Research material--Collectible Automobile
Posted by hot ford coupe on Wednesday, January 28, 2004 5:53 PM
I originally posted this in tips and techniques, but I think it was in the wrong place. As I was cleaning out my magazine collection, I came across one that I forgot all about. It's called Collectible Automobile and it caters to the factory stock and replica builders. The photography is some of the best I've seen. The photos, particularly the critical ones are mostly in color and right up close. You can find body, paint, engine and interior details. They even include a paint chip chart for the original colors. The issue I have in front of me has detail on 1950-53 Oldsmobile, a 71 Road Runner, a 1940 Pontiac Woodie, and 71-78 Australian Chrysler Charger Hemi. There is also a small section on collectible scale autos. It's a bit expensive but well worth the price if it means you need the exact detail and color. ($7.00 US and $8.00 Canadian)
I'm hopelessly addicted to building models. Not finishing them, just building them.

Another good one is Hemmings Muscle Machines. Great color photos of the car inside and out. Definitely a must for the muscle car builder. And, it is only $12 a year!
