Detroit Auto Show: vintage photo archives

Before the days of saturated bloggers filling up the press days of modern Auto Shows, we often forget that only serious journalists were really taking photos and writing up the major international auto shows.  Before digital cameras, blogging, websites, etc—–these photos were mainly issued in newspapers and magazines, and hence we don’t see a lot of vintage auto show photos.

Car & Driver have posted a huge archive of Detroit Auto Show photos and they really are fantastic.  They range through many years, and show how cars were displayed in a different time!  Very cool.   Make sure you check out the link at the bottom to look through the entire archive they have up on their site:

    How may I get a hold of someone to help in my research for any collection of photographs of the 1970 Detroit Auto show- held in Mid November 1969, at the now former Cobo hall ? Specifically looking for photographs of the exhibits, at the Detroit Auto show for the 1970 model year. Specifically GM products from #1 Oldsmobile and Pontiac and Cadillac.
