Magnify The Land Rover Story
The Land Rover Story

The Land Rover Story


Category: Bicycles
Description: The very first Land Rover, launched in 1948, owed its low-key existence to shoestring British ingenuity and - literally - odds and ends left over from World War II. Rover thought it could keep its factory ticking over as the company's post-war fortunes slowly revived. They also thought that farmers might appreciate it as a handy cross between a pick-up and a tractor. But it was soon obvious that the company had created, in the land Rover, a world-beating product. Giles Chapman tells the story of how Land Rovers have tamed the planet's toughest terrain with their unstoppable off-road capability. It also charts how the Land Rover legend allowed the marque to gradually expand its range with the Range Rover, Discovery, Freelander and the latest Range Rover Evoque. They're all cars as familiar in cities and suburbs as they are at home in the countryside. Land Rover has been controversial, its fortunes tied to Britain's economic ups and downs. Today it's on a roll, leading a renaissance in British design and manufacturing, yet the continued presence of the Defender helps keep the Land Rover Story absolutely pukka.

Mazda Mx-5 Miata (mk1 1989-97 and Mk2 98-2001)


Category: Bicycles
Description: 20 years ago, the Mazda MX-5 Roadster was born - the result of five years' research and development by two project teams split across Japan and the USA. When launched, it was the sports car the world was waiting for. Over the past 20 years, the MX-5 has evolved and changed, but has managed to stay true to the original philosophy of 'horse and rider as one,' a car to truly engage with the driver and provide the ultimate top-down driving experience with its perfect 50/50 weight distribution and neutral handling - it is easy to control, nimble and light, and inexpensive to buy, own and maintain. The MX-5 is a true testament to itself as the 'world's best-selling sports car,' and with the earlier Mk I and Mk II available for modest prices, it is the perfect choice as a fun and enjoyable daily driver, a weekend track car, or a project base for a kit car. This book will help you get the MX-5 of your dreams.

The Vw Camper Story

The Vw Camper Story


Category: Bicycles
Description: What Europe needed after the Second World War was an ultra-reliable workhorse to get small businesses on the move again. And, with a little nudge from the Dutch, that's what Volkswagen provided in 1950 with its Transporter van. It was no fireball, but rock-solid quality meant it always delivered the goods. But then something incredible happened: people found that they enjoyed driving the trusty Transporter, and that it made an excellent place to spend the night. And once the British had helped perfect a way to raise the roof, the Volkswagen Camper became a worldwide phenomenon - the mobile home for everyone from student adventurers to gung-ho grandparents. Volkswagen vans have been front (originally rear) engined and water (originally air) cooled now for over 20 years, yet the spirit of the Camper is as unbowed as ever. Here, award-winning writer Giles Chapman tells the whole, amazing story.

Magnify Sons Of Thunder
Sons Of Thunder

Sons Of Thunder


Category: Bicycles
Description: Robert Pirsig, in his groundbreaking Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, wrote about the relationship of rider and machine, the fact of 'seeing deeply into the nature of things by direct experience'. T. E. Lawrence described 'the lustfulness of moving swiftly', the sensation of feeling 'the earth moulding herself under me ...heaving and tossing on each side like a sea'. Not all the contributors to this exhilaratingly high-octane collection are quite so lyrical or mystical. Hunter S. Thompson concludes his review of the Ducati 900 Supersport with a brutal comparison: ' A fool couldn't ride the Vincent Black Shadow more than once, but a fool can ride a Ducati 900 many times, and it will always be a bloodcurdling kind of fun. That is the Curse of Speed which has plagued me all my life. I am a slave to it. On my tombstone they will carve, IT NEVER GOT FAST ENOUGH FOR ME.' Men don't have the monopoly on mufflers or power-to-weight ratio. Melissa Holbrook Pierson, Lois Pryce and Theresa Wallach have full-throttle tales to tell. There are even poems by Ted Hughes and Thom Gunn about the pleasures and perils of riding this awesome machine. For the fanatic and even the armchair traveller, Neil Bradford's collection of motorcycle writing, Sons of Thunder, makes the most persuasive case for the unique excitement and emotional experience offered by one of humankind's greatest inventions.

The Mobility Revolution

The Mobility Revolution


Category: Bicycles
Description: We stand at the cusp of a mobility revolution unlike anything we have seen since the days of Gottlieb Daimler and Henry Ford, 130 years ago. Three massively significant and converging automotive trends - electrification, self-driving technology and car-sharing - will together transform the way we live, work, and move about in our increasingly urban environment. This book coins the term ' Mobility Revolution' and is a summary of the 'three zeroes' that are already defining the future for the automobile industry: Zero Emissions, Zero Accidents and Zero Ownership. The impact will go beyond the automotive industry and its suppliers - urban infrastructure, construction, logistics - and even local cafes will need to think and operate differently. Based on countless interviews, the book is highly current and thoroughly researched, whilst also fun to read. It is an eye-opener to the new world that awaits us as the Mobility Revolution unfolds. The Mobility Revolution is a must-read for anyone interested in the future of the automobile industry, our cities, and the way we live.

Mini: The True And Secret History Of The Making Of A Motor Car

Mini: The True And Secret History Of The Making Of A Motor Car


Category: Bicycles
Description: In 1959, the first Mini was produced on an assembly line at Cowley, near Oxford. It would take a team of supremely talented designers, engineers and production-line workers to build a car that was unique in appearance and construction. They would clash over an uncomfortable and unsafe prototype, and the public had to be convinced to buy a car that let in water when it rained. But somehow the Mini became an icon. Designed for austerity and efficiency, the car came to represent individuality and classlessness. Today, the car is still produced at Cowley - it is now owned by BMW and called the MINI. A great British manufacturing story, it is more popular throughout the world than it has ever been, a symbol of the age that created it. But who makes these things, and what do they think about their work? By meeting the people behind the MINI, Simon Garfield uncovers a fascinating story of endeavour, ingenuity and masterful marketing. The modern MINI has come a long way from the leaky floor and sliding windows. But throughout its history, the people behind it have always known that they have been making something rare - a car with soul.

Cars We Loved In The 1950s


Category: Bicycles
Description: After the Second World War, cars in Britain were very hard to come by. Most new models had to go for export or were reserved for those drivers who needed them the most, such as doctors. Petrol was still rationed, roads inadequate and modern technology lacking. With the arrival of the 1950s, things slowly began to change: Morris, Austin and Ford put increasing numbers of British families on the road, new sports cars from MG, Jaguar, Triumph and Austin- Healey promised a thrilling drive, and innovative motors such as the Land Rover and the bubble car emerged. By 1958, new car buying was leading a consumer boom, and Britain's manufacturers still had the market to themselves. Giles Chapman investigates the fascinating motoring history of the 1950s.

Bizarre Cars


Category: Bicycles
Description: This book is dedicated to a select group of designers and marketing people round the world who, in blissful ignorance of the meaning of 'fit for purpose', came up with vehicles so totally bizarre, ugly or inappropriate (in some cases all three) that they must be recorded for posterity. Some people have designed deliberately bizarre cars, for example Ed China's double- bed car and garden shed car. But what distinguishes those designs from the vehicles in this book is that, amazingly, all the cars featured here were meant to be serious offerings to the motoring public. From the Tata/ MDI One CAT, which runs entirely on air and has a range of 7km, to the Russian ZIS 101 Sport, based on a limousine and the longest two-seater sports car of all time, the cars in this book will raise a smile and few eyebrows!

South African Armour Of The Border War 1975-89


Category: Bicycles
Description: The Border War saw the biggest armoured battles in Africa since World War II. Starting as a counter-insurgency operation by the South African Defence Force ( SADF) against the South West Africa People's Organisation, South Africa became embroiled in the complex Angolan Civil War, where they came up against enemies well supplied with equipment and armoured vehicles from the Soviet Union. With the aid of stunning illustrations and photographs, this study details the characteristics, capabilities and performance of the wide variety of armoured vehicles deployed by the SADF, from the Eland armoured car to the Ratel infantry combat vehicle and the Olifant tank. Designed for the unique conditions of the region, South Africa's armour was distinctive and innovative, and has influenced the design of counterinsurgency armoured vehicles around the world. Frequently requested by Osprey readers, and written by two renowned experts on armoured vehicles, this will appeal to all those interested in modern armour and the Cold War proxy wars.

Vw Golf Gti


Category: Bicycles
Description: While old Mk I Golfs have by now largely rusted away, the availability of Mk II models at giveaway prices is plentiful...that is until three magic letters - GTI - appear on the car's front grille and hatch. Find a good example of the MKI with the aid of this guide and you are in clover! The Buyer's Guide carefully charts all the models that an enthusiast just has to own, from the iconic late model Mk I with its pocket rocket 1.8-litre engine and 5-speed box, through to the exclusive, extremely powerful and much sought after limited edition Rallye Golf. With both mileage and particularly condition having a marked affect on potential prices, the authors give sound advice on what is worth restoring and what, however tempting, is likely to cost a new owner an un-recoupable fortune. Weak points, rust traps, and potential mechanical defects are laid out for the reader, with clear Golf-specific guidelines offered on the practicalities of rectifying such problems. The authors also embrace both the customized and mechanically modified examples of the Mk I and Mk II GTI, with each aspect of Golf ownership meticulously captured on camera.

Ford Capri


Category: Bicycles
Description: When launched, the Ford Capri was revolutionary. It was a car that set the European market alight, allowing even a buyer on a modest budget an intoxicating whiff of the exotic whilst keeping running costs ataffordable levels. That status eroded over time, and the Capri sat in the classic car doldrums for many years, its true worth unrecognized. That situation has thankfully changed, and Capri values are rising rapidly, so care has to be taken to make sure you end up with the best one possible for your money. This guide takes the potential purchaser through a short initial examination to weed out the obviously defective followed by a more comprehensive step by step look at the body and mechanical parts, where the clear, jargon-free text accompanied by over 100 photographs sheds light on even the darkest corners of the Capri's construction. A unique points marking system ensures that nothing is overlooked, and an accurate final picture of the car's condition can be viewed in relation to the asking price.

Heath Robinson

Heath Robinson


Category: Bicycles
Description: W. Heath Robinson is best known for his hilarious drawings of zany contraptions, though his work ranged across a wide variety of topics covering many aspects of British life in the decades following the First World War. Starting out as a watercolour artist, he quickly turned to the more lucrative field of book illustration and developed his forte in satirical drawings and cartoons. He was regularly commissioned by the editors of Tatler and The Sketch and in great demand from advertising companies. Collections of his drawings were subsequently published in many different editions and became so successful as to transform Heath Robinson into a household name, celebrated for his eccentric brand of British humour. Presenting such innovations as the ' Zip- Opening Bonnet', the ' Duo-car for the Incompatible' and the handy ' New Rear Wheel Gear for Turning the Car in One Movement', this volume of Heath Robinson illustrations with commentary by K. R. G. Browne will appeal to 'everybody who is ever likely to drive, be driven in, or get run over by a mechanically propelled vehicle'.

Description: This vivid account tells the story of the truckers who were driving from the UK to the Middle East in the early 1980s. The journey was rough, tough, exhausting, dirty, uncomfortable and dangerous. Journalist Franklyn Wood reports that 'in the course of the one trip we are following, seven Britons died in accidents.' Among the physical hazards were icy mountain hairpins, unmade roads and desert sandstorms. Human hazards included Kamikaze coach drivers, robbers, mind-numbingly slow border controls, rogue police and the temptations of the drivers' favourite watering holes. The route led from Europe, through Turkey, Iraq (during its war with Iran) and on to the wealth and culture shock of Saudi Arabia. The cargoes were often worth a million pounds. Delivering them and returning home for the next load - this was the Olympics of truck driving. Cola Cowboys was originally published in 1982 when it proved extremely popular. It has been out of print for many years and has been reprinted by popular demand.

Ulsterbus Citybus And Lough Swilly Buses


Category: Bicycles
Description: The last volume in Colourpoint s Buses in Ulster series, Ulsterbus and Citybus, The Hesketh Years 1988 2003, was published in 2006. Then, in 2008, Irvine Millar produced his acclaimed Lough Swilly Buses. Seven years on Paul Savage has sought out an interesting selection of over 200 images of Ulsterbus, Citybus and Lough Swilly buses and coaches from the decade 2004 2014 and along with informative captions, this book brings the photographic record of those fleets bang up-to-date. Much has changed in the featured bus fleets in those ten years. In fact, on 19 April 2014, the Lough Swilly company ran its last bus services, which had served the people of Derry and north-west Donegal for over eighty years. In the Ulsterbus and Citybus fleets, the double-decker is back in significant numbers, the Bristol RE and Leyland Leopard types are but a memory, as are the blue and ivory and red and ivory liveries, and many services are now operated with low floor, easy access buses. All of this history, variety and more, is illustrated inside.

Irish Buses In The Mid-1960s


Category: Bicycles
Description: In this, his second album on Irish buses, Richard Newman, not a local but a native of Portsmouth, takes us on a journey through the interesting bus scene of an Ireland very different to today, the Ireland of the mid-1960s. In 1964, Richard had acquired an Ilford Sportsman 35mm camera so he had the opportunity to better record the Irish bus scene on his first visit in 1965. He returned in July 1967 for a more extensive tour and again for an extended day trip in May 1968, this to record the closure of the Belfast trolleybus system. Amongst other locations, Richard visited Belfast, Dublin, Londonderry and Waterford where, as well as the interesting bus scene, the backgrounds to his pictures also provide much interest, some locations having changed greatly, other still very recognisable today. In addition to the major operators - Belfast Corporation Transport, Coras Iompair Eireann and the Ulster Transport Authority/ Ulsterbus - Richard also recorded the vehicles of some better known operators in the independent sector, including the Londonderry and Lough Swilly Railway Company.

Jaguar Xj40


Category: Bicycles
Description: The XJ40 had a long development history and underwent sophisticated and thorough testing on several continents. Featuring an array of high-tech features such as a digital dashboard, it drove superbly and won the UK's prestigious ' Car of the Year' award. Most early cars have gone to the crusher by now, and those that remain are be of variable quality. Even the last XJ40s are now 14 years old and can suffer terminal decline. For the careful buyer, however, they represent true bargain luxury cars, provided you buy a good example. This book will help you pick a sound car and avoid the depressing experience of buying a superficially pretty XJ40, which turns out to have serious problems through neglect or wear. It takes you step by step through your initial viewing and a more detailed inspection, where each aspect of the car is given an objective numerical score reflecting its condition, with the total overall score supporting your decision to buy or walk away. Covering all engine and trim versions, here's what to look for, what to avoid, and whether the car is likely to suit your needs, plus relative values and the best places to buy. It also includes full details on back-up organisations and literature. There is no safer way to avoid buying a bad car short of paying for a professional evaluation.
