Fins - Harley Earl, the Rise of General Motors, and the Glory Days of Detroit (Hardcover): William Knoedelseder Fins - Harley Earl, the Rise of General Motors, and the Glory Days of Detroit (Hardcover)

The New York Times bestselling author of Bitter Brew chronicles the birth and rise to greatness of the American auto industry through the remarkable life of Harley Earl, an eccentric six-foot-five, stuttering visionary who dropped out of college and went on to invent the profession of automobile styling, thereby revolutionized the way cars were made, marketed, and even imagined. Harleys Earl's story qualifies as a bona fide American family saga. It began in the Michigan pine forest in the years after the Civil War, traveled across the Great Plains on the wooden wheels of a covered wagon, and eventually settled in a dirt road village named Hollywood, California, where young Harley took the skills he learned working in his father's carriage shop and applied them to designing sleek, racy-looking automobile bodies for the fast crowd in the burgeoning silent movie business. As the 1920s roared with the sound of mass manufacturing, Harley returned to Michigan, where, at GM's invitation, he introduced art into the rigid mechanics of auto-making. Over the next thirty years, he functioned as a kind of combination Steve Jobs and Tom Ford of his time, redefining the form and function of the country's premier product. His impact was profound. When he retired as GM's VP of Styling in 1958, Detroit reigned as the manufacturing capitol of the world and General Motors ranked as the most successful company in the history of business. Knoedelseder tells the story in ways both large and small, weaving the history of the company with the history of Detroit and the Earl family as Fins examines the effect of the automobile on America's economy, culture, and national psyche.

This is the story of the static caravan holiday home, a staple of the classic British holiday, from its 1930s/1940s origins when touring caravanners found a spot on a plot of land on a farm and pitched up until winter. Sites quickly sprang up, and manufacturers began designing caravans for this sole purpose. The mobile home first appeared with postwar housing shortages but by the 1960s holiday caravans were larger and specifically designed for holiday let. The '60s/'70s saw new models become more home-like, and the 1980s saw another surge in designs. With over 30 manufacturers, exports into Europe were high too. With 140 images and many contributors' memories, this book brings the story up to date and shows how sophisticated the static holiday home has become.

Few things are as synonymous with London as its famous red buses, thousands of which carry millions of passengers a year on hundreds of separate routes. Yet since the withdrawal from service of the much-loved Routemaster in the mid-2000s, none of its replacements has succeeded in generating the same kind of affection among the travelling public. Now, however, the stylish, Thomas Heatherwick-designed New Routemaster looks set to recapture the imagination of Londoners and visitors alike. In The New Routemaster, automotive expert Tony Lewin tells the remarkable and compelling story of this, the latest incarnation of the London bus, from its very public genesis in 2008 to its first scheduled journey in 2012. Contributions from key personnel provide a unique insight into the detailed thinking behind this innovative vehicle, which is notable as much for its stunning design as its precision engineering, while an illustrated survey of London's buses down the ages places it in context. Beautifully designed and richly illustrated throughout, The New Routemaster is the fitting and must-have account of the most significant London bus since the 1960s - a Routemaster for the twenty-first century.
