I will be stocking the new book by Kjell Qvale, I have ordered some for delivery by airmail which should be available before xmas, and another quantity on a slow boat. The first ones will be more expensive due to the air freight charges. Cost is likely to be around the 15 to 20 GBP mark. I will confirm prices when I know freight costs.

Please contact me if you are interested in these.

Kjell owned Jensen from the early 70s through until the company went bust in 76.

I for one have been waiting for this book with anticipation. Zac's comment, 'until they went bust in 1976' has always been controversial with Kjell's version differing from our own members that were there and even rumours of a 'DeLorean rescue package'. This is a must buy. Put me down for one Zac and does any other buyer want to do a revue of it? I believe it's called 'I never look back' as reported in my column some time ago.
Cheerio for now, Alan.

I don't remember Jensens being mentioned in 'Look Back in Anger' guess I'll have to re-read it.
