PCS life member Scott Avniam always has them as well.
Last I saw a stack of 12 or so in his car.

Amazon is another bookseller that has this book listed from time to time.
As Darren said, PCS member Scott Avniam has several copies for sale too.

I don't know if I've seen this asked before, but why is the book not reprinted? Is there just not enough demand outside of this community, or was it printed long enough ago that its just not feasible to put out another edition? Seems like it would sell just as well as the newer pro car books Tom has put out, so I figure there is some other reason?
