Even with a quick trip to the ER and a few days hobbling around on crutches, 2013 is starting out better that average.
Our first shipments of the 2010/2011 and 2012 LeMans DVDs and 2012 Formula 1 DVDs have arrived. All advance orders should be filled by this weekend. Our first shipment of Automobile Year #60 and a restock of the 2012 LeMans Annual are 'in the air' and I'm told the US release of Autocourse 2012/13 is on schedule for next week.
We're also eagerly awaiting sample copies of a few new books you may like. Watch this space.
The boys at Replicarz have released photos of the 'final sample' of their eagerly awaited 1/18 scale replica of Ray Harroun's 1911 Indianapolis 500 winning Marmon Wasp.
A leather hood strap has been added and, for the first time, we see a nicely detailed engine sitting underneath that hood.
Firestone markings will be added to the tires then, (we hope) the OK will be given to start production. I know we always encourage advance orders on limited edition models, but in this case, every serious Indianapolis 500 collector is going to want at least one of these beauties and once they land (March?), they're going to disappear quickly. Still priced at $229.99. Reserve HERE. - Paul
