:) "The best of times," Dick.

As many cars and trucks as they were building that year, I'm surprised they had the spare manpower to publish such a document! :cool: BP

Is that the booklet where you and your cousin studied all the photos, and staked out places to hide within the plant when you and George got 'lost' on those tours in later years??!?

Did they publish the same booklet with different pictures for different years?

I snagged it from eBay - always a treat to get more interesting literature from the "Wheel"

Indeed they did. Here are some of the others showing years, pages etc. You may wish to see my 3 page Almanac column in TW (July 1998) for a more comprehensive article (page 1 below).

Speaking of 1950 literature-- anyone have an available copy of the "Inside Facts" publication from that year? I just missed getting one at York. There are a couple on eBay, but they're much, much more expensive than the York one, which was, the dealer thought, $125.

Should have bought the one at York! I have a few extra but the '50, if in good to excl condition, would sell for more than $150.

It wasn't a matter of deciding to think about it and missing out as a result. I saw other years and asked about '50 and the dealer said he'd just sold the only one he had, and to get a sense of pricing I inquired how much it had sold for. I might be willing to pay more than $150, though I don't know how much more.

Yes, that's it. Too bad, a very rough specimen. Just depends on what you are looking for.

And it's already sold, darn it. I admit the degree of fading to the cover of that one was pretty bad, though I'd probably have bought it just for the content and replaced it with a nicer one at the right moment.

The seller of another one just listed at $200 accepted my $125 offer (with one page slightly loose, I'm told, so not perfect). So, all good.
