Unlike buying a car, assembling a worthwhile collection of books takes years, if not decades, before you find and purchase all the books that you need, and want. Of course, such a collection never really stops growing, thanks to the world’s publishers that keep issuing new books month after month. Thankfully, most of the new automobile books that are being published today offer little in terms of new content, being little more than rehashes of the same rehashed information, so the growth rate has slowed tremendously.

Swiss Linc OF ALL PLACES, NICK STIEME CAME ACROSS THIS ONE-OF-48 EISENHARDT- AND Hess-built 1959 Lincoln limousine behind a Nissan dealership in Switzerland.

But an extensive restoration would be required.” It’s for sale, though finding a parts car in Switzerland might prove difficult.
