Hi and welcome to my CLASSIC CAR CATALOGUE.
It is based on original advertisements and brochures which have been scanned from my own collection of magazines, books and many downloaded from the internet.
My collection started in the early 1980's and became computer based in 1990.
Still updated, but not finished yet.
The website is still growing up. If you find any errors in the site (links or pictures that don't work), please let me know.
Also lots of pages are not yet ready - it will take me years to finish it completely and I suspect there will always be something new to add.
Nevertheless, you can find here several thousands of pictures and lots of information. I'm trying to update the site once per month.
Latest main updates:
... and a lot more bits and pieces.
Navigation throughout should be easy:
from first 'By Year' page, you will go to the list of manufacturers and then you can choose particular manufacturer.
Two new pages 'By Make' and 'By Model' lets you to easier find a particular brand or model.
If you enjoy the site and found it useful and informative and feel you
would like to contribute to it's upkeep then any: photographs, brochures, adverts sent by email or financial donations via

The website is run by enthusiast for enthusiasts.
