Beetles and badges

The air-cooled VW Beetle, like the Model-T Ford and the original Issigonis Mini, will still be held in high regard by many of us. So it is opportune that Veloce Publishing have published a large-format book in the Beetle's memory, Volkswagen — The air-cooled car in colour by Richard Copping. This 171-page book (ISBN 1-904788-92-0, £24.99) covers all the Beetle models, Karmann Ghia, Transporters,...

Dodge dynamite!

50 years of Dodge muscle cars Peter Grist This covers a lot of ground in a relatively small space. It's all there from brief mention of the Dodge brothers' first steps producing bicycles and auto parts, and their early association with Ford, to the advent of the first Dodge car in 1914 and on to early NASCAR racers, through the streamlined, homologation special, Dodge Charger Daytona, the '...

Standard & Standard - Triumph

Standard & Standard - Triumph, by Brian Long. Veloce Publishing, £19.99. The history of the Standard Motor Co was well provided for by JR Davy 26 years ago (for 15/-, or 75p) but there is room for this large format refresher. I liked this new coverage, with its good pictures (no colour, for a change), a chapter on the Triumph connection, others on specialist coachbuilders, Standard commercial...

Forghieri on Ferrari1947 to presentMauro Forghieri and Daniele Buzzonetti "Unlike [Vittorio] Jano, I had the advantage of not being known in the GP world, so no way was I obstructed as I photographed the more interesting details of their cars..." It's spring 1962 and young Mauro Forghieri is part of a Ferrari factory group on an exploratory mission to Britain, to see how companies based in motor...

Volkswagen Beetle — The Rise From The Ashes Of War

Volkswagen Beetle — The Rise From The Ashes Of War, by Simon Parkinson. Veloce Publishing, £14.99. Here is the extraordinary story of Wolfsburg as it developed so miraculously after the war, a sort of extension of that scooped years ago in Safer Motoring. Absolutely fascinating, although the many pictures are mostly darkly dreary, obviously unavoidably. Great detail, so another addition to...

When Nuvolari Raced, by Val-erio Moretti. Veloce publishing, £75 (leather binding £225).

When Nuvolari Raced, by Valerie Moretti. Veloce Publishing, 175 (leather binding £225). It is futile trying to compare the top racing drivers of quite different eras, although it is done. Surely, in the pre-war period, Italian Tazio Nuvolari was the greatest? And here is a very great book to commemorate him. It was chosen by the Mantuan Committee on Nuvolari's Centenary, in fact, to be the...

Veloce, not Virgin

Sir, Thank you for the review of Michael Oliver's Lotus 49 book. Unfortunately, it attributes the book to Virgin instead of Veloce Publishing, gives the book's price at £30 (instead of £40 & £50) and has the wrong ISBN number (should be 1-901295-51-6 'Gold Leaf' edition and 1-901295-75-3 'BRG' edition). I AM, YOURS, ETC Rod Grainger, Publisher, Veloce Publishing
