    Hi . . . some of you may know that I have been working on a book that was commissioned by CarTech, Inc. Selling the American Muscle Car: Marketing Detroit Iron in the 60s and 70s has been finished for a few months but the actual book will be ready for purchase later this month.

    I have a website where I'm taking pre-orders for a signed copy:

    This is my first time doing a website (not to mention a book!) so if you have any issues, please PM me here - thanks!

    True, but if the book is bought from my website, it helps fund my trip to MCACN. :pray:

    Won't begrudge anyone for waiting till the show, though.

    Hey, folks, with the holiday season upon us, you may need a gift for a loved one. How about a signed copy of my book?

    I'm selling the book for retail but charging extra for signed copies. For you Pure Stock participants, I'll sign it for free - that's about 20% in savings!

    Just visit and purchase the unsigned copy plus add a note this is a Pure Stock discount and that you'd like it signed.

    I send it packaged (ready for gifting) via Media Mail, so allow some time for it to reach its destination, although I can send it Priority for $13.45 if needed.

    :grin: :TU: 'Just got done spending an hour looking over my copy, Diego. This is indeed a wonderful book.

    If the balance of it is as accurate as is the Studebaker section, and I'll bet it is, you have a winner.

    I'll be ordering two copies for Christmas presents later today.

    Thanks so much for the time and effort expended on this; it's a great tome. :cool: BP

    WOW.......:bglasses: you've been busy lately, I think I'll buy one,maybe two..(one for a friend)...what's the story with the coupon code on your website.....:idea2:

    I don't know anything about a coupon code, but an affiliate has promoted a book on its site so perhaps it is for its customers. On my end, I've discounted the signed book to be the same price as the unsigned book for Pure Stock fans like yourself.

    Curious...will this book be distributed to bookstores or is it only an online purchase?

    It's currently available at the usual outlets both in-store and online but, for a signed copy, you can only buy from me.

    This browser at work won't accept the Paypal but i will do it at home tonight. Looks well worth even the nasty $55 shipping cost to Australia!

    I may be able to help you save some money if you buy it through eBay via their Global Shipping Program. I'd have to list an auction specifically for you, though.

    Thanks. But I got a better idea. I will get it shipped to my buddy in Oakland, Ca. .. will be seeing him in New Zealand in 8 weeks. Cheers.
