Literature, Brad Artigue

I just mailed you almost 28 lbs of delightful scraps. There is enough there for you to branch off into a couple more models, and info galore. What you don't need auction it off to further the cause. There's an easy 125 lbs still to ship. I'm saving the binders for the Greyhound Freight shipment.

Chow Mein,

Dang it - I meant to call you and I got busy. I'll try and call this weekend. Thanks so much for doing this, Mike, preserving the history. Jen will be happy to see me bring home another bookshelf to store it all! And I guess I need another scanner - my current one is so full of debris from scanning stuff I'm not sure it can be cleaned!

There are numerous 2 x 3' wiring diagrams, meant for the wall, but very readable! :) Technical training manuals for trannys, diffs, and motors. Most of the binders are line drawing parts manuals. There's a 600 D manual, a 1500 Cabrio manual, a couple of thin Lancia books. The really weathered '50's and 60's owners manuals are very delicate (think Dead Sea Scrolls) but all fairly complete. There are many duplicates, dealer price lists (useless), and an interior fabric board. Oh, and a very clean Turbo Service manual.

I think your Summer is booked. ;)

Wow. Those wiring diagrams do well in a big scanner (which I have access to).

Mudge - Check with your Post Office for the "Media Rate". It's for shipping books and the like, not fast but it used to be incredibly cheap.

I did ship Media Mail, thanks. The last batch could ship via Greyhound. They are good for heavy items (5 spd tranny), and odd shaped cargo (124 Spider hood), for a reasonable rate. They won't deliver to your address and their terminals are along well traveled hwys. Ya gotta go get it.

Brad, if you need any help on the large format scanning, I think I have a machine I have access to.

Greyhound is a weird beast. I've shipped a number of large & strangely shapped/packaged parts and it's always been surprisingly quick & inexpensive. Where it seems to fail is when the package would have to change buses. I ran into this selling some 124 Coupe parts to a guy in ID. In the end, I ended up meeting an 18-wheeler driver from his company when he was passing through Knoxville & he gave the pieces (a hood & bumpers, if I recall) a lift...even better!

Yes, Greyhound can get weird now and then. But you have to ask at the drop off point if there are any transfers in the loop. I'd prefer other more substantial carriers in a real important mailing, but for this load....not too concerned. :)
