    Must Own Book for Car Lovers

    All,

    You HAVE to get this book: Nachricht für Netscape 4 User

    It's amazing how much you can learn about the auto industry and design from ads. I believe all the ads were for North America, but it has European, American and Japanese cars. The book is also inexpensive, 10$ US, so at the current exchange rate that's like one Euro.

    Perhaps the most interesting thing is the VW ads; they feel exactly the same thirty years later.

    Spam!?

    Of all the people, Nic, I would never have suspected you.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    He isn't promoting his own work/products. He's suggesting a good book for all of us car lovers. That's ain't no spam, son.

    Thanks for the suggestion Nic, I'll try to get ahold of that book.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me. I'm not involved with the book in any way, I just bought it and was amazed.

    I know your tricks you sly sonuvagun. Expect a temporary ban.



    All retardedness aside, I may pick this up. I'll take your word for it.
