Weld Like a Pro: Beginning to Advanced Techniques
Welding is an art and skill that's essential for automotive fabrication, repair, and vehicle upgrades. It is also an important skill for countless household projects and industries. Some books show basic welding techniques with steel and cast iron. But this isn't your run-of-the-mill introductory welding book. In this revised edition of the previous title, Advanced Automotive Welding, Jerry Uttrachi, past president of the American Welding Society, shows you how to perform basic welding procedures with steel and cast iron. He also reveals advanced welding techniques and the use of aluminum, titanium, magnesium, stainless steel, and other specialty materials. Projects and techniques focus on automotive applications but they can also be used for welding a bicycle frame, a steel grill, and other everyday fixes. TIG, oxyacetylene, arc, and wire-feed welding processes are detailed, with special coverage on stick and MIG processes. Welding butt and V-joints is explained as well as welding more complex joints, including J- and U-joints. Step-by-step instruction gives you the necessary information to tackle and complete almost any welding job. Popular automotive projects, such as welding an electric fuel pump into an aluminum tank, repairing chrome-moly suspension arms, and welding in floorpans are thoroughly covered. And when it comes to repairing household items, specific projects such as repairing and modifying the steel tubing on an exercise machine, repairing the frame for a decorative bench, and more are covered. Whether you're new to welding, a veteran weldor working with special materials, or involved in a special project, you will find indispensable information within the pages of this book. This book is a 2015 International Automotive Media Competition (IAMC) Silver Medal Winner.

Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman
Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman is also the title of the 2015 documentary about Paul Newman from director Adam Carolla. Read the book that inspired the film! Though he is famous as one of Hollywood's greatest actors, a world-class humanitarian, and the founder of the Newman's Own natural food empire, the late Paul Newman had another intriguing and lesser-known passion: he was an avid, successful, and well-respected car racer and team owner. In Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman, Matt Stone of Motor Trend teams up with Preston Lerner of Automobile magazine to bring you the incredible racing biography of a man whose serious racing days began at an age when many race car drivers contemplate retirement. It is the story of someone who entered the 24 Hours of Daytona at the age of 70 and made his last professional race outing at 82; whose roster of Newman Haas drivers reads like a who's-who of open-wheel racing; and whose interest in cars extended from the likely suspects to old trucks and new hybrids. Newman is also the charming pal who, when a miserably wrecked Ferrari was dropped at his door by the incorrigible prankster Robert Redford, returned the favor by having the car, crushed into a cube, delivered to Redford's living room. The anecdotes, the races, the cars... Winning contains them all, adding up to an award-winning and unprecedented look at Paul Newman's racing talent, unwavering conviction, endearing charm, and enduring spirit.

Woodward Avenue: Cruising the Legendary Strip
Detroit's Woodward Avenue was America's center of gravity for cruising and street racing in the '50s and '60s. Its widely paved surfaces with long sections of arrow-straight road between traffic signals provided the ideal location for stoplight street racing and cruising action. Woodward even became the unofficial test track for the profusion of hot factory iron churned out by Detroit's engineers. If you lived in the Detroit area in the '60s and wanted to drag race, Woodward Avenue was the place to go. Woodward Avenue: Cruising the Legendary Strip is filled with stories from the people who cruised and raced Woodward in that wonderful era. Also featured are the clandestine and not-so-clandestine efforts by the factories to build cars that the Woodward crowd would buy and race. Woodward Avenue includes everything that surrounded Woodward's action, including Detroit's legendary DJs who provided the cruisers' musical soundtrack, the hang-outs and drive-ins, the new car dealerships that provided the high-performance cars, and the legendary speed shops that provided the hot rod parts. If you are into muscle cars, great street racing stories, or just want to remember or learn how it was back in the day, Woodward Avenue: Cruising the Legendary Strip is a great trip down memory lane.
