One book even shows a guy repairing a Ferrari 250 GTO - one of my favorite cars!!
I think I was looking at those. Ron Covell maybe? Yep. On the want list - with a whole bunch of other things.

The more tools I amass, the more I realize I don't have. Books are definately tools. Most things I have learned in the garage have been from reading books and frequenting sites just like this one. ...and by screwing up and NOT doing it that way again.
