The Electric Car in America, 1890-1922 - A Social History

door

Omschrijving - At the end of 1900 the auto industry was set to become a huge force in America over the following ten years or so as the car moved from being a plaything of the rich to being a mass market item, increasingly available to most segments of society. The electric vehicle seemed poised in 1900 to be a leader, or even the dominant force. It had large advantages over vehicles driven by the other two main motive powers, steam and gasoline.

Electric cars were clean, odorless, noiseless and they were mechanically simple, compared to their rivals. They rarely broke down and they were easy to operate. An electric car could be started instantly from the driver's seat; no other machine could claim that advantage.

But then it all went wrong. The hope and confidence of 1900 collapsed and just two decades later the electric car was dead; two makers continued to produce until late in the 1920s but it was all over for the electrics by the start of the 1920s. Inherent advantages paled in the face of disadvantages that were never resolved.

The machines were costly and never came down in price while gasoline cars saw dramatic price reductions over time. Most of all the storage battery was an endless source of problems. Even the genius of Thomas Edison, who worked for over a decade to try and produce a better battery, was unable to prevail.

All the electric car industry was able to mount in the guise of dealing with myriad problems was to present an increasingly frantic public relations campaign of lies and deceptive advertising; but never any solutions to the industry's problems.

American Automobiles of the Brass Era - Essential Specifications of 4,097 Gasoline Powered Passenger Cars, 1906-1915

door

Omschrijving - From Abbott-Detroit to Zip, this unique reference book documents American gasoline-powered automobiles manufactured for the model years 1906 through 1915, the Brass Era.
In these explosive early years of automotive history, a vast number of manufacturers - most of which failed within two years - produced a range of cars whose sheer diversity is unmatched in later times.

The short corporate lifespans and constant change throughout the industry left a fragmented historical record, with data about specific models scarce and scattered in later sources. Here the basic facts of 4,000+ cars, painstakingly researched in all available period sources, are collected and trends of the era are analyzed.

Les voitures Américaines

door

Omschrijving - Les Américains ont fait entrer l'automobile dans l'ère l'industrielle grâce au système de travail à la chaîne, avec la Ford T qui fut la voiture la plus vendue au monde au début du XXe siècle. Après Ford et General Motors, d'autres marques emblématiques voient le jour outre-Atlantique : Chrysler, Pontiac, Plymouth...
Ces marques de voitures américaines vont se concurrencer, puis se concentrer pour donner naissance aux " Big Three " et faire des Etats-Unis le premier producteur mondial de voitures.

De cette épopée industrielle, on retient surtout, en France, des voitures de légende comme la Ford Mustang, la Dodge Charger, la Pontiac GTO, L'Oldsmobile 98, la Buick Skylark, la Cadillac Eldorado ou la Chevrolet Corvette...
Les voitures américaines sont de vraies légendes roulantes.

American Cars in Europe, 1900-1940 - A Pictorial Survey

door

Omschrijving - Germany is most often credited with the birth of the internal combustion engine. France gave rise to the first credible motor industry. The United States added a little Yankee ingenuity and came up with its own version of both. While the American automobile industry got off to a bumpy start, by 1908, U.S. automobile production had surpassed that of European manufacturers.
When the outbreak of World War I all but halted European production of passenger cars, American auto makers took advantage of the opportunity to establish a toehold in Europe. During the war and for two decades after, American automobiles, which were considered reliable and cheap, were a common sight on the streets of many European cities and towns.

This book contains a unique and unprecedented collection of period photographs, recording American automobiles - and their owners - in various locations throughout Europe between the years of 1900 and 1940.
Captions include the make and model of each car; information on the setting of the photograph; and remarks on interesting details, unusual accessories or distinguishing features of each car. Argo, Jewitt, Durant and Reo automobiles are represented here along with household names such as Buick, Chevrolet and Ford.

American Cars in Prewar England - A Pictorial Survey

door

Omschrijving - After World War I, there was a great hunger for cars in Britain. Many servicemen had learned to drive and had money from their demobilization grants to spend, but British factories were not immediately able to get back into car production so they looked to America for automobiles.
In 1919, two out of every five cars on British roads were Fords built in England, and in 1925, General Motors took over British manufacturer Vauxhall. Hudson also became a prolific assembler during this time and Chrysler built an assembly plant in Kew, west of London.

This book features numerous photographs and commentary on many makes of American cars that could be seen on British roads before the beginning of World War II. Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Durant, Duryea, Essex, Ford, Hudson, Jewett, La Salle, Oldsmobile, Overland, Packard, Plymouth, Saxon, Stanley, Studebaker, Stutz and White are among the manufacturers whose cars are included.
The author provides a concise description of each automobile he covers, and points out some interesting features and technical details (horsepower and engine size, for example).

door

Omschrijving - In keiner anderen Zeit war der Einfluss der Designabteilungen von Ford, Chrysler, Pontiac, Cadillac und den anderen amerikanischen Automobilherstellern so groß, wie gerade in den fünfziger und sechziger Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts.

Die Autoren präsentieren in diesem einmaligen Referenzwerk die großartigen US-Autoklassiker mit ihren spannenden Entwicklungsgeschichten, beeindruckenden Produktionszahlen und technischen Spezifikationen. Die spektakulärsten Cruiser von GM über Chrysler und Ford bis hin zu Hudson und Packard werden in Wort und Bild präsentiert, eine längst vergangene Epoche automobiler Unbekümmertheit wird wieder zum Leben erweckt, eine Zeit, als weder Umweltschäden noch Energieeffizienz Thema waren, als die Faszination der Technik und die Freude am Fahren vorherrschten.

American Cars, 1946-1959 - Every Model, Year by Year

door

Omschrijving - From the resumption of automobile production at the close of World War II through the 1950s, the American auto industry would see the births and deaths of several manufacturers, great technological advances, and an era of dramatic styling as a prospering nation asserted its growing mobility. Cars of this period are among the most iconic vehicles ever built in the United States: the 1949 Ford, the remarkable Studebaker designs of 1950 and 1953, the 1955-1957 Chevrolets, the "Forward Look" Chrysler products, the ill-fated Edsel and many others.

This comprehensive reference book details every model from each of the major manufacturers (including independents such as Kaiser-Frazer and Crosley but excluding very low-volume marques such as Tucker) from model years 1946 through 1959. Year by year, it provides an overview of the industry and market, followed by an individual report on each company: its main news for the year (introductions or cancellations of models, new engines and transmissions, advertising themes, sales trends etc.); its production figures and market status; and its powertrain offerings, paint colors and major options. The company's models are then detailed individually with such information as body styles, prices, dimensions and weights, standard equipment and production figures. Nearly 1,000 photographs are included.

American Cars, 1960-1965 : Every Model, Year by Year

door

Omschrijving - The automotive industry underwent great change in the 1960s. The continuing trend toward market consolidation, the proliferation of sizes and nameplates, and the "need for speed" characterized this period, loosely labeled as the muscle car era.

American Cars, 1973-1980 - Every Model, Year by Year

door

Omschrijving - The 1973 oil crisis forced the American automotive industry into a period of dramatic change, marked by stiff foreign competition, tougher product regulations and suddenly altered consumer demand.
With gas prices soaring and the economy in a veritable tailspin, muscle cars and the massive "need-for-speed" engines of the late '60s were out, and fuel efficient compacts were in. By 1980, American manufacturers were churning out some of the most feature laden, yet smallest and most fuel efficient cars they had ever built.

This exhaustive reference work details every model from each of the major American manufacturers from model years 1973 through 1980, including various "captive imports" (e.g. Dodge's Colt, built by Mitsubishi.)
Within each model year, it reports on each manufacturer's significant news and details every model offered: its specifications, powertrain offerings, prices, standard features, major options, and production figures, among other facts. The work is heavily illustrated with approximately 1,300 photographs.

Woodies Américains - Des essences rares et de l'acier

door

Omschrijving - Raffinement et élégance, ainsi pourrait se résumer le concept Woody.

Née aux Etats-Unis, cette technique, appliquée avec ingéniosité dans la construction de voitures de tourisme, va donner naissance entre les décennies 1930 et 1950 à de magnifiques machines tant prisées de nos jours. C'est cette formidable époque automobile que cet ouvrage se propose de faire découvrir...

Coupés américains - personal cars, pony cars, muscle cars 1945-1975

door

Omschrijving - Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Corvette, Thunderbird, Camaro... Autant de noms de voitures américaines qui sonnent comme autant de mythes automobiles.
Dénominateur commun de tous ces modèles, ce sont des coupés, de vrais coupés au design spécifique, et non pas de simples berlines deux portes. Un style qui a marqué les années 1950 à 1970 pour des autos regroupées dans trois catégories : les personal cars (coupés luxueux), les pony cars (petits coupés populaires) et les muscle cars, versions sportives de ces mêmes modèles.

Aux USA comme partout dans le monde, ces voitures bénéficient d'une aura particulière qui a incité l'auteur, journaliste spécialisé dans l'automobile ancienne et de collection à leur consacrer cet ouvrage.
De la première Continental des années 1940 aux Buick Riviera et autres Pontiac Firebird ou Studebaker Avanti des années 1970, tous ces coupés aux lignes personnelles sont présentées en détails, par le biais d'archives d'époque ou de photographies originales.

The Complete Book of American Muscle Supercars : Yenko, Shelby, Baldwin Motion, Grand Spaulding, and More

door

Omschrijving - The American muscle car began not in the factories of the big three automakers, but in the garages and dealerships of a hot-rod subculture bent on making the hottest, highest-performance cars on the street.
This book catalogs these amazing cars, along with the builders who unleashed them on the American scene.

From Michigan's Royal Pontiac dealership and the souped-up Royal Pontiac Bobcats they built and sold, to the new cars from such fabled names as Carroll Shelby, Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge, Nickey Chevrolet, Don Yenko, George Hurst, Baldwin-Motion, Calloway, SLP, and Steve Saleen.

This gorgeously illustrated book chronicles the outstanding contribution of the tuner/builder to American automotive history through the amazing machines they created.

From the oldest of these muscle tuners commanding top dollar at today's classic-car auctions, to the latest vehicles by Ford and Chrysler, with their SVT and SRT divisions, this book gives readers a full and fascinating look at American high-performance in its purest form.

Hot rods (Vitesse)

door

Omschrijving - Le rodding commence dans les années 1930, en Californie, aux États-Unis. À bord de leurs antiques Ford T modifiés, les jeunes, pour s'amuser, faisaient la course d'un feu tricolore à l'autre, sur les lacs asséchés du sud californien et sur les plages de Floride.
En 1932, Ford lance son " Model B ", avec un puissant moteur, le premier V8 proposé sur un véhicule populaire et équipé également des carrosseries dépouillées (ailes et marchepieds supprimés), qui se présente comme une belle occasion pour les passionnés de vitesse pure, atteignant déjà à cette époque les 200 km/h.

Le terme d' " hot-rod " n'apparait qu'après la Deuxième Guerre Mondiale pour qualifier ces vieilles voitures d'occasion achetées par les jeunes puis modifiées par leurs soins pour gagner en compétitivité. Au fil des années, on voit apparaitre des magazines spécialisés, mais aussi des kits haute performance qui suivront l'évolution de la technique et la structuration des courses sur lac asséchés.

À partir des années 1960, plusieurs répliques en polyester voient le jour pour affronter la pénurie de caisses en tôle d'avant-guerre. Une multitude d'entreprises spécialisées nait avec l'arrivée des véhicules uniquement construits pour gagner des trophées dans les salons (show-cars).
La période 1980-1990 voit l'apparition d'un style beaucoup plus sobre : le high-tech. En France, le mouvement Rod émane de la mouvance Custom, apparue dans les années 1980 qui consistait à modifier des vieilles voitures françaises obsolètes pour les mettre aux goûts du jour mécaniquement et esthétiquement.

Via une superbe collection de trois cents photos, le livre " Hot Roods " expose plus de quarante voitures couvrant tous les styles du hot rodding, en allant des Rods traditionnels, de réunions sauvages ou encore les Rat Rods extrêmes décrits à travers leurs caractéristiques techniques, histoires et anecdotes.
