Buses Coaches and Recollections 1974


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 1974, as ever an eventful year, that included:* Terracotta Army discovered * West Germany win the World Cup * Gerald Ford becomes US President * Rubik's Cube invented For the younger reader there are wonderful pictures of buses and coaches that they will never have seen. There will, for example, be half-cab single and double deckers the like of which are no longerin production.

For the older reader the books are designed to build into a collection placing road transport in the context of key events, thus providing an historical perspective of travel in times past.

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.

A Is For Allegro


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

Blackpool Trams and Recollections 1972


Category: Bicycles
Description: The 69th 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 to the year 1972 for a 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. 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 1972, 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.

It is fully illustrated with pictures of the bikes and those who have ridden them as well as examples of Harley- Davidson's distinctive design aesthetic in advertising and collectibles.

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.

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.

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.

Clarkson On Cars


Category: Bicycles
Description: Jeremy Clarkson gets under the bonnet in Clarkson on Cars; a collection of his motoring journalism. Jeremy Clarkson has been driving cars, writing about them and occasionally voicing his opinions on the BBC's Top Gear for twenty years. No one in the business is taller. In this collection of classic Clarkson, stretching back to the mid-1980s, he's pulled together the car columns and stories with which he made his name. As coal mines closed and house prices exploded to a soundtrack of men in make-up playing synthesizers, Jeremy was already waxing lyrical on topics as useful and diverse as: the perils of bicycle ownership; why Australians - not Brits - need bull bars; why soon only geriatrics will be driving BMWs; the difficultly of deciding on the best car for your wedding; why Jesus' dad would have owned a Nissan Bluebird; and why it is that bus lanes cause traffic jams. Irreverent, damn funny and offensive to almost everyone, this is writing with its foot to the floor, the brake lines cut and the speed limit smashed to smithereens.

In The World According to Clarkson, one of the country's funniest comic writers has free reign to expose absurdity, celebrate eccentricity and entertain richly in the process. And the net is cast wide: from the chronic unsuitablity of men to look after children for long periods or as operators of 'white goods', Nimbyism, cricket and Play Stations, to astronomy, David Beckham, 70's rock, the demise of Concorde, the burden of an Eton education and the shocking failure of Tom Clancy to make it on to the Booker shortlist, The World According to Clarkson is a hilarious snapshot of the life in the 21st century that will have readers wincing with embarrassed recognition and crying with laughter. It's not about the cars!

Category: Bicycles
Description: The publication of The World According to Clarkson in 2004 launched a multi-million-copy bestselling phenomenon. But to no avail. Jeremy's one-man war on crimes against common sense has not yet been won. And our hero's still scratching his head at the madness of it all. But it's not all bad. He's learned a little along the way, including: why binge drinking is good for you; the worst word in the English language; the remarkable secret of eternal youth; the pleasure and pain of middle-aged drumming; the problem with America; and, how to dispose of a seal. For anyone who's ever been driven to wonder just what is the matter with people these days, For Crying Out Loud is the perfect riposte. Surprising, fearless and always laugh-out-loud funny, Clarkson's back and he's got a point.

The Top Gear Years


Category: Bicycles
Description: The Top Gear Years brings together Jeremy Clarkson's collected magazine columns for the first time. Clarkson at his pithy, provocative, hilarious best. We now know all about the world according to Clarkson. In a series of bestselling books Jeremy has revealed it to be a puzzling, frustrating place where all too often the lunatics seem to be running the asylum. But in The Top Gear Years, we get something rather different. Because ten years ago, at an ex- RAF aerodrome in Surrey, Jeremy and his friends built a world that was rather more to his liking: they called it Top Gear HQ. And Top Gear is for Jeremy what the jungle is for Tarzan: the perfect place to work and play. But they didn't stop there... With this corner of Surrey sorted out, Jeremy and the boys decided to have a crack at the rest of the world. With Top Gear Live charging through with the subtlety of a touring heavy rock band and far flung outposts across the globe from North America to China - an empire of petrol-headed upon which the sun never set. And all along Jeremy was writing about it in Top Gear magazine. Here, collected for the first time, are the fruits of his labours: the cars, the hijinx, the pleasure and the pain. Brilliantly written and laugh out loud funny. The Top Gear Years follows Jeremy Clarkson's many bestselling titles including Round the Bend and The World according to Clarkson series. Praise for Jeremy Clarkson: Jeremy Clarkson is very funny and his well-honed political incorrectness is a joy. ( Daily Telegraph). Jeremy Clarkson began his writing career on the Rotherham Advertiser. Since then he has written for the Sun, the Sunday Times, the Rochdale Observer, the Wolverhampton Express & Star, all of the Associated Kent Newspapers and Lincolnshire Life. Today he is the tallest person working in British television.

British Motorcycles Of The 1940s And 50s

British Motorcycles Of The 1940s And 50s


Category: Bicycles
Description: After VE Day in 1945 the British population returned enthusiastically to the road. But the cost and availability of both vehicles and fuel led to the post-war scene being dominated by motorcycles, most of them ex-military machines, eagerly snapped up for everyday use in an age when a family car remained just a dream for many. The British industry, meanwhile, was exhorted to 'export or die', and until well into the 1950s the majority of new British bikes were sold abroad. During this period, the industry - the largest and most important in the world - continued to develop new and exciting machines. Mick Walker tells the story of the British post-war motorcycle during this golden age of the industry. With the help of archive photographs and advertising material, this book conjures up a lost age of the British bike, of journeys to work by popping two-strokes, and trips to the seaside in the family motorcycle combination.

As You Do


Category: Bicycles
Description: The wry, honest and often hilarious chronicles of a very brave and clever TV presenter, Arctic Explorer and general drawer of the Short Straw. As one third of the BBC's Top Gear team, Richard Hammond's year since his near-fatal accident has been full of stunts and drama. From a race to the North Pole (with skis and dog-sled) to a journey through Botswana in a car named Oliver, and a seventeen-mile run through floods to his Gloucestershire home, in order to get to his daughter's birthday party, the year has been eventful, to say the least ... With his boundless optimism in the face of certain failure, Richard Hammond has become one of our funniest writers about a life (and a job) which constantly present a challenge.
