5.0 out of 5 stars Another outstanding photo essay from publisher Arcadia, 8 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another wonderful photo-essay from the world's top publisher of historic photo essays. Publisher Arcadia do an impressive job, and this book is yet another example. Everything Arcadia publish is a set of first class photos with text and captions written by a real authority on the subject. I personally know a good bit about Chevrolet history from of the subject period and find the photos and text flawless and informative.

Auburn:: The Classic City (Making of America (Arcadia))
by John Martin Smith
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Photo Essay Covering the Early Days of Auburn Automobile Manufacture (and more), 27 July 2014
Yet another excellent history photo essay from Arcadia. The publishers are to be congratulated for their selection of authors who are genuine authorities. This book is yet another such example. One wonders where Arcadia find all the wonderful old photos -- an undoubtedly huge undertaking, and much appreciated by me as a reader. My personal interest is in the histories with an automotive focus, and I hope to see more such efforts from Arcadia.


Enduring Courage: Ace Pilot Eddie Rickenbacker and the Dawn of the Age of Speed
Enduring Courage: Ace Pilot Eddie Rickenbacker and the Dawn of the Age of Speed
by John F. Ross
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.15

5.0 out of 5 stars but this is the best yet. I heartedly recommend this book, 27 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well written, exciting "read" about a classic American hero. It is difficult to believe one man crammed so much adventure into one life. It is also incredible that Eddie Rickenbacker lives a full life. He really did have the proverbial nine lives. There are two other Rickenbacker life stories, but this is the best yet. I heartedly recommend this book.


Report On Steam Carriages
Report On Steam Carriages
by Great Britain. Parliament. House Of Commons. Select Committee On Steam Carriages
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful history book, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wonderful history book. Interesting to read contemporary comments about the earliest steam road locomotives. And, finally, a print on demand book that does not use a stupid, totally irrelevant cover, such as a flower.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge amount of data useful for serious research, 17 July 2014

Huge amount of data useful for serious research. This is a reference book, not a book you read through. Putting all this information into a useable format is a great service to those of us seriously interested in motoring history.

1.0 out of 5 stars This tape is not suitable for hand held tape dispensers ..., 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tape is not suitable for hand held tape dispensers. I showed this tape to a 3M UK executive. He said the product I received is not authorized for sale in the UK and is a type of tape intended for automated packaging machines, not hand held dispensers. he also said he is suspicious that the product I received is counterfeit. The UK product is 48 mm wide and is so markde. What I received is marked 50 mm. There is no part number on the tape I received, which is very suspicious.

When you try to use this product with a hand held dispenser, the tape folds over, sticks to your arm and will not tear cleanly, even with the toothed cutter on a standard 3M hand help dispenser.

This product seems to be misrepresented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mailer at a realistic price, 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Strong, good quality mailer with an excellent sealing system. Buying 150 at a time from this seller gets the price down to a realistic level for a user of modest quantities.


Top Muscle: The Rarest Cars from America's Fastest Decade

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £22.75

5.0 out of 5 stars Well researched book. Good choice of cars., 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was clearly written by someone who really knows American muscle cars. The author picked the best and wrote about them with authority. It is to have a book so well researched and well written. And, the photographs are really great.


Dodge 100 Years
Dodge 100 Years
by Matt DeLorenzo
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £24.01

3.0 out of 5 stars A rather superficial book. Not for the real Dodge enthusiast., 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dodge 100 Years (Hardcover)
This book was a disappointment in that it is rather superficial -- lots of great photos, but the text was clearly thrown together quickly. This book should have been a far more detailed history of Dodge.

1.0 out of 5 stars much better than this tape -- totally different, 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I believe this tape is counterfeit. I have the very same-looking Scotch packaging tape from another source and it is much, much better than this tape -- totally different. This tape is flimsy and almost useless. It gets tangled and does not stick well.
