In order for us used car experts(well we all think we are) to maximise the profit for Victor we will need to know what sells well in Romania so help from Dani and Victor required.
In the UK large euro barges are relatively cheap (big BMW's, S class mercs etc) and I think they are probably available in France to (over to our french friends) In general small cheap to run cars are relatively expensive compared to expensive luxury cards once they get past a certain age, but I would think that well made big cars are often still very reliable and choose well and you could get a good return.

If we go back to Victor's original issue, we're looking at paying not very much for a vehicle that will have resale value in Romania and will have Le Mans street cred, which says to me that a little fettling might be required along the way; none of that says the end user is going to really need to use a peage...
Good point Ian. We avoid the autoroute completely.

It's probably old news and I don't think it deserves it's own thread, so I'll put it here.
I love this: http://issuu.com/lemansracing/docs/le_mans_racing_77_gb
Good reading although I wish it was a hard copy available in English and in case you wonder printing is not a 'hard copy' I want to buy mine in a bookstore.

Can anyone spot the error on the front page?

Do you mean the fact that the full report on the 2012 race might indicate that it is not really current

Not saying it's not current. Just looks like a typo to me.

If that was a typo then as it was on the first line of the front page there might be a new editor or if not then perhaps they need to employ someone who can check a little better.

I'd give them a break, covers should get a lot of attention in publishing, but an awful lot of the time they're left to the last minute and are shoved out the door to meet a print run, only to have the eagle eyed readership get thoroughly up in arms about it all.

I'm not trying to give them a hard time. Nor would that put me off reading it. And to be honest I completely applaud anyone who puts something like this together. It can't be a real money maker.

It's just a shame. Same as the day-long list of errors in every Le Mans annual.

Does this mean you already got a copy of '83 and '85? They keep coming up on eBay once in a while but mostly 300 euros or more and that is not an amount of money I want to spend on them.

No I've worked my way backwards. The more affordable way I think. But I don't want to leave a gap I can't fill so right now it's '87-'12.

The editions of '83 '85 and '86 are pretty rare apparently and fetch silly money indeed. And therefore my collection will probably have 3 gaps in it for ever.

I have 85 and 86. The original price is noted inside the dust jacket of each. 1985: 240FF, 1986 250FF. Both are French language versions in the familiar format.

I also have "The Le Mans 24 hour Race 1978" and "The Le Mans 24 Hour Race 1949-1973", both English language versions, both in the usual format, both edited by Moity & Tesseidre.

Before you ask: no, they're not for sale!

I have the full set - from the start. In all languages. All in pristine unopened condition.

I only have 2003. But it was brand new, unopened - and I paid 99p for it......

Speaking of parting with cash - has anyone got their hands on this yet?

http://www.dukevideo.com/prd3764/Le-Mans-2013-DVD

I had no idea it was out. Obviously it's going to be a bittersweet one to watch. Seems it's in the same great four-hour format as the last couple. I'll wait for the Blu-Ray to come out next month but I think RLM have a discount code 'LeMans13'.
