I don't know but according to the back cover of the paperback, it has a new chapter in it. Don't know which one?

Likewise with the DVD/videos thread, as there is little "traffic" coming in here (although I'd really like to encourage it), I'm unsticking the thread.

Update for Time and Two Seats, from the writer himself:
Quote:
The current TATS goes up through 1998.

I'm now working on a photo book that apart from captions will have very little text and no tables. It will cover the 1953-1992 period, possibly in separate volumes.

I have also kept text, tables, and photos up to date from 1999-2003. Unsure yet how these will be published--lots of internal debate. I may only publish the current year ('03 or '04) as a yearbook and not do the previous years until possibly a major TATS update in about 5 years time.

As to updates for the tables, that will be published as a mini-volume
sometime during 2005, tables only for a nominal price.

What will not and never be repeated from the original TATS are the
narratives.
Oh, great, as if it weren't enough that I still have to get TATS, now he's going to do a photo companion? How will my bank account ever survive?

I know the feeling - I'm the proud owner of a "Time and Two Seats" and wouldn't part with it for anything. The news that there's an illustrated companion volume and a probable supplementary edition on their way has me looking at what I can sell to get my hands on them.

Hmm... now to find a nice tame bank to rob.

It's still available new for 149.50 at all good motor bookshops. Of course, I'd say the name of the bookshop I'd advise getting it from, but I'm biased. I work there!

Personally, I'll be going straight to the source - $195 US + S&H. I'd only consider going through a book store if it were of comparable price (ie markup to cover the S&H, not more than 5% premium on top of that) but I suspect I'd be able to get my favourite Panoz 2003 driver to do just that for me...

I have just finished Burt BS Levy's Potside Companion, and will order his other books.

I enjoyed Sam Posey's Mudge Pond Express years ago.

Levy's other three books are fiction and relate Sports Car Racing's early days in the US (1950s). In true storyteller fashion, Levy inserts his characters into actual events and associates them with real people (drivers) of the period. Some names have been changed to avoid legal action, but the personalities DID exist. The jacket of the first book also details Levy's personal trials and tribulations in getting the book published.

1."The Last Open Road", ISBN 0-9642107-0-3: We are introduced to "Buddy" Palumbo, a teen aged mechanic (MGs & Jaguars, highly sought after in the US in 1952) who may or may not be Levy's alter ego. Buddy has a job at a gas station which becomes a mecca for imported cars due to his skills. Various characters and their cars are introduced. "Buddy" goes to various venues as a mechanic and in general describes Sports Car racing as it was in those days.

2."Monezuma'a Ferrari", ISBN 0-94642107-1-1: "Buddy" accompanies one of the charcters to the "Carerra Panamerica" (Mexican Road Race) and in general grows up a little bit. More scenes of famous races and people.

3."The Fabulous Trashwagon", ISBN 0-9642107-5-4: "Buddy" finally gets to build his own car and discovers "aerodynamic lift".

Burt Levy can at time be verbose and has more than once used every concievable adjective to describe things but all in all the books are fun to read. Please read them in the order in which they are listed.

My copies have been autographed by Bert as I have ment him many times at various "Historic" races events in the US.

The ISBN callouts will aid your local library or bookshop in ordering the books.

I knew they were fiction, but with basis in his experiences. I will purchase from him directly, as I think it puts more money in his pockets. Seems a good enough cause to me :-).

BTW, your forum name is the nickname of my daughter, and she didn't earn it from being a Denny Hulme fan!

Just finished reading "THRUST" by Richard Noble, the story of his battle to firstly break the land speed record and then break the sound barrier in a car.
An interesting read with some good photographs, with my favourite being the one of THRUSTSSC with shock waves coming from the nose area of the car - excellent pic.

My sister-i-l Sue runs a second hand motor racing book shop just outside Hay on Wye, and I agree there is nothing like browsing to make you wish you had a lot more money!

The range is extensive, and well worth a look for any serious collector.

As we can't advertise on here, all I can say is that if anyone is interested I can forward e:addresses, (or phone for UK residents). She has just moved premises, so are not advertising at present, but callers by appointment can be accomadated once the stock is unpacked.

What about "Step on it" By Stoker Ace. I remember Doug Nye recommending it, but I have never seen it...
