While some of you are having fun in Chicago-land this weekend, we are arranging our library shelves in our new house.  These little books (5.5 x 8 in) won't fit and are going to Goodwill. They reminded me of all our discussions here about old MGs and the fact that even older cars are pretty scarce in 1/43...

 These have great color illustrations and are from 1969!  If anyone wants them, let me know...  And here is that famous Rio from Italy many years ago (1899 Jamais Contente):

  I know what you mean about the books, and I've threatened to do the same.  They're taking over my display area!  And I admire your old racer, too.
