"These brochures are scanned from my own and contributors collections.

The intention behind this collection is for enthusiasts and restorers to find useful and original factory documentation. For brochure contributions I prefer brochures older than 1990, but special interest autos are always considered as good stuff." Original Car brochures withy photos and specs."......warning you could spend hours here...

Thanks, good site. Brings back memories. A friend of mine drove a Pontiac Straight 8. Was a good car.

Cars used to be special and unique. As kids on a trip we would have a contest to see who could recognize the cars. Now they all look the same.

I that a bad thing?

Is Barbie not based in some physical reality?

"I liked best the 1963 Corvette 327/300HP. V8 with 4 speed Wide ratio... "

I owned a 1964 Corvette 327/365 HP. V8 with 4 speed.... It would go 65 in low gear, and get up there quite quickly. In 10 years, I put 200K miles on it, and sold it for $300 less than I paid for it (I bought it used in 1968).

The car originally had a 375 hp fuel injection system, but the original owner replaced it with a stock 365 hp carburetor and intake manifold. It had a 600 (or maybe 700) cfm Holley with a high rise manifold. It red lined at 6500 rpm.

My mom bought me my first car in high school ... the 1964 Ford Mustang, stick shift. First year it was out.

I was 15 1/2 with a learner’s permit.

I still only drive shift.

We have a 1971 Chevelle, made a muscle car with a 383 stroker. Really bought the car for my grandson when he was 13. He drove it around in their back yard until he got his license and then we had the restortation and modifications done. It spends most of the time in a garage I built for it in my back yard. Price of gas spoiled the fun for my grandson that is attending college. The car is beautiful and it should be. He changed his driving habits somewhat when he had to buy the last rear tires for it.lol
