"With more than 1,300 pages and 12,500 illustrations covering 70 years, this may be the most complete visual history of the American automobile ever published. Nowhere else are there so many collector, luxury, sporting and every day cars assembled with fascinating information about original prices, engine sizes, horsepower, and other specifications. The pages are packed with genuine, factory-fresh photographs and drawings taken from contemporary advertisements, catalogs, and brochures. More than 250 manufacturers and hundreds of individual models trace the evolution of the American automobile, from the millions of Model Ts that rolled off Ford's assembly line through the art deco streamliners of the '30s, to the tail-finned land yachts of the '50s and muscle cars of the '60s and '70s up to the early SUVs of the '90s. Throughout author Tad Burness adds handwritten details not found anywhere else, including pointing out unusual options and differences found within a model. Automotive journalist Matt Stone provides a new general introduction and one to each era within the book."--Amazon.com

Ferrari road cars are fast, beautiful, and fabulously expensive; the race cars are synonymous with victory in Formula One, as well as sports-car competion. But the Ferrari name means much more than just cars or the numbers that measure horsepower, speed, or price. Whether they were built for the road or the track, Ferraris are also marvelous conduits to a world of interesting stories and fascinating facts. Over the years the lore and legends surrounding Ferrari have involved people, history, design, pop culture, mystery, lies, rumor, and humor. Loyal Ferrari owners have run the gamut from royalty to rock stars. Ferraris have made memorable appearances in movies and TV shows, and they have been the subject of countless books and articles. And Ferrari champions have included some of the greatest names in racing history, from Ascari and Gangio to Schumacher and Alonso. The Ferrari Phenomenon offers an innovative, wide-ranging perspective on the world's most iconic car manufacturer. It covers everything from little-known details of Enzo Ferrari's life to unexpected facts about one-off cars, historic races, and famous Ferrari owners. There's also a virtual tour of the Ferrari factory, and even tips on what to see when you visit Maranello."--Publisher description

ISKY : Ed Iskenderian and the history of hot rodding by Matthew L Stone( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To tell the life story of Ed Isky Iskenderian is to tell the history of hot rodding in America. Ed was there from the very beginning. Born in 1921 to first-generation Armenian immigrants, Ed's first hobby was ham radio, but like many young men in the years before World War II, his interest turned to automobiles, especially hot rods. Ed had natural skills in metal working and machining that were developed in high school. He wanted to further develop those skills, so he joined the Air Corps to continue his education and flew with Air Transport Command. By the time Ed mustered out of the service, the California hot rod scene was in full bloom, with tens of thousands of vets who had the desire to make cars go fast. Isky: Ed Isky Iskenderian and the History of Hot Rodding, tells the whole story, from his pre-war Lake Muroc and car club activities, his service in the military, starting a small business fabricating parts and making cams in the back of a rented shop, and then selling cams to other rodders. It covers how he grew a business from a single cam grinder and became the leading cam authority in barely 10 years. Ed was a gifted machinist, and he also had a natural knack for promotion. He purchased an ad in the very first edition of Hot Rod magazine, sensing something big; his instincts, as always, were right. He was also the first to use T-shirts and uniforms as promotion. Not only was he an early pioneer in the industry for print adverting and catalogs, he was also among the first to understand the value of having successful race cars using his cams in their engines and wearing his decals on their fenders. The biggest names in the racing industry were running Isky cams, and Ed made sure the world knew it. Ed's company name went on to become one of the household names in the performance community. His continued success is an entertaining tale of mingling with industry icons, insight into the business of hot rodding, great stories of yesterday and today, and a life very well lived. You will enjoy the stories recorded here as much as Ed Isky Iskenderian seems to enjoy telling them
