Still selling the new book, and a few on here have bought it already, but of course the New Year brings a fresh forum page, so my previous thread has dropped off to last year.
US$20 including postage.
Anyone interested, message me through the forum link.
Great Book Chris. Enjoying reading it (the second time)
Well Done!!! All speedster owners need one!
How can I buy this book??
Just click on Chris Martin's name at the top of the posting and it brings up his profile. He is the author of the book, lives in Australia. Then scroll down to where it says "Click here to send private message to Greasemonkey" You can also go to his profile page by clicking on: http://www.mtfca.com/cgi-bin/discus/board-profile.cgi?action=view_profile&profil e=greasemonkey-users He has been posting on the forum for several years and I believe he has a 1927 Ford.
Just send him a private message asking him how much money to send for sending his book to you in Belgium. And also what form of payment.
As close as you are to France, perhaps the Montier's Ford raced on a track there also?

I just contact Chris about the book.
A few years ago 2008 a replica of the car take part of the 24 hours race for classic cars in Le Mans. I just collect some pictures of the car during the race. The story can be found on the French Model T site.
Happy new Year to you all
Ford-T.jimdo.com or Ford-T.fr will bring you on the story.
Andre, I got your order, will mail tomorrow.
And yes, the Montier story is on the French Ford T site; Olivier has been on here in the past with information on that. A good read too, but this book is the first time the whole story has been published in English.
Mine arrived whilst I away. What a great book and well done by Chris.
Thanks David, I was hoping this would flush out some more clues re the Montier Fords. Olivier has posted the reports and photos from the French club before, and others have often repeated some of that info, but there must be more to discover yet.
My book arrived yesterday. It is very well done and finally documents the story of the Moniter Fords in English.
Hap; Montier certainly did race regularly in Belgium, at Malchamps Spa Coupe de la Meuse, Falmignoul hillclimb (Dinant), Gozin sprint (also at Dinant), Mont Theux hillclimb and of course many times at Spa for both the Belgian Grand Prix and Grand Prix d'Europe which was held there in 1930. He achieved some good results there, but most of these were in the 1930s in the modified Model A based Montier-Fords.
There were also customers who raced Montiers in Belgium, a M. Crispin, and Armaury Pety de Thozée achieved a few minor results in 1923 and '24.
I thought it time to bump a reminder back to the top of the forum as surprisingly there has not been much interest in this book from American members. I had sent a brief overview of the Montier tale to Jay back in January for inclusion in the Vintage Ford hoping that would generate some interest, but as of the latest VF it appears he still has not had the space to fit it in. Anyway, copies are still available for $20 including mailing cost.
