    Motoring Books - including your bookshelf.

    Instigated via the Quiz thread! It deserves one of its own.

    Best bookshelf? My own best bookshelf is above the window in my office just 2 metres long with some of the better books, including two copies of David Weguelin's ERA History - probably the two most valuable books in my collection. They sit next to Doug Nye's BRM, 1 2 & 3. Autographed copies of various books pushes up their value, though the modern approach to book selling is for the author to have signed more copies than not, so the autographed book has little if any extra value - Jackie Stewart's or Murray Walker's for example, though Martin Brundle didn't visit here, but was active selling in the UK.

    One gem I picked up from a secondhand bookshop was a book signed by Stirling Moss AND Mike Hailwood.

    Graham Hill's autographed "Life At the Limit" may be worth a dollar or two more than an unsigned.

    I still have to read "Hunt" (which I can hardly even lift!), and also looking forward to reading one of Santa's gifts this Christmas, Tony Brooks - "Poetry In Motion".
