Ford's classic '32, equipped with a behemoth engine and modified for speed is everything a hot rod should be. They certainly don't make 'em like this anymore. We're talking about the car that launched the hot rod subculture: Ford's 1932 Deuce. With its stylish lines, timeless grille, and flowing fenders, Ford's Deuce coupe pretty much defines the term "hot rod." The breadth of creativity this classic design has inspired for generations of hot rod builders is on full display in Deuce. Ford's '32 was an immediate hit. By 1931, the Model A was obsolete in a marketplace where drivers wanted more style and power. The design goals for the '32 Ford could be summarized as "more": more cylinders, more horsepower, and more style. The resulting car achieved its objectives and then some. It was faster, more comfortable, more refined - a masterpiece of industrial design, yet still affordable. Henry Ford and his design team got it right. As the Deuce transitioned to the used car market, it drew the attention of those with a need for speed. Stripped down with an emphasis on performance, the Deuce became the bedrock of the burgeoning hot rod movement. To this day, it very much defines what a hot rod should look like. Hot rodders took Henry's master stroke to a whole other place, and Deuce stands as a tribute to their ongoing ingenuity.

Based on the latest National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) Automobile Accreditation Tasks Lists, Fundamentals of Automotive Technology offers comprehensive coverage of every task with clarity and precision in a concise format that ensures student comprehension and encourages critical thinking. Automotive technicians needs to know how to safely and effectively perform maintenance, diagnose, and repair automobiles. Fundamentals of Automotive Technology provides all of the critical knowledge and skills necessary for technicians to perform these essential tasks. Current Content 2012 NATEF tasks are provided at the beginning of each chapter. The task tables indicate the level of each task—Maintenance & Light Repair (MLR), Auto Service Technology (AST), and Master Auto Service Technology (MAST), and include page references for easy access to coverage. Relaxed, Readable Textbook Fundamentals of Automotive Technology is written in a clear, accessible language creating a learning environment in which students are comfortable with the material presented. That comfort level creates an effective and engaging learning experience for students, translating into better understanding and retention, ultimately leading to better pass rates. Reinforcement of Concepts This text is written on the premise that students require a solid foundation in the basics followed by appropriate reinforcement of the concepts learned. Reinforcement is provided with written step-by-step explanations and visual summaries of skills and procedures. Each chapter also concludes with a comprehensive bulleted list summarizing the chapter content, and ASE-type questions to help students test critical thinking skills and gauge comprehension. Clear Application to Real-World Practice Case studies begin each chapter, capturing students’ attention and encouraging critical thinking. Safety, Technician, and Caring for the Customer tip boxes provide real-world advice from experienced technicians. Fundamentals of Automotive Technology gives students a genuine context for the application of the knowledge presented in the chapter. This approach makes it clear how all of this new information will be used in the shop.

Addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of phase transformation in alloys, this text formulates significant aspects of the quantitative metallurgy of phase transformations. It further applies solid-state theoretical concepts to structure problems arising in experimental studies of real alloys. Author Armen G. Khachaturyan, Professor of Materials Science at Rutgers University, ranks among the foremost authorities on this subject. In this volume, he takes a creative approach to examining change in atomic structure and morphology caused by ordering, strain-induced ordering, strain-controlled decomposition, and strain-induced coarsening. Unifying relationships among various fields of solid-state physics are stressed throughout the book. Topics include structure changes in two-phase alloys controlled by the phase transformation elastic strain, in addition to important results in the area of microscopic elasticity regarding problems of elastic interaction in impurity atoms, and strain-induced ordering and decomposition in interstitial solutions. An excellent text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in physical metallurgy, solid state physics, solid state chemistry, and materials science, this volume is also a valuable reference for professionals conducting research in phase transformations

The sport compact performance market is hot and getting hotter - and while the Honda Civic and Acura Integra have long been the dominant players in the market, a newcomer is emerging as a popular car for performance modifications - The Ford Focus. Well-built, inexpensive, good looking, and easy to modify, the Focus is quickly catching the Hondas in terms of market popularity. This book shows Focus owners exactly what it takes to improve their car's performance, from simple modifications like installing a new air intake to radical mods like installing a turbocharger. The author also shows what those modifications can do, with before-and-after dyno tests for each modification. There's also extensive info on suspension and brake modifications for better handling and braking. It's a one-stop shop for those who want a sharper, faster Focus.
