This history of hot rodding is long and fascinating. An old saying in hot rodding is that the car you have bought recently isn't truly yours until you've messed with it. And from its birth in the flats at Muroc pre-WWII to a burgeoning speed industry, young enthusiasts and entrepreneurs did what people do best with any form of new technology: They messed with it. Make it faster, make it cooler, or simply make it better than the next guy's. In Pat Ganahl's Hot Rod Gallery, the acclaimed author gathers his finest images to tell the story of the history of hot rodding from the beginning to 1960 through fascinating and rarely seen photos. From Muroc and early Gow Jobs, to the first drag strips, to the first speed shops and manufacturers, to the first car shows, Ganahl covers it all. Follow the transition from the dry lakes to the street to the first dragstrips. Check out the beginnings of the show circuit, from the first SCTA shows and the Oakland Roadster shows to outdoor car shows. See the beginning of the custom car movement, the hot rod B movies of the 1950s, the rods on the street, as well as the engines, parts, and people who made rodding what it is today. Covered in rarely seen and never-before-seen photos, some in black and white, and some in magnificent color, this softcover edition of Hot Rod Galleryis packed with memories. Hot rods, customs, drag cars, dry lakes racers, speed shops, engines, and the people who built them. No hot rod library is complete without it.

Growing up in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s saw the development of extensive prosperity, of previously unknown luxury, and a level of frivolity that the previous generation never knew. Television, expansion into the suburbs, and the rapid growth of automobiles all led to a development boom that people had never experienced. Combine this with automotive growth, hot rodding, car shows, kids playing with toy cars and building models, and you have the elements necessary to create the show rod craze that proliferated in America during the 1960s and 1970s. A complement to author Scotty Gosson's previous title, America's Wildest Show Rods of the 1960s & 1970s, this all-new book covers what was often the inspiration for all those crazy show rods, the model kits themselves. Viewed from a collector's standpoint rather than a builder's point of view, all of the coolest and wildest kits are featured. Kits including the Red Baron, Li'l Coffin, Mysterion, Uncertain-T, Batmobile, and many more are featured from manufacturers such as Monogram, AMT, Revell, and MPC. Interviews and insights from the designers, the car builders, and the corporate suits provide a unique behind-the-scenes insight into not only what enthusiasts were demanding, but also the methods and marketing savvy that made it all happen. Author Gosson's entertaining prose, unique perspective, diligent research, and color photography throughout make this book essential for show rod enthusiasts. Whether you are interested in picking up the collecting hobby, just want a few cool kits from your childhood to display, or simply want to reminisce about building and obsessing over these crazy kits from your youth, Show Rod Model Kits: A Showcase of America's Wildest Model Kits will be a fun addition to your library.

In an age of unbridled American enthusiasm and towering industrial might, the GM Motorama was a dazzling and elegant show that was unlike any automotive event before it or since. General Motors staged extravagant and elaborate Motorama shows that rivaled some fashion shows. It showcased some of the most revolutionary and innovative prototype and dream cars ever built. And it captured the imagination of the car-buying public from 1950 to 1961. Motorama expert and experienced author David Temple has comprehensively researched the show, the cars, and the personalities to create a fascinating new story with many new photos of these magnificent cars. Because television was in its infancy, GM's President Alfred Sloan believed that the Motorama was the most effective way to market GM products and design prowess. Legendary stylist Harley Earl led a talented group of designers and engineers to dream up, style, and develop some of the most remarkable prototype cars of all time. While current production Buick, Chevy, Cadillac, and Pontiac cars were showcased, the bold, radical, awe-inspiring prototype and dream cars stole the show. These included the GM Le Sabre, replete with aerospace design and an aluminum engine; the fiberglass-bodied Corvette dream car, which went into production after overwhelmingly positive response; and the jet engine-powered Firebird. Temple goes into fascinating detail on the body, frame, engine, drivetrain, and all the special features of each model. He has also retraced the ownership histories of some of these cars. Within the pages of this volume, you get to relive this glorious era of automotive history and revisit the advanced show cars that inspired so many new models. This book features fascinating period photography of Motorama cars at the show, in development, and at different locales. No other automotive show rivaled the Motorama for stunning productions and awe-inspiring cars, which makes this a must-have book.

Was soll ein Bär tun, wenn ein Mensch einen polar-isierenden Effekt auf ihn hat? Als Vicky blöderweise einem Eisbären in die Seite rutscht, ist sich zu verlieben das Letzte, was sie erwartet. Gefressen zu werden, vielleicht als Kauspielzeug benutzt zu werden, aber das Objekt der Zuneigung und Lust eines Bären zu werden? Verrückt! Fast so verrückt wie die Tatsache, dass sich der Eisbär in einen Mann verwandelt. Einen sexy Mann. Einen Mann, der knurrt und brüllt und alles tut, um sie zu verjagen. Nur um dann zurückzukommen. Gene hat nur eine Sache im Kopf, Rache, bis Vicky in sein Leben rauscht. Nach dem Schmerz und dem Betrug, den er im Krieg erlebt hat, will er Rache nehmen an den Brüdern, die ihn im Stich gelassen hatten. Aber er ist verwirrt, als sie ihm Vergebung anbieten, anstatt ihn für seine bösen Taten bestrafen zu wollen. Als wäre das nicht schon irritierend genug, will die süßeste Streberin, die er je getroffen hat – mit karamellgeküsster Haut über einer ansprechend kurvigen Figur und einer sexy dunkel gerahmten Brille – ihn nicht in Ruhe lassen. Oder eher kann er anscheinend nicht aufhören, ihr zu folgen. Und das liegt nicht nur daran, dass jemand es darauf abgesehen hat, sie zu verletzen. Er will sie. Aber will er sie mehr, als er Rache will?

Sie lässt sich nicht beirren und ermittelt auf eigene Faust ...
