This book will get those hopefuls off the sidelines by showing how a hot rod can be built for less than the cost of, say, a new Hyundai.

He provides a detailed, easy-to-follow guide for building a car of your own. The advice and instructions cover every aspect of an affordable hot rod build, from establishing the target vehicle and budget, to finding parts, building the car, and fine tuning the finished vehicle on the road. With Parks' money-saving tips and photo-supported how-to sequences, virtually anyone with minimal mechanical skills and the will to use them can be sure of building their hot rod right, and for the right price. The book also includes a full resource guide and recommendations for further reading.

Exterior, interior, suspension, wheels, engine, driveline--it’s all here, from getting the parts to installing them properly. The methods may be innovative, the parts and process may be inexpensive, but the result is still going to be over-the-top.

High Fidelity

Der Kultroman von Nick HornbyDer 35-jährige Robert Fleming ist Besitzer eines mehr schlecht als recht laufenden Plattenladens und soeben von seiner beruflich erfolgreichen Freundin Laura wegen seiner Antriebs- und Orientierungslosigkeit verlassen worden – weil er sich weigert, erwachsen zu werden. Rob hat grundsätzlich Probleme mit Veränderungen, in seinem Geschäft werden ausschließlich Schallplatten aus Vinyl verkauft, neumodische CDs kommen nicht infrage. In seinem Leben dreht sich alles um Popmusik. Wer nicht mindestens 500 Schallplatten besitzt, dem verweigert er jeglichen Respekt. Nach Lauras Auszug sucht er erst einmal Trost darin, seine Plattensammlung neu zu sortieren, und zwar nicht chronologisch, nicht alphabetisch, sondern autobiografisch. Rob unternimmt den Versuch, sein Leben zu bilanzieren, und geht der Frage nach, warum seine Beziehungen immer scheitern. Um die Frage zu beantworten, versucht er die fünf Frauen, die ihm am meisten Liebeskummer zugefügt haben, ausfindig zu machen und zu treffen. Immer wieder versucht er sich einzureden, dass Liebeskummer in seinem Alter nicht mehr wirklich bedeutend sei, sondern nur lästig wie ein Schnupfen oder Geldmangel, und dass das Singleleben durchaus viele Vorzüge biete. Doch auch das Herumhängen mit seinen Angestellten Dick und Barry im Plattenladen, zwei Geschmacksfundamentalisten, die er allerdings mehr als tragische Gestalten und weniger als wirkliche Freunde begreift, und eine Affäre mit einer Sängerin füllen ihn nicht aus. Als er reflektiert, dass seine Exfreundin Laura mit ihrer Kritik nicht immer ganz falsch lag und sich Schallplatten und Frauen nicht ausschließen, hat er nur noch eins im Sinn: sie wieder zurückzugewinnen. Nick Hornbys literarische Bearbeitung der eigenartigen Beziehung von Männern zu Schallplatten wurde rasch zum Erfolgsroman und war monatelang auf den Bestsellerlisten. Die Verfilmung des Romans im Jahre 1999 durch Stephen Frears trug darüber hinaus zur Popularität von High Fidelity bei.
