The photos in this edition are black and white. Skylarks, GSXs, Grand Nationals, Rivieras, Gran Sports; the list of formidable performance Buicks is impressive. From the torque monsters of the 1960s to the high-flying Turbo models of the '80s, Buicks have a unique place in performance history. During the 1960s, when word of the mountains of torque supplied by the big-inch Buicks hit the street, nobody wanted to mess with them. Later, big-inch Buicks and the Hemi Chryslers went at it hammer and tongs in stock drag shootouts and in the pages of the popular musclecar magazines of the day. The wars between the Turbo Buicks and Mustang GTs in the 1980s were also legendary, as both cars responded so well to modifications. "How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines" is the first performance engine book ever published on the Buick family of engines. This book covers everything from the Nailheads of the '50s and early '60s, to the later evolutions of the Buick V-8 through the '60s and '70s, through to the turbo V-6 models of the '70s and '80s. Veteran magazine writer and Buick owner Jefferson Bryant supplies the most up-to-date information on heads, blocks, cams, rotating assemblies, interchangeability, and oiling-system improvements and modifications, along with details on the best performance options available, avenues for aftermarket support, and so much more. Finally, the Buick camp gets the information they have been waiting for, and it's all right here in "How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines."

Das ultimative Kochbuch zum Erfolgsprogramm! Ernährungscoach Kimberly Snyder berät Stars wie Drew Barrymore, Dita von Teese oder Olivia Wilde in Ernährungsfragen. Kimberlys Grundansatz: bewusst ernähren, am besten gluten- und lactosefrei. Um konkrete Beauty-Resultate zu sehen, muss die Ernährung allerdings langfristig umgestellt werden. Ihr Fokus liegt auf Bio-Obst und -Gemüse. Als echte Schönmacher empfiehlt sie zum Beispiel Ananas: Die regt die Produktion von Kollagen im Körper an. Gegen Akne-Attacken helfen Zwiebeln, weil sie die Leber beim Entgiften unterstützen. Und Bananen beugen durch ihren Kalium- und Biotin-Gehalt Augenringen vor. Kultstatus hat in den USA ihr „Glowing Green Smoothie“ aus Salat, Spinat und Sellerie, für einen strahlenden Teint. Hier kommt das Kochbuch zum Erfolgsprogramm: Kimberly Snyder führt die Top-50-Detox-Foods auf, erklärt ihre speziellen Wirkweisen und liefert tolle Rezeptideen für strahlende Schönheit.
