[ROVERNET - UK] Unwanted Rover manuals?????

        The simple answer is YES!  Manuals that used to fetch £20.00 at autojumbles over here are now on Ebay for £3 - £ 5

I see a similar situation with Corgi models (the original 50's/60's ones) which are now easily obtained relatively cheaply. I think the only ones to still make a reasonable return are the 'pristine' items. I did pay £12.50 for an perfect P5 Parts Catalouge last week at Ally Pally show but it really was in excellent condition and had the 1963 dark blue insert to update the part nos to MkII Saloon/Coupe differences. One for the bookshelf NOT the garage.  :)

Subject: [ROVERNET - UK] Unwanted Rover manuals?????

I'm somewhat puzzled that there seems to be no demand for Rover factory 
manuals for the P4 and P5 offered in nice shape in the $20 USD price 
range. Last time I listed these manuals, they did not sell. A couple of 
years ago, manuals like these were selling for around $50 each.

What do you think is going on? Has the internet finally managed to 
properly distribute these things around the globe so that everyone 
already has all the manuals they want?
