    The story of a Book:How I co-published 3 books on Ford GTs and didn't get rich

    Back in the '65 through 2000 time, most automakers I visited would invite me into their library and say ":Take what you want." With this new attitude in the new century of "Gee, maybe we can make $1000 on selling pictures" they seem to have lost sight of their original goal which is to sell...

    New book on Shelby but how "new" is it?

    In the ad I saw, they didn't mention that it was written in '67 so I sispect this is The Cobra Story republished? But does it go beyond '67? It's obvious it's a new printing because it mentions the Ford v. Ferrari movie (may be called LeMans '66 in other markets). If anybody has it, tell us if...
