2012 Klingberg Auto Show

What better reason to finally publish a new post than to display the graphics for this year's Klingberg Vintage Motor Car Festival. This year will be the 20th annual show, which is a fund raising event for the Klingberg Children's Center

Based on the design from last year's event, the cars featured in this year's promotions are a 1960 Buick Electra, a 1935 Ford Brewster, and a 1939 Ford Woody Wagon.

In the process of researching for reference material for the illustrations, I stumbled across some internet gold. Someone has put together a site (The Old Car Manual Project) containing thousands of car manuals and brochures. I was actually giggling (what a nerd!) poking through brochures and photos. A real feast for any car lover or for someone who wants to take a stroll down memory lane. Check it out.
