    That's pretty cool. Going through these old books, I see machines and equipment in there that I would rather have than the modern ones today. I could imagine working in a shop with walls lined up with all these machines and being able to do everything on my own. I've got an old wheel balancer that uses a light bulb and an old stick welding machine. I suppose that's a start.

    A fella can dream, can't he? :)

    Lot's of good information here and thanks for taking the time to do this. At the risk of sounding like a total dumb ass, I'd like to know how your scanning all these pages at the library. It seems like it would take forever. Any advice for us technically challenged would be much appreciated.

    Actually, I've been checking these books out and bringing them to the Mac Lab at my school which is a digital lab with Mac computers used for Graphic Design and other Art majors. The scanners in there are large enough to scan these pages and at a higher DPI. I scan mine at 800 DPI which makes them large and clear enough to read without being too large to upload to PhotoBucket.

    Having a Pro account on PhotoBucket helps quite a bit too.

    I know Volkswagens aren't generally accepted here but this is only one article in the YearBook.. The rest are pretty cool articles.

    Mods: if you feel that this shouldn't be here, PM me and let me know. I'll take these down willingly.

    I have the rest of the yearbook scanned but I'll be posting them throughout the day to spread them out a bit and move it closer to the top to let everyone see them..

    Enjoy!

    Holy cow, those are some seriously informative books! The funny car section is priceless as far as I am concerned.
