Hello everyone
I wonder who can help with this one?
Back in the days I translated a book about Mercedes-Benz and their amazing, and that truly is the word, 1950s racing car the W196. I'm not necessarily Benz's biggest fan, not being a rap artist or footballer, and anyway Italian's more my style, but I digress.
I still have the German version of the book by Michael Riedner, but I never found the English version and my agent never received hers from the publisher either.
It's become a bit of a bughunt in the last few months eBay etc etc.
My question is - does anyone out there own an English copy with a dustjacket which they could scan to bmp or jpg for me so I could enhance my profile page? I would be forever in your debt
Thanks so much in advance

Afraid I don't own this book, but it seems to be readily available on Amazon:

Hope this helps!

Thanks everyone Sep 29, 2005

and Sven's link was spot on. They're asking 95 bucks for a copy so maybe Santa will be kind, but I got my cover shot!

...and when I found out Sven's a DJ too, well I just had to add a link...
