Rolls Royce : the best car in the world by John Heilig( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Royces kvalitetsbevissthet og Charles Rolls' velykkede markedsføring viste verden et kjøretøy av ypperste klasse. Kvalitet er Rolls- Royces fremste varemerke. Alle bilene er laget manuelt, derfor er ingen helt like. Ved inngangen til det 21. århundret ser fremtiden noe usikker ut for produksjonen av Rolls Royce, som nå ligger i tyske hender. Nærmere bestemt hos Volkswagen, men skal siden overføres til BMW. Det er imidlertid lovet at eventuelle endringer kun skal være til det bedre. Innholdet fremstilles kronologisk, i ti kapitler, og tar for seg Rolls Royces historie - både hva gjelder bilene og personene bak. Boken er gjennomillustrert med fotos i både farger og svart/hvitt, billedtekst. Ryddig layout

The Bentley story by Reg Abbiss( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The fastest lorries in Europe', the Italian carmaker Ettore Bugatti laconically described Walter Bentley's huge, snarling British race cars that aggressively dominated motor racing for years. Driven by hard-partying young men known as the Bentley Boys, they consistently beat all comers, winning the Le Mans 24 Hour endurance race five years out of six. They also dominated Brooklands - the cradle of motor racing - and its thundering, steep banking, becoming the world's most admired and feared sporting cars. Bought by Rolls-Royce in 1931, Bentley languished in semiobscurity for decades as their parent company concentrated on its main marque. In the 1980s Bentley re-emerged with mighty turbo-charged super cars, and saved the financially ailing Rolls-Royce from going under. Bentley was back, and today is the world's leading performance luxury car

Hot rods by Junkyard Wars( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Hot rods were the phenomenal cars created by back-yard mechanics in the post-war world of Southern California. These young automotive enthusiasts were raring to reinvent anything they touched. Their cars demanded to be raced. Trouble was, some early hot rodders used the streets for racetracks. The police, newspapers, politicians, and their parents, took a dim view of hot rodders and labeled them rebels. With their sport about to go under, they banded together and invented a safe way to race, drag racing. The sport blossomed and now thousands of meets are held every year. This is the story of young people who created a sport, while searching for ways to satisfy their need for speed"--Container
