p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Arial} Without question, the 1964-1/2 Mustang is one of the most important and influential cars in automotive history. When Ford launched the Mustang, it created an automotive revolution. Award-winning designer and stylist Gale Halderman was at the epicenter of the action at Ford, and, in fact, his initial design sketch formed the basis of the new Mustang. He reveals his involvement in the project as well as telling the entire story of the design and development of the Mustang. Authors and Mustang enthusiasts James Dinsmore and James Halderman go beyond the front doors at Ford into the design center, testing grounds, and Ford facilities to get the real, unvarnished story. Gale Halderman offers a unique behind-the-scenes perspective and firsthand account of the inception, design, development, and production of the original Mustang. With stinging losses from the Edsel fresh in minds at Ford, the Mustang project was an uphill battle from day one. Lee Iacocca and his assembled team had a herculean task to convince Henry Ford II to take a risk on a new concept of automobile, but with the help of Hal Sperlich’s detailed market research, the project received the green light. Henry Ford II made it clear that jobs were on the line, including Iacocca’s, if it failed. The process of taking a car from sketch to clay model to prototype to preproduction and finally finished model is retraced in insightful detail. During the process, many fascinating experimental cars, such as the Mustang I two-seater, Mustang II prototype, Mustang Allegro, and Shorty, were built. But eventually the Mustang, based on the existing Ford Falcon, received the nod for final production. In a gala event, it was unveiled at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. The Mustang received public accolades and critical acclaim, and soon it became a runaway hit. After the initial success, Ford designers and Gale Halderman designed and developed the first fastback Mustangs to compliment the coupes. The classic Mustang muscle cars to follow, including the GT, Mach 1, and others, are profiled as well. The Mustang changed automotive history and ushered in the pony car era as a nimble, powerful, and elegantly styled sports coupe. But it could so easily have stumbled and wound up on the scrap pile of failed new projects. This is the remarkable and dramatic story of how the Mustang came to life, the demanding design and development process, and, ultimately, the triumph of the iconic American car.

If it was true that the sun never set on the British Empire, it was equally true that it employed millions of equine subjects to defend, feed and maintain social order among its human citizens. Originally released in 1893, The Horse World of Victorian London provides an insight into the city 's incredible lost equestrian world.At the dawn of the 20th century, there were an estimated 300,000 horses living and working within the city limits of Great Britain 's capital. We are not speaking of horses lodged in farms in the nearby country who travelled in and out the city. Ironically, though the city streets were thronged with horses, few of them were used exclusively for riding. This was instead a massive four-legged work force, the likes of which today 's mechanised humans can neither remember nor relate to. For example every year London 's tram horses collectively travelled twenty-one million miles through the crowded city streets. An estimated forty thousand carriage horses pulled father to work and the children to school. Mother went shopping on the omnibus, of which 22,000 horses drew more than 2,000 vehicles every day. If the family couldn t afford a carriage, they could always travel by horse-drawn tram. London had 135 miles of horse drawn tram lines. Every year these tram horses collectively travelled twenty-one million miles through the crowded city streets. The North Metropolitan Tram Company alone employed 3,500 horses.Before the days of UPS and FEDEX, private companies delivered household goods to the family home from nearby railway stations. One company main tained 2,000 horses, which they kept stabled at twenty depots strategically placed around the great metropolis. The concept of rental cars has its roots in the London stable too. The Tilling Corporation maintained an inner-city herd of 2,500 horses which they rented to anyone, including washerwomen, the fire brigade and police. Meanwhile, the sturdy coal horses kept everyone warm by moving an average of thirty tons of coal a week.The accommodations for this enormous urban herd were as varied for the horses as the humans who employed them. Horses lived in everything from tiny huts in dark alleys to multi-storied stables which held several thousand horses under one roof. The doctor, the duke and the drayman all relied on hard-working horses, who routinely laboured ten hours a day for six days a week. From the Lord Mayor to the beggar boy, the horse influenced the daily lives of every Londoner.The nineteenth century was the golden age of the horse and this well-illustrated book serves as a unique guide through London 's vanished equine world.

Muscle Cars - der Begriff ist Programm. Anfang der 60er Jahre entbrannte zwischen den amerikanischer Automobilherstellern das berühmt-berüchtigte PS- Rennen. Es bestand darin, kompakte und zumeist zweitürige Fahrzeuge mit immer stärkeren Motoren auszurüsten, und hielt bis in die frühen 70er an, als Ölkrise und beginnende Sicherheitsdiskussion dem zügellosen Treiben, das mittlerweile bei fast 500 PS angelangt war, ein Ende setzten. Dieser preiswerte Bildband zeigt sämtliche legendären Hochleistungsfahrzeuge dieser Ära, wie den Pontiac GTO, den Dodge Charger R/T, den Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500, natürlich den Plymouth Road Runner und viele andere, begleitet von sachkundigem Text und den wichtigsten technischen Daten. Ein packender Ausflug in die Welt amerikanischer Kultautos, die Ausdruck ihrer Zeit waren und heute heiß begehrt sind.
