Automobile heritage encompasses a complex range of artefacts and activities. Beyond just historic vehicles which are the primary artefacts of this niche, it also includes communities of collectors and enthusiasts, private owners and public institutions, as well as historic motoring environments, literally thousands of museums, exhibitions and car shows throughout the world, and a range of paraphernalia that includes both original and replicated promotional materials, equipment and parts, and guide books. Although automobile heritage has been the subject of some limited research, Automobile Heritage and Tourism is unique in examining its scope and role within tourism. The book looks at a vast array of topics, from the experience of using and collecting old cars, related destination development, automobile heritage and museums, to events such as vintage automobile racing, promotion and social change. It thereby provides a thorough review of the impacts of automobile heritage on tourism. A number of theories provide a framework and are analysed throughout, including those related to the collection, display, exhibition and use of historic automobiles. The title takes a global and interdisciplinary view of the subject with international contributions from both established and emerging scholars in the field. This book adds to the industrial heritage tourism literature and will appeal to a diverse audience, in particular those in the fields of cultural heritage and industrial heritage tourism, but also practitioners involved with the planning, restoration, exhibition and management of automobile heritage attractions and events.

The variety of cars, colors and the sense of history come to life makes vintage racing one of the most thrilling and popular forms of motorsport competition. As Stirling Moss observes, It has to be a very blase person who doesn't feel their adrenaline rising when the starter's flag fails.Author Terry Jackson has interviewed racers, tuners, and race organizers to create the most comprehensive, authoritative guide to vintage racing. His book takes you marque-by-marque through the exciting -- and still relatively affordable -- British sports cars. Jackson tells you how to select and buy a car that's best for your budget, with tips such as where you need to look for characteristic problems like rot on the Morgan's wooden frame or chassis damage on a Lotus 7. You will then learn how to expertly prepare your car for the track, even if you've never raced before.This is the only book that offers race-proven preparation tips and modifications for each model, modifications that improve power, handling and reliability. For example, how to build an Austin-Healey 3000 engine to factory rally specifications that produces over 200 horsepower, or the way to rework an AC Bristol's front leaf spring for more cornering grip.The book is richly illustrated with 225 photographs, including fascinating historical shots of designers like Jaguar's Sir William Lyons and Lotus' Colin Chapman, factory race teams, and cars in competition. This is the essential book for all vintage racers and British car enthusiasts, and for those who want to prepare a high performance street car.The author has done much research, picked the brains of hundreds of people, and gleaned an enormous amount of hard-earnedexpertise. I thought I had quite a few answers, but I must admit that it taught me quite a bit! This is a book you can learn from and enjoy. -- Stirling MossOne heck of an effort...a step-by-step guide for the enthusiast who wants to race an AC, Aston, Healey, Mini, Jag, Lotus, MG, Morgan, Sunbeam, or Triumph. -- Vintage Motorsport

More than just a car, the Mini is the most fun-filled and spectacularly successful British car ever built- and now it's back with a new design for the 21st century. 'The Mini: the Making of a Modern Icon' celebrates 50 momentous years of a British design classic, and looks to the future with a special section on the relaunched Mini. 'The Mini' tells the complete story of this most legendary of cars: the unlikely genius who designed it; the Goon who first made it popular; the Lords and Ladies, call-girls and rock stars, swingers and hippies who drove it - at the same time taking a revealing look at Britain's last half century. Not surprisingly, the car that set London swinging and at the same time wowed the rally driving circuit, attracted a legion of famous fans from the entertainment and motor racing worlds - and the book features numerous original photographs and interviews with people such as Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan, Sterling Moss, Jamie Blandford, Jeremy Clarkson, Damon Hill, Britt Ekland, Twiggy, John Lennon and Paul McCartney. But behind the glitz and glamour of the Mini as an icon was the struggle to make money and a sad decline that exemplified the British motor industry. The book examines the troubled history of the company that made it, the struggles between workers and management, and their role in the decline of the original Mini - and now the miraculous rebirth of an all-new Mini.
