I feel like a little kid looking into the mailbox waiting for my secret decoder ringsmiling bouncing smiley

I can honestly say I cannot remember the last time I was excited to get something by mail. Hopefully my copy gets to cheeseland this week.

I grabbed my credit card and keyboard the minute I saw Mark's notification. My book, #182, arrived this afternoon. Unfortunately, it was mishandled and appears it was dropped on the bottom, bound corner that put deep creases in both covers. With only 500 copies printed, I wonder if I'm already too late to get a replacement? Book looks like a wonderful tribute to the Corvair, has beautiful photography.

Scott,
My book says one of 2,500, so I think you will be okay. Too bad they mistreated it.

I ordered one even though I avoid posts with the jumping figures like the plague. It only hurt for a moment.

scottymac said his copy was damaged, so I was concerned about mine. But it was nicely packaged in a bubble wrap envelop that was put inside a cardboard envelop, so it was in perfect condition. Mine is #157.

Book #178 finally showed up in my mailbox today.

What a great looking book, packaged nicely with bubble wrap envelope stuffed inside a cardboard envelope. No rips or tears to the packaging, but the lower edge of the book is a bit wavy. I’m sure it will settle out if I leave it flat long enough.

My guess is I’d better allot some chunks of time for reading it, as I was already sucked in by the nice pictures, can’t imagine how deep I’ll get once I start reading.

My book had the cardboard cover and bubble wrap also, but looks like it was dropped on its corner. Here are the creases in the cover and some of the inner pages. Disappointing for a sure fire collectible.
