Das "caterpillar jahrhundert" begann eines Abends im mai 1905 - aber eigentlich reichen die Wurzeln dieser Erfolgsgeschichte bis ins Jahr 1886 zurück, als Benjamin Holt und Daniel best bereits gemeinsam innovative Landmaschinen fertigten. 1925, als The Holt Manufacturing Company und die C.L. Best Tractor Co. sich endgültig unter dem Firmennamen Caterpillar zusammenschlossen, hatten beide Unternehmen bereits zahlreiche Erfolge bei der Entwicklung von traktoren, Erntemaschinen und anderen landwirtschaftlichen Gerätschaften errungen. In den vergangenen 100 Jahren wuchs die Produktpalette von Caterpillar jedoch weit über den Agrarbereich hinaus. Das Unternehmen entwickelte sich bis heute zur Top marke in der Branche der Erdbewegungsmaschinen. Für alle Liebhaber von schwerem gerät wie Dampftraktoren, Bulldozern, riesigen Muldenkippern und radladern ein echter Leckerbissen.

101 Guitars That Rocked the World

These are the guitars so famous that their names are often household words: B. B. King’s Lucille, Eric Clapton’s Blackie, Stevie Ray Vaughan’s First Wife, Billy F Gibbons’ Pearly Gates, Neil Young’s Old Black, and many more. Here’s the first-ever illustrated history of the actual guitars of the stars that made the music. Other best-selling guitar histories look at the rank-and-file models, but this book is unique in profiling the actual “star guitars”—the million-dollar babies, such as the 1968 Stratocaster that Jimi Hendrix burned at Woodstock, which sold at Sotheby’s auction house in 1993 for $1,300,000. Amateurs buy guitars to emulate the stars—Clapton’s Strat, Slash’s Les Paul—and this book explains the stars’ modifications, thus showing how others can recreate those famous tones.

Hot Rod Pin-Ups II

Gearhead Girls and Dragstrip Dolls

Following on the success of his 2005 bestseller Hot Rod Pin-ups, ace photographer David Perry offers an all-new collection of images winningly riffing on the timeless theme of girls ’n’ cars—specifically, girls ‘n’ hot rods. In the garage, on the road, at the race, these sumptuous pictures by the acknowledged master of contemporary hot rod pin-up photography recall classic 1950s illustrators like Vargas and Elvgren. But the beauties in Perry’s photographs have been transported to--and, it seems, transported by--the cluttered chop shops, deafening drag strips, and dusty highways that hot rods call home. Sharing top billing are the cars of many of today’s top builders, as well as painstakingly perfect wardrobes and settings. Essays by male and female stars of the hot rod world round out this delightful book.

Doch dann hat er’s raus und konzentriert sich auf die wirklich wichtigen Dinge: Riesenburger, Superkräfte, einen Job für seine Mutter.
