Yes, I remember him. Bought some Vilmer and Lion Cars from him.
Probably a Tekno or two. I thought he sold his stock to someone else - a younger guy - who printed up those pages and pages of newspaper listing - all his S American and strange stuff! I think I kept one somewhere.

I think I have all of Force's books - real source of knowledge pre-internet, but we know a lot more about the cars now than Force wrote about... Back then, that was all we had (in the US). I've got their Corgi book on the same shelf! https://www.hobbydb.com/marketplaces/hobbydb/subjects/edward-force-author
