Don't need this library of car building books anymore, so here they go! All are in good to excellent condition. The Miata Manual has the most wear, but even that one is perfect for the shop. All the rest are like new or have a few notations and highlites.

I've listed them with the Amazon price for comparison. Obviously I'd love to sell the collection as a group, but even if you want more than one or two let me know and we'll work out a deal. Mailing is not included in the price, but book rate shouldn't be more than a few bucks.

Thanks for the books. Great transaction.

They were waiting for me when I got home from camping yesterday. I already spent some time reading through them.
