Awfully good of you to give us all the heads up, that this is not the revised
edition that some of us would have jumped at. I know that had I seen it, I
would have assumed it was, and grabbed one. --Still might, to have one greasy
dog eared copy, and one for the library ;-)
--Aren't the revisions and corrections posted on the web somewhere? --It seems
to me they were, at one time...

Subject: "New" Restoration Guide
The Anderson and Moment restoration guide, published by Motorbooks, is being
promoted again, this time with a bright shiny red over black BJ8 on the
cover. Just for the information of those who have for several years asked us
the new revised version would be coming out, this isn't it. Instead, this is
the same version that Motorbooks has already reprinted several times. They
simply reprinted the original version with a new cover to match the other
books in this series that were printed since we wrote ours. So, if you have
old version, there is no reason to order this new one.
We've had several discussions with the publishers, asking for the
to produce a true revised second edition, but they don't think there's
profit to justify creating an entirely new book.
Sorry about that -- Roger and I are still interested in producing an updated
and revised version, but it isn't going to happen this year, and probably
won't happen with this publisher.
