: Does anyone here collect car brochures?

I was wondering if anyone else here collects car brochures like I do.

I have been collecting them from every new car auto show since I was 5 (1992). I dont keep many of them for more than a year. It's just something I find of interest. Its something that I like to page through when I get bored. My mother always thought It was odd how I did this, but I never saw anything wrong with it. Maybe I have OCD or something :hmm:

Does anyone else collect car brochures also?

I have a small collection. First year for Viper and stuff like that.

I also have a bunch of '80's JDM brochures that I got from a penpal. One Honda brochure has Micheal Fox on the cover.

I also have a brochure for the '67 Coupe De Ville I used to own.

But latley, they've become more clutter I don't need!! :annoyed:

I have TONS of magazine articles, magazine ads, magazine reviews, original brochures, hardcover books, and VHS videos for the Q45. I also have one article and a 1988 brochure for the Mazda 929. I'd like to start a small collection for the 92+ Eldo.

I used to but I have had to move a lot and those things really end up wieghing a lot. I started tossing stuff that had no sentimental value a few years back. I still have a few laying around here and there, but I kind of gave up.

Somewhere in my house is a box full of them. Whenever the autoshow comes around, the box gets a bit fuller. The more common makes for the past 5 years, Cadillac ones since the late 80s, Lincoln ones from the same time frame. Whenever the Lincoln went in for service, straight to the brochure area I would go and grab anything interesting.

I have a collection, but it wasn't intentional. They're just so pretty I didn't want to throw them away.

I have one for the 1987 Acura Legend I used to own. The brochure is in pristine condition and even though the body style is a little dated, looking at the brochure I'd love to have a new one just like it right now!

I also have a couple for the 2000 Accord and Prelude. Most of the collection now is 2004-2005 SUV's. The Infiniti FX brochure is one of the best I've ever seen. They guarded those with their lives, but I managed to get one after I took a test-drive.

Personally, I think the mid nineties GM brochures are great. I have the 1995 Buick Full Line brochure, and it covers all the models, and gives like 6-10 pages to each model. It around 100 pages on good high quality, glossy paper with high quality color images. My 1993 Oldsmobile full line brochure is the same too.
My '92 Cadillac Full Line brochure is excellent also. It must be 10x10 with about 80 pages, about 8-10 pages devoted to each model, with fold out pictures.
Its wierd how GM didnt make brochures about a single model until recently, will Ford made brochures for individual models and full lines for quite a while.

I just remembered, somewhere my father has some concept car brochures from GM in the late 40's and early 50's. Unbelievable. Probably worth a mint on eBay.

I have one of the largest collections (not for sale/profit) held in America. It begins in 1958 and comes forward to 2005. It takes up 45 filing cabinets. It's 98% domestic. Also some color & trim books and facts books. It's been appraised t be worth around $70,000.

She thinks that it's absolutely terrific, and has used her femininity & charm to squeeze a few very hard to get Ultra Super Duper Cadillac & Lincoln brochures, and most recently the 2006 Corvette for me who waits outta sight in the Town Car.

I~LUV~Caddys8792

You use her to get car brochures? Cool, did you get a lot of the brochures by going to the dealers and getting them new, or did you buy some?

Helluva woman you've got there, Sandy.

I used to collect all the car brochures when I'd go to the new car show, but they gathered dust and I eventually tossed most of them the last time I moved. I still have a few for the cars I own or did own. I managed to get the the full-size line and complete Chevrolet line for 1964 (it even has a meadow green Impala Sport Sedan like my Betty), plus the custom features accessories brochure for 64 on eBay. I also got a '91 Cadillac brochure on eBay.

I have several full-page spread ads for the '64 Impala that I've laminated to display at car shows. The ads and brochures are posted on my Web site (http://www.gdwriter.com/ads.html) in .jpg and .pdf formats.

The Old Car Manual Project (http://storm.tocmp.com/) is a nice Web site that has lots of classic car ads and brochures. Its Cadillac selection is pretty good.

A 1974 Imperial LeBaron 2-Dr Hardtop with Sun Roof in Barracuda Red
A 1986 Lincoln Mark VI (6) in Playboy Pink (4-Sale on E-bay last week)
and the Sixty Special in regular paint with specially made on assembly line interior, mating white interior with black accents. (Not an offered combo) !

I would do something like that

But alot of dealerships and manufacturers point blank refuse to build special order cars these days. Anythign special about your current Town Car?

The Lincoln Mark 7 Sounds great!!

Sandy
12-10-05, 08:43 AM
Enter this number
4591929986
to see my 1986 Mark VII - which has just finished on E-Bay, as the present owner is trying to sell it (the wrong way) ~ but, whatever......
There are over 30 pictures of it Plus a statement from ME ! :bouncy:

No, there really isn't anything "Special" about my Town Car, other than it was a Mid-Year special edition, called "LIMITED" and only 1,110 were made, and only 370 in my color, which allthough my color continued in 2004 & 2005 & 2006 ~ ~ IN 2003 it was exclusive to the LIMITED,so for 2003 it's 1 of 370. (Granted a very high number for me!)

It's about impossible to do anything these days, with the computer networks all in place, everything is computerized and computerazation leaves zero room for "exceptions" as you know. IMO my '93 Caddy 60 Special to me, is the most impressive. While the Mark is the most eye catching in its pink paint, when you think about it....it's really ONLY paint! However, the Caddy was in fact custom designed by me, and working together with the Orion, Michigan plant, in concert with the plant Manager and the head of Cadillac distribution as well as the person who monitors the computer in-house AT Orion, we created something that in fact #1 didn't exist & #2 was not availble and for which there was in essence, no code for! Now, That's pretty special. No, it will not reach out & grab you like "PINKIN" will, but again, remember, it's only paint. Granted, it was factory done in then a 27 year old color, but again remember, it was pretty much PRE-Computer in 1986. Tricks & stunts could be preformed back then ! :bouncy: :bouncy:

Sandy, I almost bought a very rare car for very cheap ($1700)
It was a 1987 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight Regency Brougham Coupe, Grande Edition.
It had 92k miles, was white with white leather/beige suede seats. It was in really good condition. And he was only asking $1700 for it, because it wasn't technically "collectible" yet. I guess he called Oldsmobile and gave them the VIN number and they said they only made like 307 of them that year! Plus it was the last year the Ninety Eight was available as a coupe. But It sold the day after I called about it, so I forgot about that. :(

Sandy
12-10-05, 11:10 AM
I am EXTREMELY familiar with the Grande Edition Olds Ninety Eight Regency Brougham Coupe & Sedan. They were drop dead georgous and rarer than Democrats at a Republican Convention! I too, alomost bought one, new, but if I recall (sometimes hard) I had just taken delivery of my Imperial LeBaron Crown Coupe` in 1976, so I was set for a while. It's been said that the Grande Ed (2 years it was offered) wore the 2nd most expensive interior ever put into a GM car. (1st was, of course, the Fleetwood Talisman of 74 75 & 76.)

Ok, thats it, next new car I buy will be special. I will demand it. I want my chance to own something that I know nobody else on the planet has.

BTW Sandy, that Mark is NICE, I would actually drive that. Thanks for letting us know about it, I always liked the 7s, they had a modern look to them despite being from the 80s, they would fit in well in the 90s.

Nope. It was leather & Lamb's Wood TRIM. It was similiar in concept, but different than the Toro Caliente (also a great piece!!)

Mccombie, I assume you looked at it? Yes ? Notice the guy's house is also pink concrete ? He has a bunch of stuff incl. a Z06 from 2 years ago, a Lexus GS430, My Mark 7 and something else, expensive, but no my taste, I forget what. As you can see, that car ~ "PINKIN" ~ is still like new! The mileage of 18,000 is correct. You'd look great in it! He can ship it :histeric:

Yeah i noticed the house, I actually thought a teenage girl with a rich dad might live there :eek:

I wouldnt take a Lexus, i dont like them, and as for Corvettes......

LOL, I really want a Mark 5 at the moment, Im sure it will pass, and I'm certain Claire wouldnt want me to bring another car home.

18,000 miles? Thats, shocking! I wish I could find a Blue/Blue V with tan leather with those kinda miles!!

I found out what these were after seeing thenm in a music video fro eyars, and now I want one.

Toronado Caliente came with Leather & Lamb's WOOL trim, and all leather was the optional (omitting the Lamb's Wool).

The 98 Regency GRANDE` 2 & 4 Doors came with all leather interior, Standard.

12-10-05, 05:33 PM
oh ok, I'm almost positive that the '87 Grande I looked at had seats that were suede and leather. I asked the owner about that too, and he said it was suede and leather.

Sandy
12-10-05, 05:59 PM
Fresh back from the brochure room ! Looked it up. YES, Suede AND Leather....(But wait...isn't suede LEATHER?) ~ Whatever, it was suede & leather, see anything about color? Brochure says only available in Camel Tan.

I dont know actually. They think I'm wasting my life reading these or something. I've always loved cars, I've been collecting brochures since I was 5. They also said something about me wasting the company's money by having them mail me these.

No disrespect but your parents are a little crazy. Companies roll promotional material in to the cost of a car. It's not a waste. Do they think that people just come to a dealer to see what the new cars are about? And reading anything at 5 years of age should be encouraged, not frowned upon. Besides, you were building a collection of future collectibles. Sounds nuts to me but again, no dispespect intended.

Yeah I know, no offence taken :)
I think my mom thought that if I had all these, I would have no need for friends. Thats just crazy, I remember back when I was in elementary school, I would sit and read these all the time, because I had noone to hang out with. But now, I have a lot of friends I hang out with regularly, and I read these before I'm going to bed or when I'm bored or whatever.

I have a comic collector's box (about 3' long) filled with brochures and cardstock giveaways from the last 5 or so years of NAIAS. Also in there are my Cadillac model line brochures (the common ones from the dealer), I have all of them from 2002 to 2005.
I also have the spiral bound brochures that the dealerships get to inform their salespeople about new models for the first year of the CTS and STS. These are very cool and I will probably scan and post them someday. They detail to the dealership how the cars compare to the competition and such things...
