I have been following this forum here on Classic & Sportscar for quite some time and found something that you will want to look in on. It is called The Old Motor and it is one of the nicest photo websites I have ever seen. It has many thousands of photos that are all searchable and in categories and it is a big asset to all of us. Follow this link and check it out. theoldmotor.com

Yup, a cracking archive - thanks.

I'd really love to find a quality photo-driven book covering British roadside / garage / filling station / showroom life up to, say, the 1970s, but I don't think such a thing exists!

In fact, every day there are wonders all available to us. A sunrise or sunset, over a tree line or a horizon where a lake or sea meets the sky; the sky itself, whether cloudy, clear or full of stars; a variety of landscapes, whether of trees, mountains or flowers; a reflection off a smooth water’s surface.-Dan Sciscente

Paul and Judy Andrews 1928 Mercedes-Benz 680S Saoutchik Torpedo is seen here being driven by Paul Russell on the Pebble Beach tour last Thursday on its way to Big Sur. Three days later as most of you know by now, this masterpiece went on to win Best of Show at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance. Look for a full story in the future here on The Old Motor from Paul Russell and Company the people that restored it .

To get this incredible photographer Pawel Litwinski climbed high on the hill overlooking this bridge. Two days later on Saturday when we were doing a photo shoot on the 18th fairway at Pebble Beach, he was suffering with poison oak that he was exposed to get this very shot.

More details and 1000's of the best old car photos @ The Old Motor.
