Well, there is - just click on the small picture!

Let me know your address, so I can send you the book "Internet for Dummies"

I agree with you on that coffee table book idea, though. Clive?

Default Coffee Table Book

"- wouldn't they make a great coffee table book!"...right, done! If Clive wants to help that's a big help but I have the resources to achieve this . That said, Clive...how are things going?

Default Ford Windsor Photo

The photo seems to be taken from the crane in the Coal Pile at the back of the Windsor Plant, on the banks of the Detroit River. The trucks apear to be "Alpha Packs" amongst others...or will be when dismantled for crating.

OK Smart alec!
I found that some would and some wouldn't enlarge - it was very frustrating

On the other hand, the images are beautiful indeed and if we could pull it together (adding factory photos from both Canada and Australia) we could have quite a volume.
THEN we'd have to convince everyone to buy one which as we know is difficult in the extreme!

Default Shhhhh!

We can't say too much at the moment but this has already been given attention Keith. The big problemo is that we have to prove that people will indeed buy a book and then how many need to be printed.
