Forthcoming GTV and Spider book
I wanted to introduce my new project to you all.
I'm a long-time Italian car fan, and I used to own a GTV 3.0 for a while. I've been on the forum on and off since then and always thought it was the best resource for owners and would-be owners.
I've always particularly admired the 916 cars, and I felt their history needed to be documented. Happily, an eminent publishing house agrees!
My book about the GTV and Spider has been accepted for publication, and all being well it should be on the shelves in around a year (yes it really does take that long to get everything done!)
I'm really excited about the project, and I am keen that the book do justice to these great cars. Which brings me to the point of this posting...
I have already approached a few forum members to request permission to use their photographs, as I am keen to use as many original images as possible.
I'd love to have a few more images to choose from - I have a lot of Phase 2 images, but less Phase 1 and Phase 3 cars. I need a nice underbonnet Ph 3 JTS picture, and a Blue style interior picture in particular, and I would love a good picture of the Spider cabin behind the seats.
If you are interested in contributing, could you let me know what you have, and ideally show me some of the pictures. To be able to use your pictures in the book, you will need to be able to supply the ones I choose in hi-res (2000 pixels wide or better), and they MUST be taken by you. There is no payment I'm afraid for the pictures, but all photographers will get a credit in the book.
So if you want to see your pride and joy in the the book, please let me know what you have!
I hope this doesn't contravene any forum rules!
