Motor Movies The Posters

by Paul Veysey, Motor Movies The Posters Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Motor Movies The Posters books, From the late 19th century the progress of the movies has paralleled that of the motorcar. Now, for the first time, these developments are chronicled through the medium of the Movie Poster. The book celebrates the progression from the simple and crude, through the functional, the ambitious, the barking mad, right up to today’s high-tech, computer generated, often soulless examples of both cinema and automobile. By charting the poster art of the movies chronologically, the book takes you on a journey through the 20th Century in black and white, sepia, hand coloring, stone-litho, and glorious Technicolor. The book shows the obsessively accurate, the artist’s impression, the photographic and the wildly imaginative depictions of the automobile. The development of product placement in marketing is well-illustrated. Why did the Mustang appear in so little publicity for Bullitt? Where was the Mini in most of the world’s publicity for The Italian Job? Why wasn’t the Alfa Romeo Dueto prominent in the advertising of The Graduate? The book doesn’t provide intricate plot lines or vast cast lists; there are many reference works, both in books and on-line that supply this detail. Instead it shows how different countries promoted the same movie and give a brief guide to buying posters of movies safely. Primarily this is a book to wallow in, beautifully photographed artwork is guaranteed to bring memories favorite cars in movies and gives a fascinating insight into the evolution of cinema, marketing and the automobile. With 250 color photos, this book is a fascinating feast in all respects. With 250 pictures of rare and original posters and a star rating system for rarity, this is a beautiful book to browse and a valuable investment guide.

The Bsa Bantam Bible

by Peter Henshaw, The Bsa Bantam Bible Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Bsa Bantam Bible books, Year-by-year evolution of the BSA Bantam, a simple commuter bike that thousands learnt to ride on. It became the standard GPO 'telegram bike' in the 1950s and was a huge success, with 100,000 built in the first four years of production. It's a story with interesting asides, like the Hummer, Harley-Davidson's version of the DKW that inspired the Bantam, and survived into the 1960s. But it's a sad story too – BSA failed to follow up the Bantam's early success by developing it, and by the mid-1960s it was looking outdated, especially next to the new breed of four-stroke Hondas. That the Bantam was allowed to fizzle out in 1971 symbolised the state of the industry that produced it, but today there's a thriving community of Bantam owner/riders. The book ends with a guide to buying a secondhand Bantam, along with useful appendices on specifications, engine/frame numbers, and contacts among the clubs and Bantam specialists. Every Bantam owner, or would be owner, needs this book - the Bantam Bible!

Forza Minardi

by Simon Vigar, Forza Minardi Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Forza Minardi books, After 20 years of glorious ‘failure’, the best-loved team in Formula One is consigned to the history books, and it deserves one of its own. Minardi had a successful time in Formula Two until the tiny Italian outfit was ready to hit the big time in 1985. It somehow survived in F1’s shark-infested waters as bigger teams (Lotus, Arrows, Tyrrell) were dragged under. They have a truly international fan-base and are the ‘second team’ of most F1 devotees. Minardi is held in such affection as everyone loves the plucky underdog – Minardi’s annual budget would have lasted one month at the other Italian team up the road. Yet, from its plant in Faenza near Bologna, Minardi has produced cars that qualify, sometimes score points and often lead the way in their technology. Gian Carlo Minardi also developed a reputation as a fabulous talent-spotter – Fisichella, Trulli, Webber and the youngest ever World Champion Alonso all started their F1 careers with Minardi. For the last five years, Minardi was owned by controversial Australian tycoon Paul Stoddart. Cast as David against the Goliath of F1’s governing body, Stoddart constantly hit the headlines as he tried to get a more equal share of the sport’s billions. Ultimately, he failed and Red Bull has now bought the team. Despite a petition of 15,000 names, the Minardi name has vanished from the F1 grid and true motorheads miss it. This is the one and only inside account, with exclusive, comprehensive interviews with bosses, drivers and engineers. 140 unique photos complete this revalationary tale.

Plastic Toy Cars Of The 1950s And 1960s

by Andrew Ralston, Plastic Toy Cars Of The 1950s And 1960s Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Plastic Toy Cars Of The 1950s And 1960s books, The history of Dinky Toys, Corgi Toys and other makers of diecast metal cars has been covered in great detail in many books and magazine articles; by contrast, information on plastic toy cars is much harder to come by. Yet collectors are taking an increasing interest in plastic cars, particularly as the rise in the value of early diecast and tinplate models has put many of these out of reach of the average enthusiast. For the first time, this book aims to provide a systematic introduction to the vast number of plastic cars made during the 1950s and 1960s. Years of research have enabled the author to uncover many fascinating facts about the companies who made these toys. Some were major players in the toy industry, like Tri-ang and Brimtoy in the UK, Norev and Minialuxe in France, Gama and Siku in Germany and Ingap in Italy. Many others, though, were more obscure, and some only modeled one car before disappearing without trace. More than 250 photographs of these toys are included, with the emphasis being on the most colorful and realistic examples, all of them based on real vehicles of the period. In many cases, the toy is pictured alongside its original box, the presence of which can often double the value of the item to a collector. Readers will also find a handy glossary listing the names of many of the companies who were active in this field in the 1950s and 1960s, together with some evocative period advertisements and catalogue illustrations. If you thought that a model car had to be made of diecast metal to be worth collecting, this book might change your mind . . . With 250 color photos, extensive appendices and identification aids this is a must have for any collector or dealer.
