I want to publish a car book!

Hey everybody. I'm new to the forum and I am trying to publish a book about how people got their dream cars. If you have an interesting story, please pm me a short summary of it. I will pm you back if I need you to elaborate or want pictures. Keep in mind that the publishing of this book is a very long way off, but I gotta start somewhere. Keep in mind that you won't get any money if your car is featured, and there is no guarantee that I will use your story. Also, it doesn't have to be a Ferrari. The whole point of doing this is to get a variety of cars included in the book and hear different people's stories. Thank you and God bless you all!

If you'll pay me exorbitant amounts of money, I'll write it for you and/or take sick pictures.

I need an Aventador!

I bought mine from a private individual. I paid cash and had it delivered to my house. PM me if you want to use it.

I got good grades in High School and College, went to work for a good firm, saved my money, and bought, one, then two, then 3 ................ , this could be a short story though!

I would suggest you read the book "Driven".

Excerpts of the excerpts in the Amazon ad:
"When he was sixteen years old, Larry Miller came home one summer night to find all his possessions sitting in three bags on the porch of his darkened house. The door was locked."

and a sampling of the dreams he eventually owned is here.

What a wonderful idea! I'd open up to a stranger any time about my life. Sending pictures? - Yes I'd do that to!

Salve,
Capo

The bad news: Time flies
The good news: I'm the pilot

You cannot make life longer but you can make it wider and higher.

One day I decided it was time for me to buy a 20s/30s hotrod.....something running but needing some TLC. I didn't want a big project that was for sure. I looked and looked but just couldn't find anything I like locally and this was about 12/13 years ago before the internet was what i now is so I bought a copy of Hemmings to look through.......which brought me to "shit, I could have a ferrari" for what I was planning to spent. About 2 weeks late my new to me 308 QV was on a truck. 6 weeks later it set itself on fire and became the project I said I didn't want....now I know about getting a proper PPI
