The Ford Bronco is a sport utility vehicle that was produced from 1966 to 1996, with five distinct generations. The Bronco permanently entered American popular culture on June 17, 1994, when a white 1992 model owned and driven by Al Cowlings with O. J. Simpson, who was wanted for the murders of his ex-wife and her friend, attempted to elude the Los Angeles Police Department in a low-speed chase, which was nationally televised and viewed by millions nationwide. This is complete story from conception through discontinuation in 1996, told by historian (and well-known "Ford guy") Paul McLaughlin utilizing his large collection of photographs, brochures, ads and other promotional material. Follow the Bronco's various incarnations from a small sport utility vehicle of the 1960s and 1970s into the larger full-size Bronco of the 1980s and 1990s, special models like the "Bill Stroppe Edition", "Eddie Bauer Specials", the Bronco II and other juicy tidbits like the Bronco concept vehicle that Ford took on the car show circuit in 2005 (which got Bronco enthusiasts so excited that Ford was going to add a Bronco vehicle to their lineup once again). Also covered are the Broncos that were raced in off-road desert racing, Bronco toys and other collectibles, specification sheets, production numbers, and other interesting facts. Finally, a book for all Bronco enthusiasts!

One of the most popular pickup trucks to ever hit the highways and byways was the compact-sized Ford Ranger pickup that was in production from 1983 through 2011. During that twenty eight year period more than 6 million of them were produced and many of them are still working today. Covers all models of the Ranger from the XL to the sporty Splash, 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive models from the earliest days through to the last days when Ford decided to end production. Includes information about standard and optional equipment, specifications and other pertinent facts, over 300 photographs, and also includes Ford's compact-sized sport utility vehicle, the Bronco II, which was based on the Ranger platform.

GIs returning after World War II created an entirely new automotive market niche when they bought surplus Jeeps and began exploring the rugged backcountry of the American West. This burgeoning market segment, which eventually became known as sport utility vehicles (SUVs), numbered about 40,000 units per year with offerings from Jeep, Scout, Toyota, and Land Rover. In 1966, Ford entered the fray with its Bronco, offering increased refinement, more power, and an innovative coil-spring front suspension. The Bronco caught on quickly and soon established a reputation as a solid backcountry performer. In Baja, the legendary accomplishments of racers such as Parnelli Jones, Rod Hall, and Bill Stroppe further cemented the bobtail’s reputation for toughness. Ford moved upstream with the introduction of the larger Bronco for 1978, witnessing a huge increase in sales for the second-generation trucks. The Twin Traction Beam front end was introduced in the third generation, and further refinements including more aerodynamic styling, greater luxury, and more powerful fuel-injected engines came on board in the generations that followed. Through it all, the Bronco retained its reputation as a tough, versatile, and comfortable rig, both on and off the paved road. With the reintroduction of the Bronco for 2020, Ford is producing a vehicle for a whole new generation of enthusiasts that looks to bring modern styling and performance to the market while building on the 30-year heritage of the first five generations of the Bronco so dearly loved by their owners. From the development process and details of the first trucks through the 1996 models, author Todd Zuercher shares technical details, rarely seen photos, and highlights of significant models along with the stories of those people whose lives have been intertwined with the Bronco for many years. This book will have new information for everyone and will be a must-have for longtime enthusiasts and new owners alike! p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Arial; color: #000000}

Though American Motors never approached the size of Detroit’s Big Three, it produced a long series of successful cars that were distinctive, often innovative and in many cases influential. This history examines AMC’s cars from the company’s formation in 1954 through its absorption by Chrysler in 1987. The Gremlin, Pacer and Eagle vehicles are examined in detail, as are the AMC custom cars of George Barris and Carl Green. The text details AMC’s 1980s involvement with the French firm Renault and the design legacy of that joint venture, which includes the Hummer. The evolution of Jeep is covered from the 1960s through the 2000s. Features include some 225 photographs; a listing of AMC / Rambler clubs, organizations and business entities, with contact details; tables of detailed specifications and performance data; data on technical devices, trim packages and all model variations; a comprehensive account of AMC / Rambler appearances in film, television and cartoons.

Playing in the “Basketball Mecca” of Madison Square Garden, the New York Knickerbockers are a team steeped in history. With origins dating back to 1946 in the Basketball Association of America, the Knicks were a charter member of the NBA and have boasted a long list of all-time great players, from Harry “The Horse” Gallatin to Walt “Clyde” Frazier and Bill Bradley, Patrick Ewing and John Starks, to current stars Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire, as well as such legendary coaches as Red Holtzman and Pat Riley. The legend of the New York Knicks has been enhanced by several heated rivalries over the course of the team’s history: from Bill Russell and the Boston Celtics in the late 1960s, to 1990s battles with Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, Reggie Miller and the Indiana Pacers, and Alonzo Mourning’s Miami Heat. Today, as the Knicks emerge as a team on the rise, these Eastern Conference rivalries are fierce once again. New York Knicks: The Complete Illustrated History presents the full history of this storied franchise, with all the on-court feats and off-court exploits of the orange and blue. Profiles of the top players and coaches from the team’s history, along with a rich collection of photography and memorabilia, create the ultimate, authoritative celebration of a beloved basketball team.
