Andy Thompson - Cars of Eastern Europe
From 1945 to 1990 car engineers and designers behind the Iron Curtain worked not to the whims and fancies of motorists but to the plans and diktats of government bureaucrats. "Cars of Eastern Europe" tells the story of the cars and vans made in Latvia, Poland, the former Yugoslavia, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and East Germany. In a region that stretches from the Black Sea to the Baltic, the vehicles were as varied as the nations themselves. Now that eastern Europe has come in from the cold, this book offers a unique and timely survey of the motor industry in this often overlooked part of the continent.
Russell Hayes - Ford Cortina
Once there was a Cortina on every British street corner, but now only a handful of the four million made survive and the rest are fond memories. For 1962 the Cortina was rushed to sale as an economy car, but it rocketed to the top of the sales charts and stayed there for 20 years. To mark 50 years since the introduction of Ford's best-seller, this exhaustively researched history tells how it grew to be a worldwide success. With first-hand accounts from key people and evocative period photography, the design and development of all five generations of Cortina is explored in detail.
Gillian Bardsley - Colin Corke - Making Cars at Longbridge
Containing unique images from the official company archive, this book charts almost one hundred years of car-making at Longbridge near Birmingham. The Austin Motor Company was founded here by Herbert Austin in 1905 and it has since been home to the British Motor Corporation, British Leyland, Rover Group and latterly MG Rover. Its products include some of the most famous British models ever produced: the pioneering Austin Seven of the 1920s; the classic Mini, introduced to the world in 1959 with in astonishing production run of 41 years and a final tally of over 5 million; the Austin Metro, trumpeted as the 'British Car to Beat the World'; and in later years the best-selling MG TF and elegant Rover 75. The factory has been a major employer and an integral part of the local community since its foundation. The sad events of April 2005, when MG Rover went into administration, will radically change the landscape. But the area is now looking to the future, never fogetting its long and proud tradition of manufacturing.

Daniel Denis - Thibaut Amant - Citroën DS
This is a sumptuous photographic record of the Citroën DS in all its myriad forms. Launched as a futuristic vision in 1955, the DS family of cars continued in production for just over 20 years, evolving through two distinct styling phases, three key bodyshell types (saloon, estate and cabriolet), numerous specification changes and various powertrain developments, as well as some fascinating spin-off versions. Every detail is recorded in over 500 colour photographs in this lavish and elegantly presented book.
Daniel Young - Vintage Rover Anthology 1920-1933
This book is a sequel to Rover Anthology 1934-49 (P1-P3). The shortage of material on the pre-war and early post-war models prompted me to publish that volume and the total lack of it on the vintage models encouraged me to take the plunge yet again. However, practical considerations had to guide this project and therefore only a carefully chosen selection of the articles collected on these cars has actually been published here. Once again, I would like to record my gratitude to R. M. Clarke of Brooklands for all the help given to me in the preparation of this volume which I sincerely hope readers will find nostalgic and fascinating.
Doug Nye - British Cars of the Sixties

Ismeretlen szerző - Packard Gold Portfolio
In a recent survey we found that out of every two books we sell one goes to a home containing at least one other Brooklands title. These buyers know what to expect and we hope that they are not disappointed with this Packard anthology. For those adventurous first time buyers we should explain that nothing original lies between these covers. We are in a way explorers trying to unearth lost stories on historic vehicles so that we can make them available again for those who's interest is drawn towards the old car hobby. During the 30 years of compiling this series, some 10,000 road tests and other articles have been included in the 400 titles that make up our list. We print only small quantities of each book which, in the main are aquired by enthusiastic owners. Packard was a great marque and we regret that this book on the face of it has an unhappy ending. Some comfort can be drawn however from the wonderful legacy left to us by the company in the form of a string of classic models which each year grace concours and auto shows from coast to coast and beyond.

G. N. Georgano - A History of Sports Cars
Broadly speaking, sports cars are those in which performance takes priority over carrying capacity, but within these limits a tremendous variety of cars have been made over the past sixty years. This book begins by tracing the development of the sporting car from the tourer in pre-1914 days. The touring events that bred the sporting car, the Herkomer and Prince Henry Trials in Germany, the Alpine Trials of Austria, and the formidable Russian Trials are described, together with the cars that competed in them - such as the Austro-Daimler, Vauxhall, Rolls-Royce and Horch. After World War 1 the sports car flourished in every country, and the chapters in Part Two cover the famous Bentleys, Bugattis, Alfa Romeos and Mercedes-Benz, as well as the obscurer German sports cars and the spidery Spanish cyclecars developed from wheeled bobsleds. The American chapters in the first two parts run from the Mercer and Stutz raceabouts of 1912 through the Paige-Daytona, Jordan, and Dupont speedsters of the twenties to the classic Cord and Auburn. The chapters on the 1930's (Part Three) describe the rise of the modestly priced sports car derived from the mass-produced saloon, such as the MG Midget and Wolseley Hornet, as well as the revival of the large sports car in France in the shape of the Delahaye, Delage and Talbot-Darracq. In the years following World War 2 the export of MG's and Jaguars and Ferraris to the United States of America sparked tremendous enthusiasm which in turn led to native American sports cars such as the Cunningham and Chevrolet Corvette. Despite overall speed limits in many countries, the sports car is as alive as ever in 1970, although there is a marked distinction between the road-going car and those used for sports car racing. The emergence of this distinction is discussed, and both types of car are described: the Austin-Healey Sprite and Shelby Ford Mustang on the one hand, and the Chevron, Porsche 908, and Ford GT40 on the other.

Frank Jung - Porsche 356
Die lange und erfolgreiche Zusammenarbeit zwischen Porsche und dem „Stuttgarter Karosseriewerk Reutter & Co“ war von Beginn an getragen von der gegenseitigen Sympathie zweier herausragender Unternehmen der Automobilbranche. Mit bislang unveröffentlichten Dokumenten und Bildern zeichnet dieses Buch die gemeinsame Geschichte der beiden Firmen nach. Diese einzigartigen Unterlagen und die persönlichen Erinnerungen vieler ehemaliger Reutter-Mitarbeiter in Wort und Bild machen es zu mehr als nur einem weiteren Porsche-Buch unter vielen. Bereits ab 1931 baute der 1906 gegründete Karosseriebetrieb für das junge Konstruktionsbüro Porsche erste Prototypen des späteren Volkswagens. Im November 1949 erteilte Porsche der Firma Reutter schließlich einen Auftrag über 500 Sportwagen-Karosserien, und bereits Ostern 1950 wurde der erste in Deutschland gebaute Porsche 356 fertiggestellt. Stets an der Kapazitätsgrenze produzierten Reutter und Porsche in intensiver Zusammenarbeit Seite an Seite den Großteil der legendären Porsche 356. Dieses Buch stellt neben den Serienfahrzeugen viele für Porsche hergestellte Prototypen und Sonderfahrzeuge bis hin zur gemeinsamen Entwicklung der neuen Karosserie für den späteren Typ 911 vor. Bei ausführlicher Schilderung der Zusammenarbeit zwischen den beiden Stuttgarter Firmen liegt der Fokus des Buches auf der Darstellung der Entstehung einer Porsche-356er-Karosserie. Vom unbearbeiteten Blech bis zur Auslieferung der fertigen Fahrzeuge wird der Produktionsprozess so anschaulich und ausführlich beschrieben wie nie zuvor.
