Special limited edition of 100 signed luxury handmade copies.
Order yours via donation, price 160 euros, plus global shipping.
I would like to start this book with a few words about a particular category or rather better for a group of car makers who have become very popular throughout the years. More particular, more and more fans of rare classic cars ask me to inform them about the history and action of these small gems!
This group represents racing cars of mainly low-capacity, which participated in races from the late 40s to the 60s.
The name Etceterini is what surrounds the limited-car manufacturers with a sporting character that helped greatly in the development and improvement of the engines, mainly between 500 - 1200cc, leaving the big automakers in the shade with the performance-success of a handful of passionate engineers- in a family environment, without any comfort, sharing a spaghetti cooked in the garage space during the endless preparations before the races.
I have seen many constructions of such racing cars and have spoken to those who are still alive, such as engineers, drivers or offspring of the manufacturers themselves, and I was conveyed the same passion, the great love and dedication that these people had at that time and especially with the few means they possessed to complete their work.
For a first time in history the exhibition cars of Museo Bandini all photographed by me in the sun light and now is in this special limited copied book. A huge thank to my best friend Dino Bandini for the global exlusive!

Όταν ένα "όνειρο ζωής" εκπληρώνεται οφείλεις να νιώθεις πλήρης.
Είναι εξαιρετικά δύσκολη η αποτύπωση των συναισθημάτων που νιώθεις και θέλεις να μεταφέρεις σε άλλους παθιασμένους σαν κι εσένα ανθρώπους μέσω ενός βιβλίου, η αγωνία να διαβάσεις τις εντυπώσεις των αναγνωστών της δουλειάς σου είναι συγκρίσιμη με την αγωνία που νιώθεις όταν κρατάς το τιμόνι ενός τέτοιου ιστορικού αυτοκινήτου!

When a "dream of life" is fulfilled you ought to feel complete.
It is extremely difficult to capture the emotions that you feel and want to move to other passionate people like you through a book, the agony to read the impressions of your readers is comparable to the anxiety that you feel when you hold the wheel of such a historic car!
Vasileios Papaidis book author.
This book brought me back some really nice memories. I have visited the museum a few years ago, I have been give a ride in the Saponetta (Dino Bandini was at the helm!) & I can honestly say that this was one of the best days of my life. This book, with its very professional photos, brief and concise descriptions, brought back many wonderful memories & I sincerely thank Vasileios for making such a great piece of historical significance for all Bandini & Etceterini lovers. Highly reccomended!
