📚 Frank at the Sports Card & Collectibles Show in Woodstock contributed this #HolySaturday gift to The Crittenden Automotive Library. This is actually not the first Zondervan book in the collection! #HappyEaster
I’m usually the one taking the pictures or sharing photos from others, but if you’ve ever wondered what I look like, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ here I am. At the Wisconsin Historical Museum, in front of a 1948 Nash Ambassador 600.
I’ve been out & about the past few weekends and here are books #481-485 from the trips. The Fiat 500 book is the first real non-English book in the collection (not counting some Rules of the Road booklets from the Illinois SoS). The photos in Wine Country Trucks of Napa & Sonoma Counties are just gorgeous, and there are some amazing vintage pickups still in use there.
Another fun day browsing a different Half Price Books than last week and I brought home books #471-473 & videos #63-65. The Wayward Bus is about a bus trip on California’s backroads, by John Steinbeck, author of The Grapes of Wrath & Of Mice and Men. Originally published 1947, my copy is from 1967.
It took a lot longer than expected & it's not 100% complete, but The Crittenden Automotive Library has a new office and we're back to posting content online. Help support us by leaving a "tip" for the service! 😀 PayPal: admin@CarsAndRacingStuff.com Cash App: coming soon!
📚 Finding mementos of the journeys book take are fun bonuses. A 1991 printing of the road trip book Blue Highways (originally published 1982) took a flight from Knoxville to DC in 1999 and these were left as bookmarks. Last week I found it in a Goodwill in Huntley, Illinois.
Books #468 & #469 in the collection from 1968 & 1965 respectively. Yes, that is the infamous Unsafe at Any Speed by Ralph Nader. Likely the most hated book in automobile history, especially if you love Corvairs, but when else has a book been the big story here? Love it or hate it, its importance meant that it was absolutely necessary for us to have a copy and today I found one.
