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.
