Welcome to Fetherston’s Treasure Box of Classic Woodys blog.
You might be curious as to why I call this the Last Great Woody Book. My feeling is that we’re faced with the morphing of the printed word to the world of E-books. That will be a sad day for me because I’ve always enjoyed the tactile sensation of holding a book in my hand and being absorbed by a great story.
My Treasure Box of Classic Woodys is my third book on woodys, and was a five-year research endeavor – a labor of love. It is my way of sharing the pleasure of a trip back in time to examine the woody station wagon history in depth and provide something more than eye candy. The box contents provide the opportunity to examine first hand the types of wood used in the manufacture of these beauties, look through a sampling of original and custom decals prized by woody enthusiasts, give the Dime Store toy a run, and lots more. May you get as much fun out of the Treasure Box, as you do from reading through the history of woody station wagons in this great publishing project! See at. http://www.dfwoodybook.com/
The book has sold really well and we are down to the last 50 copies.
