1. The Complete Collection of 311 Photos by Alvin. Available on CD, the collection is searchable by year, stock or modified, interior, colour, top, wheels, etc. The hardbound/coffee table version contains a preface by the author detailing how he organises his photos so that cars with a singular feature may be accessed at a moment’s notice.
2. The Complete Collection of Nissan Technical Drawings by Nissanman. This CD is also searchable by model, year, and every arcane or esoteric feature ever included in a Nissan illustration. The hardbound version also contains Nissanman’s preface with tips on how best to organise one’s files for easy access (useful for all of us who have files of any sort).
3. The newest DVD of Ted’s guided walkabout of a near 100 point 1967.5 SR. Ted meticulously and skillfully points out what to look for in a perfectly preserved or restored example. This newest (just released) version contains a bonus feature that allows you and your friends to test your judging skills by selecting a randomised (computer-generated) car for points after watching Ted’s presentation. You can gather around your Smart TV while your computer produces a car for judging. You have previously selected the maximum amount of time for judging and skill level (e.g., Novice for gas cap orientation and shackle mounting, or Master for cam cover vacuum tube clip location, if so equipped). Closest to correct total points wins the round! A second round of competition involves estimating the auction value of the car just judged (requires subscription to current market trends available from the publisher at additional cost).

Best wishes to all, and thanks to everyone who contributes info and/or money to this website!

The shipping on Alvin's collection would be cost prohibitive, the others just expensive!

1969 2000 solex mine since 1972, under resurrection. (Finally resurrected as of spring 2019!) 1969 Porsche 911s -worth more, but not as valuable! (Soon to be resurrected)

What's the cost? Are these put out by you or by each mentioned owners?

Due to heavy demand there are only a few of my ROADSTER EVALUATION DVD's left.
Like the other vendors, I am offering special Christmas pricing. Only 39.99.(regularly priced at $29.99)
The DVD does include my latest update on evaluating the 63-64 1500 roadster. I had to add this quickly as
we have learned from a member that they are "sad sad little cars" and "just a terrible car over all" so their values are
plummeting as fast as they are rusting. I certainly can not keep mine after all that I have learned
and I will be lucky to get a few $100 for it.
(For the humor challenged her are the requisite smilies :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: )

Walmart has a deal on a double thick but smaller 12 volt blanket. I got one and it works but do not fold or sit on it otherwise the wires break. It is black/white.
Order online and Ship to Store....$14
Good for emergencies, the dog, California wimps :D
