    Default Which of these is the real deal?

    So I'm gonna break down and finally buy the shop manual and assembly manual for my car. Not that there's much on the car anymore that's stock, but there's still enough to make it worth it. Or if only to be able to help others.

    It seems that people suggest ebay as the place to go for the manuals.
    If this LINK still works, which of the items listed (bound/printed material) seem like the real deal or best buy?

    I doubt any of the CD's listed are legit and/or OEM. However, I might pick one up as backup since it's nice to be able to print out individual and disposable pages.

    Andre,That is the one you want to be able to work on your vette.
    they can be a lifesaver,I have referenced mine many times.
    However,these are reproduction books NOT the originals...
    some of the electrical symbols may be hard to read B/C the ink was to heavy,and it may be difficult at best to see some of the symbols

    Thanks for the replies, everyone!
    After searching around, I found that
    is contained on this:

    So I bought the CD instead of the printed book for reasons listed in this previous thread/post. The CD also includes other manuals (listed here) that may or may not be of interest.

    I also bought this


    I bought the stuff from Faxon Auto Literature. I found their stuff via their eBay store, but placed the order over the phone. Total price was $58.38 shipped.
