No i didn't bump into Richard Wilson while out.

Its the absurd cost some people think they can get for Tom Sheppards Vehicle Dependant expeditions guide

Currently bidding starts at 124.99 on ebay for the origional hard cover version

You can still buy it for £36 quid for the 2.2 edition direct from desert winds.

Wonder how much my signed version is worth then Twisted Evil

I actually have the field manual version (soft cover) too (ver 2 or 2.1) that I keep in the truck when travelling and its been very usefull

Blimey! I produced a book after competing in the Dakar a few years ago (the late 80's actually) so using TS's book as a guideline I reckon mine is probably worth about £3.80 by now. I know my place. Sad

Strewth, I'd forgotten about that. Produced those directories in 1997 and 1998 as far as I can recall. Ranked 5,854,545 in Amazon's top selling titles, didn't quite make the Top 100 then? mad

As for Tom McWho? - last time I saw that was on the side of a Defender 110 competing in the Paris-Dakar in about 1993. Where did you see it?
