New Membership Platform: Membee

The ACD Club is rolling out a new online membership system. All ACD Club Members should have receivied an email with enrollment instructions. You will use your email address as your login, and select a new password. This account will be used to renew your membership, update membership information, and make changes to your membership record.


This account is NOT THE SAME as your current account which you use to access the ACD Website Forums. Please continue to log into the Forums with the same username and password as you have always used. In the future we may consolidate the two accounts.

Is it possible to get the forum expanded for "factory" photos ?

There is a lot of discussion on the Cord forum page about authenticity and my reply was: I do think this Forum site should add a section for original (period and factory/dealer/publicity) photographs and there probably needs to be an Early Auburn section, a 1931-1933 Auburn section, a 1934-1935 Auburn section, Cord L-29 section, 810-812 section, and ... I would gladly moderate such.

I would support this idea. Anything to take the guess work out of restoring to correct factory applications.

Under the Main Category called "THE JIM BROCKMAN COLLECTION", there are several Archive sub-forums for old pictures. It's broken up by Auburn, Cord, etc, not the smaller sections like you're requesting, but they do already seem to include this type of content (ie, old factory photos) so it seems appropriate to add them there for now. We definitely appreciate those photos!

Thanks,
Joe

Future Cord owner.

Joe, I understand completely, but they are a mix of photos and dedicated to Jim's life in collecting photos over decades - I do not want to muck in the waters of his legacy. I would like to see a photo section dedicated to purely Factory photos related to publicity matched to period photos of relatively new cars - that is where our historical accuracy will come from.

A funny story, but when we bought the 1931 Cadillac a small handful of "rebels' said to go on a quest for seeing other unrestored cars - which we did (and hard to find via lack of internet and ...). However, that was the 1970's and "rule of thumb" at time was to match your car to the best restored car. Well, let's just say a lot of authenticity in manufacturing was lost over time.

Joe, that is about in same place I would put the new sections (at the bottom of the page in near vicinity).

There is a Photo Gallery forum for posting pictures. I would also suggest posting pictures like this in our Facebook Group --- that is a better venue for pictures.
