Looks like the release date has been brought forward then. Might be worth holding your horses chaps as the TRDC are looking to organize a batch of books to be signed by the author and hopefully Mr. Mann. It's in the planning stages at the moment but if it comes off is sure to be something special for us TR7/TR8 enthusiasts.

Harris Mann has written the foreword by the way so I know where I'd like him to sign my copy!

Great picture of ACG97 Chris. Looks like it's too famous now to repaint in any other colour!

That sounds like it might be worth the wait for the true diehards.

The car was more or less dumped in the backcourt of a friend.
And he doesn't do TR7's
Think it came from a Belgium dealer, no papers.

Only sensible thing to do was salvage as much as possible and discard the rest, which was quite a lot

had a look on the web on bookbrain.co.uk - useful for book price searching and amazon.co.uk seems to be the cheapest anyway at £16.50 - as the RRP is £25.00 - looks like a good discount here -- must buy one now !!

The price I have inside the dust jacket is £19.95. I doubt it's changed.
