A major reference work for years to come

Everyone I have showed it to is champing at the bit to get a copy. It will certainly be the major reference work for years to come.

Can't put it down

I received my copy of the newest edition last week and cant put it down. It is an incredible achievement and certainly the new bible for those of us who have or expect to undertake a XK restoration. Congratulations and thank you. I now know what Ill be giving for Christmas presents to all my XK friends this year. My only complaint is that it arrived within a week of the successful completion of my year long XK150 FHC restoration. She is now prepped and ready for judging at The Quail in Monterery next month.

Wonderful book

Just to advise you that the two books I ordered arrived this afternoon in excellent condition. My sincere thanks to Philip Porter for signing each copy, and I am sure the gentleman who is restoring my XK150S will be as thrilled as I am to have this wonderful edition in his library. My congratulations to Philip on a unique publication!
