  17. We take the liberty to inform you about a Dutch photobook we have published, dealing with the second use of WW II softskin vehicles in the seventies and eighties of the 20th century. In these decades we photographed Morris Commercials, Austins, Bedfords, GMC's, Autocars, Pacifics and more (about 30 different makes) in civilian use in Belgium, the south of the Netherlands and Northern France. 250 hi-quality photos inside. You can find all about on this website. http://www.frituurzorro.nl
  18. Well, Thanx for the support. I hope your message will generate other sales, since we put a lot of energy and money in it. I am satisfied if we reach a break even point, but that is still far away
  19. A bit late, but here I am. My name is Theo Barten (1948), living in Holland; graduated from art school, editorial and technical illustrator (esp. infographics). I am interested in all kinds of historical transport (from WW ll planes to oceanliners) but most of all: soft-skin vehicles from WWll. With my friend Maarten Swarts we made a survey of used miltary vehicles in the seventies and took over 2000 photo's. You can find 250 of them in the book 'Frituur Zorro', furtheron on this site.
