Hollander Interchange Manual 65-79 - group buy?

Hollander Interchange Classic Search Manual IV
Price: $149.00 + $10 shipping
Format: 2 volumes
Coverage: 1965 - 1979

According to the publisher, it covers "All domestic and foreign cars and trucks are included in this manual. It includes all body and mechanical information.".

Anybody interested in sort of "group buy"? If we get 15 people interested, we can buy one book for approx. $10 / each. I have access to high speed scanners and could scan the book to convert it into an electronic form. I just hope the pages are not those super thin ones.

I know that's not 100% honest group buy but alone I am not spending that kind of money for this book. Let's keep it open till end of May and see if we get 15 people interested.

Let me know via PM or reply to this post.

You are aware that the books are copyrighted and that what you are proposing is illegal in the US and everywhere else on the planet; except for China and maybe Indiaand any other country ending in -stan.

I am aware of that so if you think it shouldn't be here, please kill the post. It is just that I am not going to spend $150 for this book. I guess I am already braking law by lending my father some of my CDs and movies I own :-)

Update: It got me thinking. If 15 guys chip in $10 each to buy this book, how that's illegal? If we stick to sharing the printed copy, we are not braking any laws. We are not going to distribute the book outside of those people who paid their share.

I wil leave the post up as it has information pertinant to other folks that might want to do the same. I spoke up to not only help your concious a little but mostly to CYA this board and the folks that own it. No harm no foul so far.
