One of the things most missing in documenting our cars other than missing factory documentation are the historical automotive publications from that era. At best, most people did the same thing I still do; keep the magazines until you run out of space and then toss the entire collection into the trash or recycle bin. I cringe at some of the things I have thrown out over the years. However, some people were smart and hoarded these items (they are also most likely not married and never moved) and with swap meets and eBay they are now available again.
I recently picked up some appropriate old magazines and Auto Week newspapers. (Remember when Auto Week was a newspaper and not a magazine? That’s when it was good!)
Here are some samples of what I found. There is much more to come. If you are a Team Member you will be able to read the complete detailed articles on our Team Members only Resource Pages.
