Not aware of any information

How I found out about this 45 page book, a friend of mine purchased it 10 + years ago. He shared it with me, I tried to buy it from him but was not for sale.

From that point I searched at book stores,  could not order it as it was out of print.  Went to ebay and in numerous occasions I found it to be out bid over $200 each time.

^^^^  Thanks much!  Now you can get that copy you were in search of for a fair amount less!

This paper back 45 page book comes with a few memos from Hertz to S. A. and visa versa. Has many photos of the people, the build and the S.A. shop.

What I found interesting are the various concept drawings of the proposed 2006 2007 GTH. Much of the conceptual designs where incorporated into the cars we have today.  Some of the touches would have been nice to have, oh well that's life.

I found out about this book when a friend purchased one in 2010 - 2012 I attempted to purchase from him, but unfortunately it was not for sale just like his 2006 GTH.

Through the years I attempted to purchase via book store and used book stores.  But no dice as it was out of print.

On ebay I followed two put once over $225 I bowed out.

Come 2024 and here is the reprint
