Two Billion Cars

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=416014&cjsku=416014...
At present, there are roughly a billion cars in the world. Yet within twenty years, the number will increase to 2 billion, a consequence of China and India's explosive growth. Given that greenhouse gases are already creating havoc with our climate, does this mean that matters will only get worse? Detroit, the federal government, and-not least-American consumers have all contributed to the current crisis. Through a concise history of America's love affair with cars and an overview of the global auto industry, Daniel Sperling, one of the nation's leading transportation experts, and Deborah Gordon explain how we arrived at this state, and what we can do about it. Most provocatively, the authors contend that the two places that are the most troublesome with regard to emissions--California and China--are the most likely to become world leaders on these issues. Arnold Schwarzenegger's improbable embrace of eco-friendly fuel policies and China's forthright recognition that it needs to address its rampant pollution with a far-reaching emissions policy suggest that if they can tackle the issue effectively and honestly, then there really is reason for hope.

Top Gear: Daft Cars

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=931928&cjsku=931928...
From flying cars to amphibious vehicles, solar-powered saloons to rockets on wheels, these are over 50 of the most wacky cars ever devised. Fancy a car that drives sideways? Try the Jeep Hurricane. Or maybe a car in which the windows change colour according to your mood for a more serene and health-giving driving experience? That'll be the Toyota RiN. And if you like a flutter, you'll need the Chrysler Town and Country Black Jack, which contains a mini onboard casino. Some concept cars are designed to demonstrate alternative materials and energy sources, or to showcase the gadgets of the future, or even cater for specific lifestyles or groups of people. Many don't even get beyond the prototype stage - for reasons of cost or practicality, or, in the case of the nuclear-powered Ford Nucleon of 1958, the danger of causing a small atomic explosion. Featuring everything from practical experiments such as the hatchback fire engine, and ideas that have managed to make it into production, to stunning yet impractical supercar concepts, this book both celebrates and cringes at some of motoring's most daft - and even idiotic - ideas.

American Cars, 1946-1959

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1594722&cjsku=1594722...
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.
