  1. Good morning, I have a lot of old logos from advertisements that I have and I'm in the process of cleaning them up. Abbott-Detroit - Apperson - Atlas - Auburn - Buick - Cadillac - Cartercar - Chalmers - Chandlerv -Chrysler - Cole - Columbia - DeSoto - Elmore - Empire - Essex - Ford - Franklin - Garford - Graham Paige - Haynes Jackson - KisselKar - Lexington - Lincoln - Locomobile - Marquette - Matheson - Maxwell - Mercury - Moon -Nash - National - Oakland - Oldsmobile - Pierce Arrow - Plymouth - Pontiac - Pope-Toledo - Waverly - Rauch Lang - REO - Speedwell - Standard Steel - Star - Stearn
  2. This is the last of them but I do have more, just need to clean them up. Fred Melbourne FL
  3. Sorry to take so long but here's a few more. Fred Melbourne FL
  4. Good morning, I am interested in buying old car and truck ads so I can add to my collection. Right now the automobiles I have are listed below. I clean them up and display them on my website for others to look at plus I print magnets using the car in the ad(s). I am not looking for museum quality ads, just plain old ads, yellowed from age, musty from sitting in the garage for 30 years, etc... If you do not wish to sell them but possibly 'rent them' to me so I can scan them, we should be able to work something out. Photograph your ads and I may be able to also use them, this way you don't have
  5. Good morning, I am interested in buying old car and truck ads so I can add to my collection. I have 5000+ ads both cars and trucks but always looking for more.

  6. Good morning JohnD, I've got 12, 1956 Buick ads. Currently (at last count), I have 770 Buick ads - both ads and scanned pages from dealer brochures. Dates range from 1905 to the late 80's. Most ads are 1930's to the late 50's. I think it would be a lot of fun if a separate thread was created for only vintage ads - for all makes of cars and trucks. I figure I've got well over 5000 ads ranging from 1898 to the late 1980's. I basically stopped collecting when the artwork in the ads started changing from real drawings done by artists to photos. Just seems photos don't give the ad enough character
  7. Here's a few more that I hope you like. I did not place a watermark on these so you can use them as is. All I ask is that you do not reproduce them and sell them for profit. You are free to use them for your personal and club use.\
  8. Good morning Robert, I've got 10 ads which I will e-mail to you. These will be fullsize and you are welcome to edit them to suit your needs. Fred
  9. Good morning, My name is Fred and I'm in Melbourne FL. Got laid off and have since 'retired' and spending most of my time cleaning my ads and selling on Ebay. My father had a 1954 Buick and as a kid, I remember how big it was. Thru the years he went to a 53 Plymouth Coupe, Rambler and then a '56 Chrysler New Yorker. Since a Buick was my first introduction to cars, I've sorta got stuck on them. Years later my brother and I bought a '39 Hudson and tried to restore it. However, being in the Marines for many years, I lost interest and it was expensive so I decided to collect automobile ads in 1973
  10. Hope you enjoy them - only 32 more to go. I spent many hours reworking the original ads/signs. In most cases, I used the original fonts typestyles. Colors may be off on a few as the originals were very discolored from age. Fred Melbourne FL
  11. I'm not sure how many signs I can post here for you but I'll keep posting until they tell me to stop. Think I'll try them alphabetically. Fred Melbourne FL
  12. Good morning, I thought I would share some of my automible dealer signs. Collecting since 1973, these and other ads, were scanned in when computers came about. These are a few of the service signs I currently have - Baker Electric to Willys. I do not sell signs. Hope you like them. Fred Melbourne FL
