Got some Hot Rod Magazines- gonna scan them in.

If you have magazine scans put them here! maybe mod can sticky later 

Try to stick to PDF or JPG I guess.

 

Nov 56 Hot Rod- Revolutionary 57 Plymouth 

They discuss the frame, torsion bar, suspension.

I previously started a thread for D-500 magazine articles but I was the only one who contributed:

http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=64334&...

I also started a 56 Plymouth Fury thread with a HOT ROD article. That one got a bit more response:

http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=64706&...

So good luck with this thread.

Pdfs are awkward. Strongly suggest scanning to .jpg (<250 kB per page) is the way to go for this forum.

I think pdfs are readable, and don't kill bandwidth. At their size you can read if you want. And this thread would be annoying with 1000 pictures

Okay. Not 100% convinced but I will try it your way, i.e. jpg of the magazine cover followed by pdfs of the pages in the article (I don't like the quality of the pdf scan at 100 dpi =< 250 kB, jpgs were better).

Should I continue? I also have some competitor reviews? Maybe I should just put up the basics?

57 Ford was utter s**te... couldn't turn the car at any form of speed... would spin out, panel fitment was horrible... and they were trying to be nice.
57 Studebaker hawk had a similar issue, it was failed geometry in the front suspension. would bottom out when you turned

By all means continue. Good reading and good future reference. We should start a brochure & Ad thread too, but maybe make separate threads for each make & year.

I got this magazine the other day. Still available from sources like eBay or Amazon if not the magazine's publisher itself. Beware that on eBay people sell just the article (cut from the magazine), often for more money than you can actually buy the whole magazine, if you look a little harder. Beware. Buy the magazine when you can.

Sorry about the quality 150 dpi was too big for the <250 kB limit so I had to use 100 dpi.

Anyway:

Again, I do NOT want to be the only one posting in this thread but in lieu of others *AND* the fact that the mail just brought me some back issues from Hemmings, I will post this from March 2010.

Your not the only one, I have a HUGE backlog of scanning This is Motor Lifes 3000 mile travel update on the 59 Sport Fury with a golden commando.

I am also starting to detect these "car magazine" guys dont want to trash the vehicles to much in their articles... because they wanted to get more test cars

Hot rod seemed to be a bit more critical because they didnt review alot of cars.  Mostly customs and stuff. A custom chrysler was SUPER rare... Looking through a couple years and there wasnt really one custom

mopar... Mostly chevys and fords.  I guess that makes sense, dont want to ruin a nice FWL that you cant improve on much, trash a common car like a chevy that no one cares about ...

Have you tried clicking on the scroll bar on the right side of the frame and pulling down? Literally takes 2 seconds top to bottom. No biggy.

I tried your pdf method but frankly the pdf scans that you have posted are very poor quality at <250 kB per page and loading them is a pain in the but. Scanning to jpg to <250 kB results in a much better image.

I don't know why you are worried about server issues. There are many long treads with many photos, e.g. the 281 page@50 posts/page Old Photos/Postcards thread, that have to load a bunch of photos (one page at time) whenever you click on the thread and nobody is complaining about it. (That I know of).

Try the click and drag method of "scrolling" (in this case "pulling"/dragging) through the various posts. I think once you do that you will see why I think the issue is moot.

YMMV

Agree with "pictures". Bild? viele Bilden?

As for contemporary, more people need to step up and contribute. Somebody will have to use lists like I put together from Collectible Automobile (or Hemmings or ??) and find the magazines and scan the photos (<250 kB = about 100 dpi or 150 dpi and then processed down to 65% (or so)) and then up load them.

I now have 9 issues of Dodge News Vol.20. No. 10 and 11, and Vol. 21 No.s 2 through 9, related to the 56 Dodge (missing a few, i.e. Vol. 20 No. 12 and Vol. 21 No.1 and No.10). In terms of back covers that I have and haven't posted, I think I am missing Vol.21 No.5 and need to repeat 21/6 and 21/8 because what I posted before was from the internet.

So here are those 3 (if you have Vol 20 No. 12 ad Vol. 21/1 and 21/10 please contact me or post them up).

Going through my magazine holdings, checking them against another FL forum members and discovered that I have this but have not shared it with the forum.

I wish others would share some of what they have re: FL magazine articles.

So here it is, Uncle Tom's review:

Thought I better share this one. One of five magazines I got today. The advert was actually on the inside of the front cover, not after the article. Interesting marketing.

Interesting that on pg. 40 above, in the first paragraph, they suggest that there were 16 body styles for the 56 Dodge.

I only count 7: 2dr sedan, 4 dr sedan, 2 dr hardtop, 4 dr hardtop, convertible, 2 door wagon and 4 door wagon.

Even if you add in the three trim levels, I still only count 14 as per this January 56 MotorLife magazine article:
