Towe Auto Museum (Sacramento) - CS Regirstry Book

Fellow GT/CS enthusiasts,

The other weekend I spent a few hours going through the Sacramento Towe Auto Museum looking at many Ford products including an impressive display of early production models (As, Ts, etc.). Unfortunately there were no GT/CSs but low and behold, in the gift shop, sitting like the holy grail, was 2 brand spankin new copies of the GT/Californial Special Recognition Guide and Owners Manual (first editions). It was nice to see that the literature has made it to a museum.

If you are looking for a rainy day activity and find yourself in the greater Sacramento region, stop by the Towe Auto Museum. Attached is a URL.

I believe they were $18.95. They were under $20 for sure.

I called the gift shop and the person who answered the phone told me they just sold the 4 copies they had to a single buyer.

How Weird.

I took those copies on my 1988 edition in person, and sold them to the gift shop about 1994. They must have been put away for a really long time! I haven't been there since!

Someone got a small gold mine. Look on EBAY now.

I guess that was the book equivalent of finding an old car in a barn.
