If you have a collection of photos of similar quality to what you have seen on The Old Motor and would like to share or sell them to us, we would be interested in to discussing this with you. Send us a comment with your contact info (it will not be posted) and we will be in touch with you shortly. We do not give out an email address because of spam problems.
*We do not sell photos at all*, as we just do not have the time and we are not set up to be able to print them. We also do not have the time to email copies.
Types of photos we are looking for: Any good quality pre-1966 photo of a car, truck, motorcycle or a vehicle related business. We only are interested in photos taken back in the period that the vehicle was initially used in.
If you are part of a museum, club or archive with a large quantity of good photos, we would like to talk with you about helping your organization. In exchange for photographs that we can use, we will work hard to give your club or historical society website, exposure to the large numbers of visitors that we get daily. We can also work with historical societies to help them identify their automobile photographs, by the use of our combined knowledge and that of our viewers. Send us a comment and we can discuss the details.
If your photos are blurry, out of focus or damaged or faded out we will not be interested in them, or use them as the will not show up well on the web.
We also do not use photos of cars once they have been in collectors hands or at car meets, unless they are profession quality contemporary photos. Take at look at the site and you can quickly see what we use and the level of quality we need.
Sending us photos: I you have a good quality scanner by all means use it and scan your photo at a high resolution. You can then send it to us as an attachment in an email, or if you have a large quantity they can be sent in a zip file.
