I have a couple of questions regarding the RS500 road car program, and have read all his books on the cars and not seen the areas I have questions about covered.

I was hoping he uses the site and might be able to help me out.

If anyone does know him could you please point him in in the direction of this thread

appreciate any help

thanks

PAUL

Hello Paul,

I have the honour of being his son. I can pass on any queries you may have - I'm sure he'll be happy to help!

Hi Hamish - does that mean we can send you other questions about your Dad's books too?
That is meant in a positive way as I'm sure everyone on TNF would like to know more about Graham; I would!!

I will Graham, my book shelf is groaning under the weight of your books, it will probably collapse if you publish anymore....................welcome to TNF, I am just reading Boreham (again...) and would welcome particularly a compendium on the years of the MK 1 and 11 Lotus Cortinas, a fascinating time for me as a youngster at Brands (weekly).

Make me an offer, find me a publisher .... but will not 'RS2000' (of this parish) know more than I do ?

[Seriously, I am just about to complete a massive re-appraisal of all the 'works' Escorts, having exhumed all the skeletons, canards, tall stories and untruths about them all. Except that I am still short of just a handful of photographs the job is complete. For publication in 2012....]

So, to keep me away from the pub in 2012, why not a book about Cortina race and rally cars ? Why not indeed ?

Welcome Graham - this is the most astonishing place, a real peer-group reality check.

No. no - not an update of the old book, but a completely new title (longer, fatter, crammed with colour pictures), to be published by Herridge & Sons in 2012.
