Feature of the Week - Restorer Index


July 30 - I'm sure you're aware that an index of each full volume of The Restorer is published each year. Those indexes are handy if you're trying to locate a specific article.

But what if you're not sure which volume the article was published? Searching through each annual index would take quite a bit of time. If you could even find them all.

Enter RINDEX - a computerized summary of the articles in The Restorer magazine. There are several versions of RINDEX to help you pinpoint the years you're searching for. You can find these indexes on the DOWNLOADS page. Choose the version of RINDEX that's closest to the years you want to search. Then use your PDF program's "search" feature to find what you're looking for.

More Scams

July 11 - A new classified scam has been reported. Beware of any buyer who wants to pay full price for a vehicle without seeing it in person and who want to pay by certified cashiers check including an extra amount to pay to the shipping agent. Most of the time, those cashiers checks are bogus.
