For those of you that attended the Baja 1000 event at the Petersen Museum in LA last September, you may remember the event's organizer, Marty Fiolka, mention that he was writing a book about the Baja 1000. He said then it would be released in mid-2001. I received the latest Classic Motorbooks flier in the mail yesterday and it was advertised for $39.95, saying it would be available 12/15/01. It's supposed to be 10"x10", hardcover, with about 150 pages(pretty steep price, imho). I decided to order it anyway so I called last night, credit card in hand. When I mentioned what I wanted, the lady on the phone said, "Uh oh, that one's on backorder and we don't expect it to be available until June 2002!" Oh well....I guess we'll have to wait awhile longer for it. I hope it's worth the wait. Ivan's truck is on the cover.
