I have had that site in my FAVORITES for a few years. It's great to look at, but I am usually so busy that I just do not have the time. Over the years (I have a huge collection of brochures, dating back to 1958 - to the present - the most elaborate - by far - are the Imperial brochures. Pages of silk with pictures silk screened on material, onion skin pages, you name it.
If you do take the time to look at that site for any length of time, DO NOT overlook the Imperial. My family was strictly Imperial people (parents, cousins, uncles, aunts, etc. and they all bought from the same dealer and Sandy, here was allready a collector (1957 age 11) and I still have them, (1957-1993) go TO 1957, see the dark green Crown Coupe with the silk fan? THAT WAS REAL, a real silk fan attached to the linen page.

I have a Stutz BlackHAwk (1983) brochuere made like a stock portfolio.

One of my favorites (I do not own) is the 1985 Buick Lesabre Collector's Edition. It wasn't a terribly big brochure, but it was leather bound and had lots of cool, artsy pictures. I'm sure if I ever found it for sale, I'd look at it, but I wouldn't probably buy it...too expensive probably.

That picture reminds, dinosaurs had their asteroids, Imperials and their ilk had the "Energy Crisis."

It was a fabulous car & really turned heads! Black exterior and snow white leather and the 440 V8 and every creature comfort under the sun. Really advanced for its time. Every street felt repaved. My father went in to buy a New Yorker, and took a ride in the Imperial and forgot about the New Yorker.
He traded it in for a 1972 Imperial LeBaron in White on White with Red Leather, which then gave way to a1975 LeBaron 4-Door in Burgundy with Burgundy top & white leather.
Followed by a 1978, in Silver on Silver with Silver Leather.
In 1981 he quit driving and past away in 1985 @ 85 years
I bought a 1982 Imperial Coupe, based off of a Cordoba. It was not as good
as "the real thing" then I switched to Cadillac (1993) and now have
Lincoln Town Car. (2003) with 10,000 miles on it. I run around in a Jeep
XJ Cherokee.

I'm glad everyone found this to be so much fun! I collected car brochures for 30 years from 1978 to 2008 and had about a billion of them and sold about 98% of them to a collector but I kept my favorite Cadillac, Buick, Olds, Rolls-Royce, Mercedes, etc. As much as I enjoy holding the actual brochure in my hands it is still fun to see all this stuff online because it doesn't take up all the space of owning all the paper. :) Dave
