The Firebird and Trans Am were distinctly different than the Chevy Camaro, and many Firebird and Trans Am models became stand-out muscle cars of their era. In fact, when the high-performance wars in Detroit subsided in the early 1970s, the Trans Am remained as the sole surviving muscle car. About 1.2 million Firebirds and Trans Ams were built from 1970 to 1981. Second-generation Pontiac F-Body cars have emerged because some cars are affordable while others are extremely rare and valuable. In particular, the 1970–1974 Pontiac Super Duty Trans Ams, 1970–1973 Firebird Formulas, and 1976 Firebird Limited Editions command high sale prices while the 1970s Trans Am 6.6 "Smokey and Bandit" cars are affordable and appreciating in value. Through the years, the Firebirds and Trans Ams carried unique engines, trim packages, interiors, and other components. And now more than 30 years later, many are in need of restoration. Restoring a car is no small task, and owners of these cars need this hands-on how-to restoration guide. Melvin Benzaquen of Classic Restoration Enterprises has restored dozens of these cars. In this revealing guide, all crucial aspects of restoration are covered, including engine, driveline, body, interior, trim, electrical system, brakes, steering, and suspension. Chapters include VIN decoding, planning, preparation, tools, bodywork, and painting techniques. Step-by-step photos accompanied by in-depth and detailed captions explain how to perform each stage of the restoration procedure. Pontiac Firebird and Trans Am owners are loyal and dedicated to the preservation of these storied high-performance models. And these owners want an accurate and faithful restoration. In a classic car restoration, the magnitude and variety of work can be overwhelming and that’s why a complete restoration guide by an acknowledged expert is so important.

In the mid-1960s, Ford Motor Company took the automotive world by storm with the release of its new pony car, the Ford Mustang. It was the right car for the right time, and it caught General Motors a bit by surprise. One year later, after seeing the Mustang's enormous sales success, General Motors announced the development of its own pony-car platform, code-named "Panther," to enter the market and compete with the tremendously popular Mustang. And what a competition it became. Chevrolet Camaros and Pontiac Firebirds hit the market in the fall of 1966, and the world clamored for more of these new Mustang killers. Over the course of time, these F-Body cars became some of the most popular enthusiast cars of all time. In The Definitive Firebird & Trans Am Guide 1967–1981, Pontiac expert and historian Rocky Rotella examines each production year of Firebird. Production figures, option codes, running changes, model year changes and variances, rarity, collectability, interviews with engineers, and more are thoroughly covered in what is sure to be the ultimate Firebird reference book for years to come. Complementing the detail and year-by-year analysis is a combination of archival photography from the launch of these cars and beautiful color photos of original and restored examples today. Whether you are into the first generation of F-Body Pontiacs, the first Trans Ams in 1969, the early second-generation Super Duty cars, or even the wildly popular Trans Ams from the Smokey and the Bandit era, this book tells the entire story of these immensely popular cars. It is an excellent addition to any pony car, muscle car, or any enthusiast’s library.

»Sexus und Herrschaft« ist Kate Milletts erstes Buch. Es erschien 1969 und machte die Autorin über Nacht berühmt. Übersetzungen in zahlreiche Sprachen folgten. Kate Millett stellt in ihrem Buch die These auf, daß Sexualität ein politisches Instrument ist und der Koitus, die scheinbar intimste Beziehung zwischen den Geschlechtern, dem Patriarchat zur Unterdrückung und Demütigung der Frau dient. Als Beleg für ihre These analysiert sie die Werke von Autoren wie D. H. Lawrence, Henry Miller, Norman Mailer, Jean Genet. Das Buch gehört seit seinem Erscheinen zu den Standardwerken der Frauenbewegung.
