haulage in Britain, featuring the design and development of the vehicles, competition from the railways, and the coming of the motorway age, the services that kept the trucker going, from garage to transport cafe, and the men themselves. Illustrated throughout with period photographs, this is a feast of nostalgia for anyone who has enjoyed a career in the industry, and a real eye opener for anyone who has not.

Vw Camper And Microbus


Category: Bicycles
Description: The Volkswagen Transporter is one of the best-loved and most recognisable motor vehicles of all time. The preferred transport for surfers and hippies everywhere, the Volkswagen Type 2 'bus' was born in 1950, the first of a new breed of vehicle, the ancestor of today's people carrier. Available in various versions, including panel van, pick up and minibus, the Transporter was often converted into campervans for a newly motorised class of holidaymaker. This book looks at the development, production and use of the class first, and second, generation Transporter. With archive illustrations including many colour photographs from old brochures this book is also a great evocation of the 1950s and 60s.

Tractors


Category: Bicycles
Description: Steam, and then cumbersome motor, tractors existed in small numbers before 1914, after which the need to produce more foods using less horse and man power saw the origins of the machine we know today. Thanks to mass production, Ford brought the price down to suit average farmers, and in the 1920s to 1940s numerous rivals brought in such novelties as diesel engines, pneumatic tyres, hydraulic implement lifts and even cost-effective all-wheel drive and weather protection. After the Second World- War, a strong new indigenous tractor industry was led by Ferguson, David Brown, Nuffield and Ford. This book highlights these developments and goes on to show the dramatic improvements of the 1950s and 1960s.
