    Default Amongst the "stuff" I acquired

    Over the years I have been flirting with the brand I have acquired a number of things I treasure, a couple of copies of the R8 Gordini brochure (the one many have, A3 size great photos, details etc etc) , A110 owners handbook (Dinalpin too!) but I have just discovered a brochure, similar to the one for the 8G, for a 12G, in English. I did not know it existed. A bit used but what a treasure. Stocktake is slowly taking place. I suppose one day the family will hate me for acquiring all this!

    G'day,
    no they wont. When you are gone, the ephemera will be worth more than you can imagine. Keep it in good nick, in acid free plastic or photo albums. No annotations, but dated written notes next to the items are always good.
    Have a look at 'Antiques Roadshow' on the ABC. Some of this stuff is worth heaps, [that is a technical term meaning lots].

    If the kids don't call in local rubbish remover who will recognize the value and make a tidy profit.

    G'day,
    probably the rubbish remover in his trusty Berlingo van.

    Judging by the comments I get, they'll only hate you if it isn't properly organised, filed and labelled. I have this task ahead of me....

    My wife and son will just throw my collection. I tell my daughter, who is also a collector of stuff, to sell my stuff or at least pass it on to the Reno club. It is worth money on ebay.
