Default Looking for a copy of "The Definitive Firebird & Trans Am Guide 70-1/2 - 81"

Anyone have one for sale or knows where I can get one without getting a second mortgage? It was authored by Rocky Rotella.

Thanks

Check any major book store in your area. I got my copy at a
Barns & Noble.

Within the last year. That price is insane!!!!! I bet if you contacted Rocky he probably has some copies he could sell.

Unfortunately, when the initial printing sold out Caretch elected to not reprint the book. I wish I had copies available, because I receive weekly requests. The best solution may be to contact Cartech via its website at www.cartechbooks.com to see if they have any remaining stock or might consider reprinting.

Hell, maybe Ames would be willing to consider purchasing a run and selling it exclusively?

Rocky, I reached out to Cartech books about old stock or if they plan on re-publishing the book. I'll post when I hear back from them.

Just heard back from Nancy with CarTech and this was her response:

"No, we don't have any left in-stock. That book went out of print last Fall and it is no longer available."



Thanks,

Nancy

Oh well, the search continues.........

Thanks for asking. Maybe with more requests they'll reconsider that decision.
