Does any one out there have this book? I think it's pretty neat.

Yep[ me too, but I don't like the Italian-English translation in places.

Phil - this book is now out of print. I tried to get it a couple of months ago from WH Smith and Amazon web sites. Also a specialist car book company - no joy. I do remember seeing a copy at Donington last year. From memory, it looked quite good ?

I saw one on Ebay before Christmas, but for some reason didn't bid on it.
Missed the press pack too. :roll:

I have a spare M100 brochure, but it's not in the best of condition. If anyone wants it from me at Donny?

I bought this book as a cheap special from bookshop probably about 15 years ago, it still has the price label on it: £1.99!

They did a whole series on different production cars. The Lotus Elan was Book Number 17 in the series. Book Number 1 was the Ferrari Testarossa but guess what Book Number 2 was?






























Volvo 850 GLT!!!
Slight come down :D

No, English....... In Dutch it would have been:

Gekocht (zoals gaf binnen geld en ontving in terugkeer iets in terugkeer) één (zoals in meer dan niets en een minder dan een paar) vandaag (zoals binnen vlak na yesterday en niet lang before morgen) eigenlijk :-D

I've just been looking at the one my wife bought me for my birthday - nice little book. Try abebooks.com - I think that's where mine came from.
