Morris Minor Owner's Club, July 2007 - UK Want to know more about Saloon, Traveller and Convertible models produced from 1952 onwards? Look no further than the latest title from Veloce Publishing in their Essential Buyer's Guide series. The 64 page A5 sized book written by Ray Newell offers sensible, easy to read advice on the dos and don'ts of buying and maintaining a Minor. Color photographs are extensively used throughout the book to provide a step by step guide for prospective purchasers on what to look for and where to find it. Invaluable advice is offered on a wide range of topics ranging from parts availability and cost relative values of different models, the viability of restoring to buying at auction. There is even a points scoring system aimed at providing potential purchasers with a no nonsense guide to assessing the vehicle of their dreams. The book is an informative read and its compact size means that it can easily be stored in the glove box for future reference, At $19.95 there is little on the market that can compete with it. Enjoy! Australian Classic Car, September 2007, Australian magazine Veloce has now published 13 of these handy pocket size books. Each serves as a useful guide for enthusiasts and assumes that readers will already know a little about older cars. The publications follow a pattern, starting off with the question, "Is this car right for you?" - It's a valid question, since many first-time owners buy with their hearts and not their heads, and live to regret it. Included are chapters on costs, what it's like living with a Morrie - or V12 E-type. Items to watch out for are helpfully divided into a 15-minute evaluation and a more serious investigation examining mechanicals, body, trim and so forth in close detail. The author then compares the various advantages of auctions against private sales before discussing the all important paperwork - after all, you'll want to make sure that the seller actually owns what you are buying. Internet links and tips on where to find spares are helpful as is the list of relevant publications. Put it in your pocket before you start looking. Review from Old Cars Weekly, 25th October 2007 - US magazine - Circulation: 67,500 They're cute, but your relationship with a Morris Minor could end tragically. To get all the facts before signing a title, do your research with Ray Newell(1)s book on these little Brits. Newell breaks down Morris values, cost considerations, inspection equipment, problem areas, parts availability, purchasing these vehicles, including at auctions, and much more valuable information. The Motor Cycling Club, 24th May 2008 UK club newsletter Circulation: approx 1000 Usually when Veloce Publishing sends me a book for review its size causes the postman to stagger and its price makes me think of second mortgages. This week's offering though is different. It's one of Veloce's excellent Essential Buyer's Guide series and is really down to earth in that it deals with the Morris Minor 1000 series, cars beloved by none other than our President and Entry Taker. At just under $20 anyone contemplating buying one of these charismatic vehicles cannot afford to be without a copy and indeed it's most useful reading for anyone contemplating the purchase of a classic car of any sort. It's a mine of useful information on the marque giving details of every model and variation, good and bad points including possible failings and even where to obtain spares and service when all else fails. I must admit being amused by chapter one which is headed 'Is it the right car for you?' - A question I answered with an emphatic 'No' way back in 1949 after driving an early example. Despite that I still enjoyed this little book and recommend it to all. Incidentally it always surprised me that so little was done by the Minor in competition when the A35, which looked more unlikely, did so well. There was one exception though and that was the well known 'Grannywagen' which lived in the back of the BMC Comp Shop at Abingdon and appeared in international rallies whenever someone noticed a hole in the regulations through which Pat Moss could drive it. Australian Classic Cars, April 2008Review by Patrick QuinnAustralian magazineCirculation: unknownIf you are on the lookout for a specific classic car, you can find yourself bewildered by the amount of information available. For some marques, there are books galore to read and also the advice that members of clubs happily provide. It can be confusing and sometimes it s useful to have a reference source that cuts to the chase. That s why I like this smaller format 'Essential Buyer s Guides' from Veloce. This month I had a close look at two new editions and, as a past owner, I was especially interested in the XJ6 guide. Each follows a similar format containing information on what it s like to live with the model in question, values, differing models and using the car in modern times. Each book divides the crucial inspection into two. First, the 15-minute evaluation that tells you whether to investigate further or to just walk away and second, a lengthy and thorough inspection in which you go over everything. It s clear that I bought my XJ6 with my heart and not my head. Each book then moves on to how you should buy the car, whether to restore or not, problems from lack of use and finally where to find parts and what clubs to join. Very useful little books, they make essential buying for owners, would be or otherwise."

Mark Holman for New Zealand Classic Car, October 2007NZ magazineAs with previous books from this series, these are 64-page soft-cover books, small enough to fit into a coat pocket and pretty well guaranteed to come in very handy if you are buying any of these cars from very different ends of the classic scale.All follow a similar layout, starting with 'is it the right car for you?', and then going through the 15-minute quick check (walk away or not?) followed by a very detailed checklist which you can use to 'mark' the car, and what to look out for on a test drive. There are also chapters on whether you want to restore a model, paint problems, things to watch out for if the car has had little recent use, and lists of clubs and spares specialists.The books are well-illustrated, and the advice looks really practical. They don't pretend that classic car ownership is easy, or necessary profitable in purely financial terms, yet they are clearly written by guys who are enthusiastic about the pleasure you can get from a good example of any of these cars.While I have never been in the market for them, I would want to have one of these books if I were definitely recommended."
