Description:

The Art of the Classic Sports Car offers a beautifully illustrated review of decades of high-performance cars from around the globe, all shot in the studio.

Sports cars are the athletes of the automotive world. Always nimble and quick, often powerful, sports cars fly where other cars lumber, and dash where others plod. The definition of a sports car is somewhat fluid, still, most car fans feel that they know a sports car when they see one, and when asked to name a few will rattle off Jaguar, Corvette, Triumph, MG, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lotus, Alfa-Romeo, BMW, and many others.

Sports cars have offered road and track excitement for nearly 100 years. The original cars evolved for racing, but their appeal and popularity ensured that production versions were soon available for those whose sporting intents never left the boulevard or winding back road.

The Art of the Classic Sports Car offers enthusiasts a beautifully illustrated review of several decades of high-performance cars, featuring cars from around the globe all shot in the studio to ensure a handsome book. Each featured car includes a profile discussing the car's place in sports car history along with technical and performance specs as well as a smattering of historical images and period ads.

Description:

It's hard to ignore a classic hot rod. Both men and women alike admire these automotive masterpieces. It doesn't matter if they are parked on the side of a street or racing down the blacktop. Hot rods are always going to grab everyone's attention.

Now you can enjoy coloring 20 awesome hot rods. Each vehicle has been meticulously hand drawn by Jordan Biggio, automotive enthusiast and illustrator.

Designed to appeal to car lovers of all ages. Beginners will love the large open spaces giving them plenty of area to lay down solid colors. No artistic skill is required in order to make a jaw dropping masterpiece. Advanced colorists will enjoy using the line art to apply shading techniques that make the hot rods come to life.

As a bonus each hot rod design is printed twice in this book. Not only does this give you the opportunity to color each vehicle twice, it also gives you a clean slate in case you make a mistake! It is like having two copies of the same book.

As a second bonus, both the front and back cover are printed with a matte finish. This means you can color them too! Enjoy these jaw dropping hot rods, from the massive engine blocks to the road hugging tires.

Each hot rod is printed on one side of 60 lb pure white paper to minimize scoring and bleed-through. We suggest using crayons and high quality colored pencils for the best results. Markers and gel pens work as well, but we suggest placing a piece of scratch paper between the pages to prevent the excessive bleed-through these coloring mediums are known for. Please note the pages in this adult coloring book are not perforated.

I have always loved the sleek curves of the automotive world. From the classic look of a 1958 Plymouth Fury to the ground shaking V8 power of the Pontiac Firebird and everything in between. I have yet to see an automobile that I don't admire. I have been sketching cars since I was a young boy and now my sketches give you the awesome ability to color the front bumper, rear bumper and everything in between.

What are you waiting for? Get a copy today and start coloring in these awesome hot rods!

Description:

Great collector cars are still out there--just waiting to be found!

Sadly, there is very little reality in reality TV. That wouldn't be so bad except for the fact that these shows are the only TV shows for the barn-find collector car aficionado.

Barn Find Road Trip is the antidote to all the manufactured collector "reality" shows. It's a real-world, barn-find banzai run in which auto archaeologist Tom Cotter, his car collector pal Brian Barr, and photographer Michael Alan Ross embarked on a 14-day collector-car-seeking adventure with no predetermined destinations. It's barn-find freestyle! Roaming the Southeast, they documented their day-to-day car search in photos and through stories and interviews. This trip is absolutely real and the same kind of junket any gearhead with the skills, knowledge, and time can undertake.

Cotter and company hit the road in Cotter's 1939 Ford Woody, the kind of car that opened doors and started the conversations that revealed where interesting cars were squirreled away. The result? The discovery of over 1,000 collector cars and some of the most amazing barn-find stories Cotter has yet unearthed, all accompanied by Ross' evocative photography. If you love stories of automotive adventure, this is the book for you!
