who sell vintage car literature. They have a good number of Glassic / Replicar pieces for sale.
(Click on the blue sign here and look for "Glassic" by car make).

A comment about the folks at McLellan's: They went to a GREAT deal of trouble to scan and re-send these images a total of 3 times because I kept asking for larger, sharper pictures. If they provide THAT level of concern on a "free donation" -- one can be sure that paying customers will receive superior service from them !
