He includes the Olympics held in Oregon, the Indy 500m the U. S. And British Open golf championships, the fall of Jim Ryun and all of the heart-stopping action at the Olympics. That was the year eleven Israeli athletes were held as hostages and killed by Arab terrorists. Price is not clipped. Includes sixteen pages of photographs. 272 pages including index. This book is cloth bound; the inside front and back are missing tiny bits of paper that glue over the cloth but not enough to show the edge of the cloth.

2 Turner, Richard H. ; Miles, J. B. ; Cannon, Charles L. (Foreword by) Winning Autocross Solo II Competition: the Art and the Science
0932522017 / 9780932522016; Man against time is perhaps the ultimate form of motor sport. Qualification runs determine who will start in front at Indianapolis, LeMans, or Devil's Bowl. Special qualification engines are commonplace in NASCAR competitions. Gumball tires were designed for one purpose: to go fast for a little while and qualify in front. If such is the case, solo events - or autocrossing - must rank high on man's list of ultimate achievements. We decided it was time for someone to print the secrets of autocrossing, hoping to improve the state of the art even more. 128 pages with glossary; some highlighting in a few chapters. The front corners are lightly worn. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
