Seller's tip: Comedian Jay Leno owns one of only two (2) Chrysler Turbine cars outside of a museum. One wonders if even he has these booklets. There are only three (3) of the first booklet listed for sale on the used book market and they ship from Germany. There is only one (1) copy for sale of the second booklet. These were purchased at an estate auction in Neapolis, Ohio, outside of Toledo.
