Postage would work out cheaper if they rolled them up and placed them in a cardboard tube. Better protection as well when the you think of the postal service these days.

Even something like UK Mail courier service would be cheaper.

But first you have to make contact with Gary. He is still not returning calls or responding to e,mails :?

Brian. I left my name and number three times, but did not say what my call was regarding. So what if my call was about buying a new car! :?

If Gary is working the way Matt worked, he will be out of the office a lot of the time.
He is not quite a one man band, but his time is fully occupied.
Next time you ring ask for Jonathan Noy.

Frustrating I know, I am still waiting for the Certificate from Alpina for the parade lap at Silverstone.
4 months and counting.
Gary always quickly returns my calls, but then I have just secured a sale for him
:D

Well I have finally had a reply from Gary. But the plot thickens.

He has informed me that although I have been allocated a signed copy of the book, he is unable to take payment until he has received the books and checked they have been signed.

The wait continues :?

Just had a phone call from Sytner to say the signed books are now in. I already have one that I got from Amazon during the Black Friday deal.

Anyway, I thought it would be nice to have one with a signature. I can always sell the other one :wink:

I wonder how many books were actually signed!
