The Golden Age of British Trucking

This book takes you into another world. To the days when lorries were much smaller, often had lots of curves and, in many cases, a big chrome radiator grille. They were almost without doubt built in Britain, which had dozens of manufacturers, sporting names which just conjured up heavy engineering and solidity: Scammell, Seddon, Foden,and even Vulcan. This book looks at everything, from restorations to family histories and goes back through photos to many times past. Have a great read, marvel at the skills of vehicles and most importantly, drink deeply from this overflowing cup of nostalgia!

Rise and Fall of the Severn Bridge Railway 1872-1970

The Severn Bridge Railway was more than once linked with that of its contemporary, the first Tay bridge: but whereas the Tay failed structially and quickly, the subject of this book failed commercially and protractedly. The Severn Bridge lasted for eighty years until 1960 when two drifting barges administered the fatal blow. Ron Huxley creates a detailed account of the construction, use and passing of one of the greatest bridges of its day, documented by illustrations throughout the book.

The Severn Bridge was built as a railway bridge to create a shorter through route to avoid having to go through Gloucester. This book was originally published in 1984 and has long been out of print.

• Like having a real marque expert at your side – benefit from years of real ownership experience
• Full coverage of all Harley Big Twin models
• Where and how to buy a Harley Big Twin
• Advice on choosing the right model and condition
• Key checks – how to spot a bad bike quickly

Description
Having this book in your pocket is just like having a real marque expert by your side. Benefit from the author’s years of Harley-Davidson ownership, learn how to spot a bad bike quickly, and how to assess a promising one like a professional. Get the right bike at the right price!

Synopsis
There are lots of books about Harleys, about their history, performance, lineage and the minutae of their specification, but none of them will tell you what to look for when buying one second-hand. That’s what this book is about – it aims at being a straightforward, practical guide to buying a used Harley-Davidson. It won’t list all the correct colour combinations for each year, or analyse the bike’s design philosophy, or consider its background as a cultural icon – there are excellent books listed at the end of this one which do all of that. But hopefully it will help you avoid buying a dud. Point by point, it takes the reader through everything that needs looking at when buying a Harley, plus spares prices, which is the best model to buy for your needs, and a look at auctions, restorations and paperwork.

Additional Information
Models covered: FL, FX/Softail and Dyna series. 1340cc, 1450cc, 1584cc

Lincoln Gold Portfolio 1949-60

Post-war Lincoln evolved from 1944 to their introduction in 1949. In 1952 the whole range was restyled with Lincoln receiving a new V8 giving 160bhp. Bodily they were high waisted having more legroom in the rear. Later boosted to 205bhp the engine was quiet and the whole car gave a comfortable ride. Over the following years the cars were steadily but unobtrusively improved, being voted the Safest car in America in 1955. The Continental of 1955 was introduced for the prestige market. Dramatic changes occurred with the change to unitised construction in 1958 and the incorporation of the Continental as a production model brought the total of models available up to 10. Small changes were made in the following years. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, technical and specification data, model introductions, competition, drivers reports. Models include: Cosmopolitan, Capri, Continental Mk II, III, IV, V. 180 pages, 350 illus. Soft Bound.
