    If you know the names of the owners, or if you know how to contact them, or if you have any kind of info on these cars (other than the make & year), please let me know! I may use these photos (or other photos of the same cars) in the magazine and need some info so that I can write well informed captions.

    Thanks,

    Jerry

    Thanks so much for all the info. And thanks also to tierod who also sent me loads of names by MP.

    Thanks to you guys, I've found all the info I need on cars #2, 3, 6, 8, 9.

    I've got the names of the owners of cars #4, 5, 7 but more info on these 3 cars would be great (or contact information).

    I've still got no info on #1 and 10.
