WTB copies of R-Model Scoop Issues 1-8
« on: December 21, 2020, 03:34:27 AM »
Hi all,

Does any one have copies of the R-Model Scoop they are willing to share?  I was trading emails with Howard and he no longer has any copies that copies can be made from.  He says "... the quality and half-live of the Scoops has faded away..."  The paper they were printed on was not the best.  I have access to issues 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7.  So I would only need copies of 4, 6 and 8.  I enjoy reading about the R-models.  I can imagine most of the info on the cars are now in the registries, but I'd still like to see if I can find some Scoops.

Thanks

Cory

Corrections:

Turns out there is no number 4, but two No.  3 publications.  Also, no number 8 and number 7 was published in the Shelby American Spring 2010.

1st No. 3 - no date on cover, published 1985.

2nd No. 3 - date on cover February 1992.  (Image attached in prior post.)

So, I am still looking for first No. 3 and No. 6.

Any help or leads would be appreciated.

Thanks

Cory

Nope, just some fortunate wannabees still have them thanks to Howard.
I prefer wannabee over "non-owning scum" as Rick put it ironically in his Pardee-article as the receipients of the additional copies:-)



Will PM you 6S1640 for a copy.

Hi JBarela,

Yes, they are no longer available.  There is a website still out there advertising for $20 you can get a full set.  I did send Howard some $$, but then he emailed me right away telling me that the webpage was 20 years old and he was unable to removed because he forgot the password.  I know how that can go.  He is sending me back the $20.
