    A few Titles - from my collection ..

    Have mainly New Zealand Stuff, and several Austin Healey books plus a few from the USA on Sports Car Racing in the 1950's / 1980's ..
    Have also recovered on behalf of Seaqnmac Volumes 1 to 22 of " Classic and Sports Car " magazine - his Uncle Gordon was a mechanic and spannerman fro Barry Vuyk and others when competing. Gordon is shifting and had to empty his Garage of them I also got a box of 1973 and 1977 newspaper style magazine called " Motoring News " a UK publication which I am going to go through them when I next visit Auckland
    [ currently in storage in Auckland all seven banana size boxes - a lot of magazine - my Cousin will not be impressed as in his Mums house which he looks after - she is 99 and in a Rest Home - Una Dowding is the Wife of the Late " Eddie Dowding " [ 1919 - 2018 of NSCC fame ].

    Back to the topic - some books /booklets - some have been published elsewhere on TRS but this seems the right place.

    Not for Sale - The Sports Car Talk were given to me, as were some of the others -
    [ just don't tell " Her Indoors " who is Outdoors at the moment with a friend walking.]

    Have the " Waimate 50 " a present from Spgeti, again "Thanks Bruce " - apparently it came with two different coloured covers according to Milan Fistonic who has a different version. Must dig it out and scan the cover again as cabbot find any images of it.
