British Vans & Pick-Ups 1945-1965: Including Camper Vans
Directly after the Second World War, most light commercial vehicles were derived from passenger cars, usually small and with very limited carrying capacity. The most typical of these was the Morris Eight van, which would struggle to cope with the weight of more than five hundred potatoes or to reach 50 mph. By comparison, the Ford Transit of 1965 would carry three times that amount, drove like a car and could maintain speeds of 70 mph with ease. In British Vans & Pick ups 1945-1965 the manufacturers - large and small - are dealt with in A-Z order: Austin, Bedford, Bond, Commer, Douglas, Ford, Jowett, Morris, Morrison, Reliant, Standard, Triumph and Trojan. The author gives a brief history of each and then provides detailed coverage of the various models produced, using the original manufacturers' publicity material for the illustrations not only to identify the vehicles but also to give the flavor of the times when they were to be seen going about their business.

Diesel Performance Handbook for Pickups and SUVs
With gas prices rising (always), alternative fuels look like an answer. Hybrids sound good, but what about the batteries? And fuel cells still seem to be pie-in-the-sky. Which leaves us with good old diesel. This book shows how to get the most out of the diesel engine, at a time when its fuel efficiency is almost as important as its massive torque. Although most diesel truck owners probably aren’t planning to break any land speed records, advances in diesel technology, such as ultra-low-sulfur fuel, high-pressure common-rail fuel injection, electronic fuel management and variable geometry turbocharging, are bringing diesel engines into the performance arena. And this book is the ideal guide for making your diesel engine perform--adapting intake and exhaust, torque converters, engine electronics, turbochargers, and much more.
