    Living in Melbourne, Australia there are very few specialist motoring bookstores around, and with the poor exchange rate and soaring cost of shipping, some of the more expensive books are either too expensive to order for their shelf or require a committed deposit before ordering (with no guarantee of arriving undamaged).

    Just following on from Marcel's original post, here's a video on the book from Ferrari (more focus on the car then book).

    Even with all the carbon fibre and it being limited in edition personally I can't see $4,000 in it.

    My Breadvan book arrived in perfect condition, perfectly packaged from Andy Massen who now has my order for the '64 GTO book...maybe go direct to him in the future...we both know of his efficiency, service and attention to detail...

    Andy is indeed a great guy and has helped me a lot in the past. Where can we get in touch with him? Website, email?

    My ten new Breadvan books arrived yesterday via DHL. They were part of the contractual agreement in which I sold the rights to Rebel rebel Breadvan.

    The box had some outer damage but inside all ten were fine. I have sold 8 to a bookshop, am keeping one obviously and saved one for Jack the Lad here who had asked (will get postal insured trackable rate for you).

    Will give my impressions of the book in a few days, enjoyed reading some chapters last night, it is worth buying as there is enough that is different.

    Would be interested to know if it's worth buying. Any new insights, or at least some entertaining reading?
