Original factory brochures for American cars
My father was REALLY into cars. Every year he would gather up the new car brochures from the dealer. He would come home, spread them out on the kitchen table and pour over the pages dreaming of the new car he would get.
If this scenerio reminds you of yourself or someone you know, then you will be thrilled to know about Hans Tore Tangerud's love2xlr8 (love to accelerate) web car site. He has scanned and posted his extensive collection of American car brochures and fliers.
One of the great things about these brochures is that you can find the original specs on cars.
Of course, if you aren't looking for a hot classic car, you might have better luck with Edmunds new beta version of their website that lists many of the specs of used car models for the last 15 yeas or so. This is a very valuable tool when you are trying to figure out which exactly which trim model has a specific option (such as power seats).
If there is a car lover in your life, send them these links and they will think you are just awesome.
