The kick off issue. Upper ball joints, yoke failure and race report from Laguna Seca, October 2002.
After seeing the effort that Vern Jaques had to put into an issue of the LFFR Bulletin, using the paste-up method, I feel like I'm cheating using WordPerfect and Adobe Distiller to do the same. All I can say is "Thanks Vern".
One final caution, these are somewhat LARGE files, up to 6 MB. It's a delicate balance between image quality and file size. They may take some time to load, dependent on the speed of your Internet connection. Enjoy!
Back issues of the Bulletin have been scanned, at high resolution, and are now available on a CDROM. Cost to US destinations is $5.00 via First Class mail. Cost to the UK is $6.00 via First Class mails (usually 5 to 6 days). Please e-mail for pricing on other shipping options and locations.
