Genre: Transportation

From the earliest curvaceous coupes by Bertone, through the more aggressively styled Zagato SS to the very special TZ models and on to the final 1750 and 2000 cars, the Giulia coupes offer a remarkable variety. In the 1960s and 70s enthusiasts could delight to the sight and sound of the Alfas on the race tracks, but now that they are no longer in production, surviving examples of the Giulia coupes are greatly appreciated by those same enthusiasts. So many Giulias succumbed to the rust for which Italian cars of the 60s and 70s were notorious only makes the possession of a good example all the more desirable and this book will persuade many more people of the undoubted merits of these sporting coupes.

Among the many famous toy companies examined are Tri-ang and Brimtoy (Great Britain); Norev and Minialuxe (France); Gama and Siku (Germany); Ingap and Politoys (Italy); Rico and Paya (Spain). In addition, light is shed for the first time on the history of many smaller and more obscure brands of plastic toy cars.

Forza Minardi

ISBN: 9781845841607
Release Date: 2008-05-15
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

After 20 years of glorious ‘failure’, the best-loved team in Formula One is consigned to the history books, and it deserves one of its own. Minardi had a successful time in Formula Two until the tiny Italian outfit was ready to hit the big time in 1985. It somehow survived in F1’s shark-infested waters as bigger teams (Lotus, Arrows, Tyrrell) were dragged under. They have a truly international fan-base and are the ‘second team’ of most F1 devotees. Minardi is held in such affection as everyone loves the plucky underdog – Minardi’s annual budget would have lasted one month at the other Italian team up the road. Yet, from its plant in Faenza near Bologna, Minardi has produced cars that qualify, sometimes score points and often lead the way in their technology. Gian Carlo Minardi also developed a reputation as a fabulous talent-spotter – Fisichella, Trulli, Webber and the youngest ever World Champion Alonso all started their F1 careers with Minardi. For the last five years, Minardi was owned by controversial Australian tycoon Paul Stoddart. Cast as David against the Goliath of F1’s governing body, Stoddart constantly hit the headlines as he tried to get a more equal share of the sport’s billions. Ultimately, he failed and Red Bull has now bought the team. Despite a petition of 15,000 names, the Minardi name has vanished from the F1 grid and true motorheads miss it. This is the one and only inside account, with exclusive, comprehensive interviews with bosses, drivers and engineers. 140 unique photos complete this revalationary tale.
