  1. A more in depth preview video will be available once everything gets set up, but until then you can watch Jason Aston Murder show off some of the items that will be in the yard sale via the AACA Home Shopping Network.
  2. Thanks @John_S_in_Penna Your books are packed up and ready to be picked up by the mail man.
  3. Hi @sebastienbuick the other National Lampoon's "Vacation" movies are European Vacation, Christmas Vacation, and Vegas Vacation. None of those are really car/travel heavy, with exception to European Vacation where they trek across Europe. They are all very funny though, if you enjoyed the humor of the other two you've watched. Canonball Run is another fun movie. Grand Theft Auto is another one with Ron Howard. The Outsiders was adapted from a book but features the fifties culture, but not too much on the cars, but it might strike your fancy.
  4. @Terry Bond We do not have the Turkey Red Cards. We do have a set of Abdulla cigarette cards though.
  5. We have an almost complete set of the 1953 Bowman Antique Autos series of trading cards. They are a really neat set of cards that have illustrations on the front and a 3D illustration on the back to be used with red/blue 3D glasses, see examples attached. We are missing the following: 9 - Gaeth, 10 - Alco, 11 - Chadwick Racer, 18 - Lancia, and our number 19 - Benz Racer is damaged. If anybody has these missing cards and would like to donate them we would greatly appreciate your help in completing our set. Thanks.
  6. Thanks for that. This photo was in the 1941 file and I was more curious about the guy to really look into whether it was the right year or not. We will re-file this in its correct place.
  7. We have this photo in the library of a 1941 Lincoln Continental and the reverse is stamped "courtesy Paramount Studios" and we were wondering who the guy is. Possible actor?
  8. We've slashed some prices this year. All $10 items have been moved to the $5 area and the $2 items are now $1. Watch the video below for a sneak preview.
  9. It's Spring cleaning time and The AACA Library is having a 50% off sale for most of its Buy It Now items in its ebay store. There are close to 3,000 items in this sale including photos, books, sales literature, shop manuals, and more. Auction format items are not included in this sale.
  10. The Golfs/Rabbits are still being made as well. The Passat was called the Dasher in the US back then and that is still going strong as well.
  11. We try. Thanks for appreciating it.
  12. That's good news. Just to let you know though the library is open Monday-Saturday 8-4pm (we're closed on Sundays) We will be closed for the next few Saturdays though due to the holiday season. Check our website, facebook page, or give us a call (717-534-2082) ahead of time to make sure we will be open on a Saturday.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. Do you have any old suits to donate? Our video budget is very low, ha.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Round 1 had some great match ups and you can view our recap in the video on our facebook page or view it below. While you're there, go ahead and like the library page on facebook if you haven't already. You can vote for Round 2 match ups here. Voting will Close on Thursday March 30 at 11:59 PM. This is all meant to be good clean fun and promote the library. If you haven't read one or any of these books it is ok to just pick the subject you like better, or the cover you like better, or the author, or whatever.
