Back issues or Rumcar News Wanted please.
« on: February 25, 2007, 09:45:42 PM »
Hi

Has anyone got any of the Rumcar news mags surplus to requirements.

I would like ones that are now out of stock from Jean.

Please let me know what you have.

I am happy to pay £1.00 each for ones that are not that old and a bit more for realy early ones that are probably harder to get.  Will obviously pay the postage.

Let me know what you have and how much dosh you need.

Can pay by Paypal transfer, cleared cheque etc.

Thanks

John

Hi Bob

Yes I will be there

Look forward to meeting up with you and some of the club members.

Would be glad to purchase any Mags. I also considered purchasing the Classic car folders you have on Ebay, I had all of these and sold them many years ago, with the microcar content marked it would be a much more interesting lot to me than just sifting through everything again.

See you soon.

All the best

John

The trouble with the very first RUMCAR NEWS they were done on a Gestetner then photocopied, so the reproduction was rubbish to start with.  Whilst I do have a full set when they are photocopied they are not always readable.  Unless there is some new technology for reproducing bad photocopies I know nothing about.  Jean

A few years back Jean loaned me all the back issues, as I had it in mind to put the articles together in book form. I should still have all the text somewhere, though I wasn't able to scan many images due to the limited nature of storage discs at that time. When I get a moment I may well return to this project - especially if people want it, Jean is happy for it to go ahead, and the contributors are happy for their articles to be re-used (most of them were written by Tony M anyway  :) )

The bad photocopies were part of the charm! I first came across RCN in those volumes that were reprinted by Transport Source Books - bad photocopies of bad photocopies! I still treasure those volumes.

Hi Darrg

Great, if it's possible, I would be happy to buy the back issues, if and when they became available.
