All orders in the post..........

Book numbers 999 and 1000 were sold at our fundraiser with Martin Whitmarsh at the BRDC
on October 29th
I dragged them around the Festival of Speed and The Revival getting them signed by the great and good of Motorsport

No 1000 made £1000
No 999 made £500

Money went to Maddie, a 15 year old girl in my son's class at school
She needs constant bone marrow transplants in the US.

I've just had to order a copy, looks absolutely fascinating and all for a good cause too. Now if only my car history was as exotic!

I see your order

Number 1000 was auctioned as a special

I am running around the 660/1000 mark at the moment

Hello Michael. I've just ordered two copies, one for me, and one for my Brother for Christmas. He'll be especially interested in reading about the ISO Grifo I think, as he has a friend who owns one and he's often telling me about how much he loves it.

I wonder if you'd be so kind as to sign the copies for us too please, if it's not too much trouble?

Thank you so much!

Just ordered. What a really nice act the fundraising is.

I've ordered as AB M, I'd appreciate a signed copy of the book if that's possible please?

Mr H may I respectfully suggest another way of raising funds for the good cause?

Write another book!

Bring us up to date with your car adventures (please...)

Ordered one.
People keep telling me to write a book about my (very many) cars and bikes + work / customer experiences. Maybe this might be the catalyst.
Looking forward to a good read. Thanks.

2 just ordered. I'd love to have 666 if it's still available.

Great project and pleased to be able to support it and you in a very small way.
