Response to the single Road and Track club notice has been excellent. Details on 29 cars have been compiled and there are 12 paid members at mid-April. Expenses of $68.05 leave a balance in the kitty of $77 prior to duplication of this letter. Member John Wright has send me 10 Xerox copies of the Italia Owners mamual. (It does not contain a wiring diagram so Edward Ueberall's diagram will be sent to all members.) Those wanting an Italia manual should contact me.It is hoped that those receiving one will duplicate it and return the original for distribut- ion to new members. A brief Torino manual is also similarly available (contains small factory wiring diagram).
