Time Sink: Hundreds of Automotive Brochures from the Last Hundred Years

My Dearest Hoons,

I hope this message finds you in good spirits. I chose this late afternoon timeslot to post this because I love you and I want you to stay employed and/or not expelled from school. The worst that this post will do is leave you single, which isn’t going to matter because after seeing just a snippet of this, you will want to be alone.

First off, allow me to say that the tips regarding this amazing find came from so some many people that I cannot possibly mention all of you and thank all of you personally. Have no doubt however, that you are in my thoughts. And in a not in a Chris Hansen disapproving sort of way either.  Anyway, why don’t you have a seat right over there.

The below links contain a gateway to hundreds of automotive brochures from the 1920s all the way up to the last decade. All are nicely scanned in and sorted in alphabetical and chronological order. This collection is simply amazing: DeSoto, Pierce, Stutz, Duesenberg, Hudson, Studebaker, and others. The collection also includes foreign cars of which there are simply too many to name.

I have spent about two hours on these sites with no end in sight. This is simply amazing. The domain names look a little weird, but it’s harmless (except the above), so click away:


Link 1 – American Cars

Link 2 – Foreign Cars

Thanks for the tip Skitter, Longroofian, SloppyMcCheese and many others.

Sincerly yours,
