Where Are the Books?

Right now Alex and Melinda are busy unpacking the 50 tons of car and truck automotive factory shop manuals (also known as factory service manuals, factory workshop manuals, or factory repair manuals) in our warehouse. We acquired them from another automotive book business when the owner retired. They were not in any kind of database. So we are unpacking and sorting thousands of books. Then we’ll enter them in a database so you can find them to purchase.

We plan to open our eBay store first, then our web shop. Please check back again for updates.

In the meantime, please follow our progress here on our blog and on our Facebook and YouTube pages.

We have many sources for all kinds of car, truck, motorcycle, and automotive-related books. And we love to help our customers find their special book. Just contact us and let us know what you need.
