This brochure is one of many I collected in my youth. I spent many hours riding my bike around town and pestering my parents to take me to car dealers when we went on trips. Some dealers were understanding and told me to take what I wanted while others gaurded theirs more fiercely. The Chevrolet brochures were easy and, yes, I still have some on such things as Vegas and Monzas but the prize possessions many times required greater stealth. As a result I often made off with the bigger, glossier brochures probably meant only for display but how was I to know? Some meant a drive to the next town and others involved mailing the importers, disguised as an older male as only mail can do. Many times replies would come back with nice brochures and an offer of a test drive. If only they had known I didn't even have a license! The best had to be Rolls Royce who at one time ran an ad with an 800 number for a free brochure. I called about once a month and still have several pristine copies and the envelopes they came in. Some brochures I can't bear to part with yet. There's still something too special about the Maserati Bora and Merek brochure and, of course, the Ferrari ones. Nothing ignites the heart like a Ferrari and these little papers did eventually lead to my own. Who would have thought that a young boy's dream could go so far!

so dream a little and bid free from worry!

I remember driving one of these cars about 7 years after they came out. It was like the thing was on rails! This was always one of my favorite brochures because of the way they showed putting the roof and the luggage up front and in the back. I don't think they had one of anyone changing spark plugs... I guess that wouldn't exactly sell it.

This one is LARGE! It has a little wear on the edges as it always kind of hung out of my box. I do remember when I took it from Gleaves VW Porsche, here in town. It was clearly not one for people to take but being a kid and it being a brochure how was I to tell? It has many pages and an insert on power and performance figures. This is a really cool brochure and it must be very hard to come by.

These brochures have all remained in my attic, filed in order, with care, protected from the elements and will be shipped in a protective manner.
