'An Introduction to Modern Vehicle Design' provides a thorough introduction to the many aspects of passenger car design in one volume. Starting with basic principles, the author builds up analysis procedures for all major aspects of vehicle and component design. Subjects of current interest to the motor industry, such as failure prevention, designing with modern materials, ergonomics and control systems are covered in detail, and the author concludes with a discussion on the future trends in automobile design. With contributions from both academics lecturing in motor vehicle engineering and those working in the industry, "An Introduction to Modern Vehicle Design" provides students with an excellent overview and background in the design of vehicles before they move on to specialised areas. Filling the niche between the more descriptive low level books and books which focus on specific areas of the design process, this unique volume is essential for all students of automotive engineering. Only book to cover the broad range of topics for automobile design and analysis procedures Each topic written by an expert with many years experience of the automotive industry

Canada’s automotive "Dr. Phil" says there’s never been a better time to buy a new car or truck. For deals on wheels, 2013 will be a "perfect storm." There’s never been a better time to buy a new car or truck, thanks to a stronger Canadian dollar, a worldwide recession driving prices downward, and a more competitive Japanese auto industry that’s still reeling from a series of natural disasters. In addition to lower prices and more choices, 2013 car buyers will see more generous cash rebates, low financing rates, bargain leases, and free auto maintenance programs. Buy, sell, or hold? Which cars and trucks are "wallet-friendly" and can easily last 15 years? Which vehicles offer the most features to best accommodate senior drivers? Do ethanol and hybrid fuel-saving claims have more in common with Harry Potter than the Society of Automotive Engineers? Is GM’s 2013 Volt electric car destined to become an electric Edsel? These questions and more are answered in this informative guide.

"Mark Ribowsky has written one king hell of a book about one king hell of a band. Buy that man a drink!" —Mick Wall, author of When Giants Walked the Earth This book tells the intimate story of how a band of lost souls and self-destructive misfits clawed their way to the very top of the rock'n'roll peak, writing and performing as if beneficiaries of a deal with the devil—a deal fulfilled by a tragic fall from the sky. The rudderless genius behind their ascent was a man named Ronnie Van Zant, who guided their five-year run and evolved not just a new country/rock idiom but a new Confederacy. Whiskey Bottles and Brand-New Cars is based on interviews with surviving band members and others who watched them. It gives a new perspective to a history of stage fights, motel-room destructions, cunning business deals, and brilliant studio productions, offering a greater appreciation for a band that, in the aftermath of its last plane ride, has sadly descended into self-caricature as the sort of lowbrow guns-'n'-God cliché that Ronnie Van Zant wanted to chuck from around his neck. No other book on Southern rock has ever captured the "Free Bird"–like sweep and significance of Lynyrd Skynyrd. Mark Ribowsky has written twelve books, including widely praised biographies of Tom Landry, Howard Cosell, Phil Spector, and Satchel Paige. He has also contributed extensively to magazines including Playboy, Penthouse, and High Times. He lives in Boca Raton, Florida.

This book explains how the car, as a structure, behaves in various types of accidents. In order to understand such behaviour the special features of car structures and the elementary physics of car collisions are explained. These ideas are the applied to roll-overs, side impacts, head-on collisions, etc. The reader is then shown how accidents can be analysed. The existing international rules for the design of car structures are also studied and it soon becomes apparent that these rules are inadequate in many respects. This is probably the main reason why racing drivers survive the severest accidents but many ordinary motorists do not survive crashes at one quarter of the speed.
