"100 Jahre auf 3 Rädern" by Michael Graf Wolff Metternich
« on: March 05, 2011, 05:41:03 PM »
If you are looking for the ultimate anorak car book, this is it. Michael Graf Wolff Metternich, automotive historian and Maybach specialist, has written this book about German threewheelers, or to be correct, about German three-track vehicles. This excludes motorbikes with sidecars. The 475 pages of this book are filled with information and b/w pictures you will probably find nowhere else. He managed to find illustrations of almost every obscure threewheeler ever built in Germany, ranging from motorized threewheeled bicycles to street sweeping trucks. I love this book. Unfortunately this book is very rare. I only saw it once (and immediately bought it). It cost 40 Euro in 1997, when new. It isn't listed at amazon.

I guess if someone has found a copy he's be happy to add it to his own archive..
So, if I find a second copy I'll surely let you know! ;)

So far I searched all of the sources and online bookstores I know. Positive results: zero  :-\

It has taken most of my search time today too. No luck. No copy to be found. :'(
I hope possible sellers won't read this tread. Prices will go up  :-X

apart from that it's pricy that smell kept me from buying it. It's nearly impossible to get rid of it.

To give you an impression of this book I scanned the two pages covering the Wolo (http://www.autopuzzles.com/forum/index.php?topic=15517.0):
(Size of the pages reduced)

After being offline for almost a week I had to face that I set my limit too low. :(
