  1. digital living library

    This idea is very similar to how wikipedia and other wiki's work. For as much gripes as wikipedia gets for not being a trustworthy source because of public submissions, there are a bunch of checks and balances within their system and incorrect facts get replaced usually within minutes. It may not ever replace a hard line reference, but it is a great starting point for research.
  2. R.I.P Cars and Parts

    Hey Richard, we have a copy in the AACA library. I've attached a pdf of the article here for you. Enjoy. Cars & Parts 2010 May - Last Squarebird.pdf
  3. Do you have any old suits to donate? Our video budget is very low, ha.
  4. 1928 Pontiac serial / VIN location? Help needed.

    The Standard Catalog of American Cars states that "(For 1928 Pontiacs) Serial numbers were on the right side of the rear frame cross-member or on the frame under the left front fender. Starting: 204001-28. Ending: 334005-28. Motor numbers were on the left side of the crank case or near the left front corner of the block. Starting: 220001. Ending: P376340 (apporximate). All cars built in Pontiac, Mich." For 1928.5 Pontiacs - "serial numbers were on the rear frame cross-member or under the left front fender. Starting: 334006. Ending: 410100. Engine numbers were on the left side of the crank case or near the left front corner of the block. Starting: P376341. Ending: P461000 (apporximate). All cars built in Pontiac, Mich."
  5. GIGANTIC AACA Library Literature Sale-HERSHEY!

    New promotional video for our Yard Sale. This year we parodied the new jumanji movie trailer out later this year. Hope to see everybody there.
  6. Some excerpts from a 1932 Essex Terraplane catalog

    This particular item is part of the Hudson Essex Terraplane Historic Society collection. We cataloged the items as they were filed and given to us. We will have to check with them about the dating of this particular piece. Thanks.
  7. Clarion Car Audio - 1988 ad

    Eh, yes and no. Clarion is mostly an aftermarket stereo company but it has been used in cars from the factory. While this is mostly import models, Ford has used them over the years too. Another thing of note is that our blog is catered towards more of the car culture crowd than historians as Tumblr has a younger demographic and we're just trying to build awareness of the club through that avenue. The Tumblr blog is just automatically posted here on the forums through its RSS Feed as to provide some daily content that might not be seen by the crowd here on the forums. So while this ad may not be exactly for a factory marque we think it still fits our purpose for the blog.
  8. Last February we started a crowdfunding venture to raise money so we could build a version of the 16mm kinograph film scanner for our library. After many months of building and tweaking we finished it up Mike's Movie Machine shortly after the new year. To see how it works and find out how we put the whole thing together, we ask that you watch the ~15 minute video about our journey. We would like to once again thank everyone that has helped or donated to this project over the last year or so. Let us know what you think about it. Give us some likes and shares to get the word out about this great project that we've been chugging along at. Thanks.

  13. 1942 Hudson’s 

    @joe_padavano Generally we do, but just like everybody else we sometimes we make mistakes. Especially on these tumblr posts as we do them in bulk to set them and forget them.
  14. We recently had a research question to find a vertical...

    That we did John. The 1987 version would have already been filled with all sorts of neon colors.
  15. AC Spark Plugs from 1963 featuring the Chevrolet Corvette

    Hey Joe, technically we're both kinda right. The ad was for the AC spark plugs and was from 1963. The car is the Mako Shark car from 1961, but as you can see from the ad and from the "corvette" badge on the front end, it was an experimental concept for the Corvette, which in retrospect I should have noted in the caption. Thanks for looking and keeping us on our toes.
