This just in from former Dealernews publisher Don Emde:
Whew! Happy to report that after 15 months of research and writing, followed by 5+1/2 months of production with our art director Morgan Williams, the Fred Fox biography is at the printer right on time to the day. The hardbound 11x11 plus an embossed dust jacket, 324 pages, 100,000 words and 700+ photos with captions. It has been a huge project, but Fred's amazing career and life story will be told. And it's quite a story.
Fred Fox, who passed away on February 5, 2023, started his Parts Unlimited distributing business by himself at his house in 1967 and today with 5 warehouses in the U.S., 2 in Canada, 1 in Germany and 1,000+ employees worldwide, LeMans Corporation continues as the world's largest privately-owned Powersports distributing company.
No details yet on pricing or availability. The book was produced for LeMans Corp, who we have been publishing magazines for since 1994. Their initial distribution will be internal to dealers, suppliers, sales reps and employees. We may also have copies available for purchase, details to follow.
