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.

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.

Long Way Back


Category: Bicycles
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... Long Way Back is the emotional story of his rehabilitation. He reveals how he was unsure if he'd ever be able to walk properly and recalls everything from the ambulance ride to the Portuguese hospital where operations took place and even the medivac flight back to London. Written in alternating chapters during the time he was unable to walk, Charley also provides an introspective account of his childhood and aspiring love of motorbikes and all the formative influences of his life including his touring film director father, long-time friend Ewan Mc Gregor and Jason Connery ( Sean's son), the man who introduced him to bikes.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Category: Bicycles
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.

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.

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.

Hillman Cars


Category: Bicycles
Description: William Hillman started manufacturing cars in Coventry in 1907 before selling his company to the Rootes Brothers in 1928. Three years later came the Hillman Minx, the first of a line that would endure in multiple forms for nearly half a century, even after the remarkable Imp arrived in 1963 to claim a slice of the market opened by the BMC Mini. Rarely revolutionary, Hillman cars nevertheless carved out a special place in the hearts of the British people as well as many overseas customers. This beautifully illustrated introduction to a classic British marque traces Hillman's history from its first cars at the turn of the century until, weakened by industrial disputes, it disappeared in the mid-1970s.

Clarkson


Category: Bicycles
Description: There was a national outcry in 2015 when the BBC announced that they were parting ways with Jeremy Clarkson. However, one thing was clear; he was never going to be away from our screens for long... During his time on Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson established himself not only as a motoring aficionado but also an unlikely political commentator with a knack for telling us how it is (and putting his foot in it). However, his 'gaffes' only made the nation love him more. Whilst the Beeb tried to revive Top Gear after the departure of Clarkson, May and Hammond with an all-star line-up including Chris Evans and Matt Le Blanc, something just wasn't right. They soon learned to their cost that there's no one quite like Clarkson. From scandals over 'feckless Mexicans' and infamous punch-ups to his escapades on The Grand Tour, this is the true story of his extraordinary life and career. This entertaining and fully up-to-date biography charts Clarkson's rise and fall (and rise again) along with the uncensored views and hilarious anecdotes that have made him a national treasure.

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.

Description: What's it like to drive a car that's actively trying to kill you? This and many other burning questions trouble Jeremy Clarkson as he sets out to explore the world from the safety of four wheels. Avoiding the legions of power-crazed traffic wombles attempting to block highway and byway, he: shows how the world of performance cars may be likened to Battersea Dogs' Home; reveals why St Moritz may be the most bonkers town in all of the world; reminds us that Switzerland is so afraid of snow that any flakes falling on the road are immediately arrested; and, argues that washing a car is a waste of time. Funny, globe-trotting, irreverent and sometimes downright rude, Round the Bend is packed with curious and fascinating but otherwise hopelessly useless stories and facts about everything under the sun (and just occasionally cars). It's Jeremy Clarkson at his brilliant best.

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.

The World According To Clarkson


Category: Bicycles
Description: The world is an exciting and confusing place for Jeremy Clarkson - a man who can find the overgrown schoolboy in us all. 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!

Dont Stop Me Now


Category: Bicycles
Description: There's more to life than cars. Jeremy Clarkson knows this. There is, after all a whole world out there just waiting to be discovered. So, before, he gets on to torque steer and active suspension, he takes time to consider: the madness of Galapagos tortoises; the similarities between Jeremy Paxman and AC/ DC's bass guitarist; the problems and perils of being English; God's dumbest creation. Then there are the cars: whether it's the poxiest little runabout or an exotic, firebreathing supercar, no one does cars like Clarkson. Unmoved by mechanics' claims and unimpressed by press junkets, he approaches anything on four wheels without fear or favour. What emerges from the ashes is rarely pretty. But always very, very funny.

For Crying Out Loud


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.
