    re = LA Lit show

    all

    as one of the last on the bucket list,I will be at the LA Lit show in a couple of weeks time
    one stopping point will be the Auto Aero bookshop in Burbank
    are there any other bookshops similar to this in greater LA ?
    I will be staying at Corona Del Mar and will have a hire car

    is there a cash withdrawal machine somewhere near the ballrooms ?

    cheers

    Dennis if you’re referring to Porsche specific literature I think this is your best bet , while the title says “ literature “ this is only in the most formal of descriptions , there are books , magazines , posters , miniatures , models , collectibles, memorabilia , clothes , manuals , parts,
    Displays and vendors for all things 356/911/914 plus , did I say new and old (used and vintage ) parts..?
    There is also the Boys Home Sunday swap meet put on by the 356 club if you hadn’t received notice in Chino Hills , where all used and previously owned parts may be perused and examined and purchased …
    Just an FYI , Bert

    thanks Bert

    I have two Ferrari books on my want list and also AA have a couple of books on Alfa 105s I want to look at
    I already have the significant Porsche in my library
    I like fossicking around auto book shops in the hope I may find something I desperately can't live without !

    cheers

    No problem your welcome Dennis , we used to have a few Barnes and Noble book stores in LA and major cities in the US , I can say I spent more than a few days perusing their shelves and magazine racks , unfortunately the more familiar locations have either closed or moved to smaller locations .
    I used to frequent the one on the Promenade in Santa Monica but it has been closed a few years now if there’s a new location I’m not familiar with it , Bert
