  1. @TexRiv_63, thanks for the "shout out." Glad to hear you were happy with your shop manual. We don't always get shop manuals in unused shape, but when we do we are happy to see them go to a good home. If anyone else is interested, we have plenty more shop manuals available through our eBay store! Click here to visit the AACA Library eBay store Have a good one!
  2. @nzcarnerd , it's definitely a liberty and based on the acetylene lamps it is a 2nd series (the 1st series used electric lamps). It looks like there are plenty of variations out there, so I'm not too sure of the date, so I'm putting it at circa 1918, though it could also be a 1919.
  3. Thanks, @nzcarnerd . It's definitely a Marmon 34, and after looking at our Marmon book I have to agree. It is not easy to narrow things down on sight alone. Going off of memory, I remember reading that hood louvers were introduced in 1921, so it would be a circa 1916 to 1920. In 1918, the front windshield shape on the touring car was squared off, while the 1917 and prior were rounded. With the top up in the photos, it is very hard to tell which variation is we have here.
  4. @nzcarnerd, I came up with the same thing after seeing your note - A 79T 5-pass. touring car. Thanks!
  5. @nzcarnerd, great work! You really hit the nail on the head with this one. This particular Broc appears in the Hand Book of Automobiles from 1914 through 1916. They used the same image for their advertising from 1914 through 1916. Here are images from the 1915 and 1916 Hand Book of Automobiles.
  6. Thanks, guys! It's definitely a Dodge Screenside and, after looking through the Crestline book and our literature, I came up with a model year of 1923.
  7. The last one is definitely a '25 Buick, and the 2nd one is definitely a 1936 DeSoto. It appears to be the Airstream Business Coupe.
  8. Thank you, everyone, for all the help with these! I was able to verify a few of these with the time I had. @nzcarnerd, the radiator mascot/hood ornament you are referring to could be an aftermarket thing. In fact, I think it might be a Yosemite National Park souvenir. The reason I think it is is that the emblem also appears to be on the Buick (last image). You can see it on the front of the grille, right atop the license plate.
  9. @drwatson , thanks for your note. The actual photograph is pretty tiny. If you are looking at it via a PC or laptop, the digital image would dwarf the real one. :-) I believe Tumblr downgrades the resolution of the image a bit. If you would like the original image to analyze further, don't be a stranger. You can email me at mhocker@aaca.org, and reference the image caption in the subject heading: "(#22) What is it? Identify that car! Ranier National Park Edition" @nzcarnerd, feel free to do the same for any of the other photos you see. You have been a great help so far. Thanks again for taking the time to look into them.
  10. @keiser31 Thanks for the help. I do believe you are correct. It appears to be a 6-46 Fairfield touring car.
  11. Thanks so much! Still not completely sure on the date, but one of our Tumblr followers shared a link to a better photograph of the Hammersmith Foden steam wagon.
  12. @nzcarnerd Thanks for all the help you have been providing the past few days. I'm looking at the photos and our source material to help back up identifications. It looks like you really hit the nail on the head with this one, and you have a great eye. I checked, and we do not appear to have anything on the Skootamota, so this is a new one for us.
  13. A few years ago, I wrote an article on these vehicles for the library column in Antique Automobile. The library has a small collection of literature pertaining to Soviet-built cars, including the ZIL/ZIS. I believe the car you have a photograph of was the same one that went on tour throughout the U.S. after it was captured. In fact, after finishing the article we came across one of the flyers distributed to promote the exhibition of the captured vehicle. It came in with a bunch of other random odds and ends. If you would like to read the article, click here. And here is the catalog entry describing the flyer.
  14. The first thought that came to mind was "Gals in the Garage." I realize you need the connection with senior citizens, so you could modify it as needed. IE: Senior Gals in the Garage. My colleague also mentioned Garage Gals.

  16. Correct, it's a video file so it didn't automatically embed it in the forums when it was auto-posted here.
  17. Hi Joe, You are correct. The ad is from '66 and features '67 Chargers. The 1967 year is listed among the tags on the original Tumblr post (just not in the title).
  18. Wow! Thank you all so much for sharing such wonderful photographs. To everyone else, feel free to keep on sending them!
  19. Hi Everyone! AACA's Junior Member publication, Wheels, is looking for ways to liven up its content for kids. Inspired by a recent thread on the forums, we would like to include a section with pictures of children enjoying the old car hobby, whether it's sitting behind the wheel of their parents'/grandparents' favorite ride or helping out with grandpa or grandma's latest restoration. Children featured in Wheels will receive a complimentary copy of the magazine. If you think you have a great photo for the magazine, please feel free to share it here or email it to the editor, Matthew Hocker via: mhocker@aaca.org In order for a photograph to be featured in Wheels, we will need the following: 1. Your permission to publish your photograph in Wheels. 2. Your child/grandchild's name (full name or first name) 3. Your child/grandchild's age 4. Your child's state of residence 5. A brief description of the photograph (ie: make and model year of car, description of what they are doing, etc.) If you have a cool story associated with the photograph or enjoying the hobby with your child/grandchild, we would also be open to featuring your story as its own article! Find out more: If you have any questions about our Junior Membership, Wheels, etc. please contact Matthew Hocker at mhocker@aaca.org or by phone (Mon.-Fri. 8 AM-4 PM EST) via the following number: 717-534-2082 For more information on the Junior Membership program, please refer to our website.
  20. Hello everyone, Did you know AACA has a junior membership program for children up to age 12? Junior memberships are $10 per year and come with a subscription to Wheels, the junior member newsletter/magazine. This magazine is published quarterly and consists of historical write-ups, activity pages, and much more. We are looking for contributors to the junior member magazine.

Do you have a personal story about the hobby? Do you want to write about your first car? Looking to share your experiences of touring with your grandkids? We are interested in any content submissions you might have. Since the magazine is written for children, we would also like to see more content submissions from kids.
