I have purchased what I thought was a 57 GMC sales
brochure (see details in the e-mail to "John" below) that
was actually a 58 brochure. Before I send it back, I
thought that I would offer it to other list members for
the same $15 I paid for it. It is in really good shape,
just that the guy who put it up for auction did not
correctly describe it. If I don't hear from anyone by
Thursday I'll return it. If you are interested let me
know and I'll send you the URL to look at it.
