My friend, James Rice, is trying to downsize his collection of auto and aero literature and would like to offer it to true aficionados first.  Here's the details:
I have begun the process of reducing my inventory of auto and aero books, magazines and files which began in 1958 when I was a freshman in high school.   This process has begun because we will eventually need to move to smaller quarters.  I cannot not take all of this material with me…short term or long term.  I do not want to stick our children or grandchildren with the task.   
I can send you the auto lists via e-mail.  There are several multi-page spread sheets.  The list includes marque and race series histories, and a stack of Indianapolis 500 and CART material.  I have Indy 500 programs and year books from 1946 up thru the split in what - 1996?  There are also some NASCAR and BY400 programs and magazines about NASCAR and F1 at Indy.    

The aero material covers air-racing, private, general and military aviation and the space program.  If you have done the math, you know I am old enough to remember hearing and seeing the first satellite the USSR sent over head.   If you would like a copy of these hand written pages, please send my your address. 

There are a total of seven book cases and five file cabinets which eventually must be dealt with.  The list covers about half of what I have. 

Thanks for your time.

Historically Yours,

I want to let you know that Dead Pedal Press has moved.  We are now located on beautiful Camano Island, about 70 miles North of Seattle.

I have about 10 copies of my USRRC book that are in brand new, perfect condition, but the bumper box, used to protect them did it's job and took the beating. I will sell these for $80, which includes media mail shipping, to the first ten folks who send me an email (to requesting a copy.
