Automobilia, and other car-related collectables.

Pratts High Test fuel
Since its debut in late 2001, Old Classic Car has grown in many different directions, usually in a slightly haphazard fashion, as new ideas spring to mind and older ones get swiftly forgotten. A quick look at the homepage will present a list of car articles, on everything from running, choosing and driving old cars, through to some buyer's guides, large galleries containing images old and new, vintage road signs, toy cars, illustrated childrens book covers, classifieds, my own classics, your classics, and on and on.

As a collector of all motor-related memorabilia, many items in my own automobilia collection don't really fit in any particular section, hence this new corner of the website, which will grow to contain all manner of snippets, ephemera, old adverts, book mentions, and any oddities that I come across in my travels. Everything on this page has been grouped into one of three categories: 1. Make or Model Specific, 2. Old Garage, Business & Motor Factor billheads and invoices, and 3. Miscellaneous automobilia.

Other collectables on oldclassiccar
If you collect this kind of thing too, have a look at the free-to-list Automobilia adverts section. The Motoring Games section may be of interest too. A section added in 2007 covers the collecting of cigarette & trading cards from the 30s to the 60s, and if old comic postcards are your thing, check out these car-related humorous postcards. Anyone interested in old oil and petrol company memorabilia, may find this article on petroliana of interest. Finally, a new section featuring some of my own motoring gadgets is gradually being added to the site.
