Default Flathead books

New member is interested in building a 8ba motor. I first need to study! I am looking for the best place to get JWL's Flathead facts, Ron's Nostalgia and Ford and mercury flathead V-8 Joe Albbin. I have most of the other flathead books except these. Thanks for the help.

Of the three books, we only have the “Nostalgia” book available. It can be ordered through our online store, or call the sales office (during regular office hours).

If you are a V-8 Club member use your roster and you will find Joe Abbin as the first name in the New Mexico section.

My book, "Flathead Facts" has been available from Mac Van Pelt, Amazon, and Mac's Antique Auto Parts. Or, finally, directly from me at johnweld@windstream.net.

Finally got around to ordering your book from Macs/ Ecklers. Your book is not available on Amazon.ca, and will only ship within USA from Amazon.com. Looking forward to receiving it.

JWL, Im going to order your book. Is it more financially beneficial for you if I get the book directly from you and eliminate the middleman? Ordering from Amazon is really easy but if buying direct puts a few more dollars in your pocket then Id be all for that. Or does using a middleman saves you the hassle of shipping? Which method more preferable for the author?

Actually I ship all the Amazon orders. They (Amazon) keep about 30% of the sale. Although more Amazon orders have arrived than all the other sources the $$ in my pocket are not significant. Please EMAIL me at :
johnweld@windstream.net
and discuss direct ordering.
