The Ferrari 250 GTO is one of the most successful and highly regarded cars ever produced. Built purely for racing, the 250 GTO dominated the Grand Touring racing category in the period 1962–64 and raced in all of the world's sports car classics, including Le Mans. Ferrari built just 40 production cars, and almost all were raced. Because of its sheer beauty, its immensely successful track record and the relatively small number of cars built, the 250 GTO is among the world’s most valuable cars and examples now change hands for sums in excess of $10 million.

This book tells the fascinating story of the last and most successful of the Iso AC/3 Grifo race cars from the fabulous period of sports car racing in the mid-1960s. The A3/C was the creation of Giotto Bizzarrini, the engineer who developed the famed Ferrari 250 GTO. In its short but varied racing career, which included outings with two Grand Prix drivers, '22'' showed itself to be one of the world's fastest racing sports and GT cars, its top speed on the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans, nearly 190mph, bettered only by the 7-liter Ford GT Mk II. This book celebrates the life of '222' and the against-the-odds efforts of Bizzarrini, a genius with the ambition to produce the best GT race car of its era.

This book tells the remarkable history of an Alfa Romeo Monza and its characterful drivers and owners, some with life stories worthy of a movie script. Built in 1933, ‘221130’ was raced that year by the Hon. Brian Lewis and won its debut at Brooklands and the arduous Mannin Moar race on the Isle of Man. The car continued to be raced until the war by John Cobb (1934) who later was a land speed record holder, Luis Fontes (1935) who was also an aeroplane racer, Anthony Powys-Lybbe (1936–37) and Fay Taylour (1938) who was interned during the Second World War for her Fascist links, at venues as diverse as Vila Real (Portugal) and Phoenix Park (Ireland). Post-war, a succession of notable owners included Peter Hampton, the Hon. Patrick Lindsay and Hubert Fabri, all passionate collectors, to arrive at its status today as one of the more important surviving Monzas, and a car with so much charisma and historic interest that it is a most worthy addition to the acclaimed ‘Great Cars’ series

As the first comprehensive homage to the R and RS models, this is a must-have for all Porsche 911 lovers. At auctions they rack up premium prices, but the makers of the 911 R never intended to create objects of speculation for maximum profit. Their main concern was developing vehicles that would appeal to customers because of their uncompromising sportiness. The story begins 50 years ago, when the first Porsche 911 R achieved five new long-distance world records in Monza; and goes on to the latest 911 R - a car that is aware of its history, with racing stripes, houndstooth bucket seats, manual gear change, and a free-revving naturally aspirated engine. In between the first and the latest lie 50 years, numerous models, and a legion of fans.

Interest in heroin is surging back after years of dormancy. Why? Supply and demand! Drug cartels have increased the supply of heroin, so that it is cheaper and purer than ever before. Secondly, the Federal government’s recent crack down on poplar prescription opiates like OxcyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin so they are increasingly hard and costly to obtain on the black market. A recent study reveals that people who had recently abused prescription opiates are 19th times more likely to try heroin. Fueled by a boom in supply and a decline in cost, heroin use is up around the nation and spreading to segments of the population once considered unlikely users. "Cool people are doing it!” Remember the old slogan: "Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n Roll”? Heroin has a sexy side--very sexy. Black Opium: Ecstasy of the Forbidden brings heroin’s sexy visions to life. The world of black opium is a forbidden world where human bodies find themselves possessed and driven by desires which consume them in the flames of hot-blooded ecstasy, Black Opium describes every aspect of an opium smoker’s life in lurid detail. Often compared to James Joyces' Dubliners, Farrère’s Black Opium consists of seventeen compelling tales delineating six periods in the history and use of opium. This edition of Black Opium is a reissue of And/Or Press’ 1974 Fitz Hugh Ludlow edition, which features salacious illustrations by Alexander King, and the addition of a Foreword by Dr. Moraes.

The Dino, named after Enzo Ferrari's late son, may have lacked the outright speed of its 12-cylinder contemporaries, but in its various manifestations it was amongst the most stylish and affordable of Ferraris. Benefiting from a legacy of achievement on both road and track, today the series is rightly regarded as providing some of the most coveted classic sports cars. Ferrari Dino is a comprehensive guide, not only to the three models carried in the book's title, but also to the associated models which shared the Dino name. The author traces the series through its progressively more powerful V6 and V8 engines, its ever widening choice of body styles, and the racing career of the purpose-built competition models.
