We've been working behind the scenes updating pages in preparation for our upcoming site redesign. Additionally, we've provided new information on interior trim codes for the 1964 Lincoln Continental, including two special order interiors that we've documented. See the updated data

There's also expanded information on production codes, accessory group codes, and pricing reflecting early and late production for Cadillac options offered on some of the 1970s cars. Included are the standard models, as well as Eldorado and Seville, and there's more coming soon.

We'd like to announce two changes to this page. The Cool Car Tools feature at the bottom of this page has been removed. The HTML code that was used to create the IIFrame no longer validated to current standards, and we're looking at doing something different in the future.

We've added a QR Code to this page, as well as our Home and Recent Updates pages. This allows QR-enabled smartphones to bookmark the page by scanning the QR image. The link generated can also be sent to friends. This is new technology, and we're testing it on these pages for the time being, and might roll it out on all pages during our upcoming site redesign.

Chrysler's Turbine: The Rise and Fall of America's Coolest Car by Steve Lehto

We've revived our Automotive Book of the Month page, and our featured book this month chronicles the history of the Chrysler Turbine, from its development to the eventual destruction of most of the cars built, the majority of which were loaned to families to drive for a month. Included are interviews with many of the people who drove them. It's a fascinating look at an idea that if it had been allowed to develop further, may have changed the way America drives today.

Our Road Map and Road Map - 2 pages have been rebuilt using a three column format. The Road Map page is our site map of major pages on the site and classic car links. This is the page to check if you're looking for data on a particular car, i.e., 1975 Imperial Exterior Paint Colors, or 1957 Ford Thunderbird Production Numbers and Specifications, or for major site pages such as the AM Blog, Recent Updates, or Main Contents.

Road Map - 2 is a listing of everything else on the site, such as articles, tech tips, classic car parts auctions, etc. We will reorganize them again down the road, and split them into several different pages, eventually listing all General Motors classics on one page, Ford cars on another, and articles on yet another, etc.

They are an improvement over what we had, but they still aren't where we want them to be. At any rate, we hope this update will make it easier for you to find what you're looking for on the site.

New Navigation Menu
You may have noticed changes to our navigation menu that appears at the top of some of our pages. This is a new menu, and we hope it will prove to be more stable than the one it replaces. It has been tested in the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome, and appears to function as intended in those browsers.

You will likely see some shuffling around of links in this menu over the next few weeks as we organize it better. We hope you like the new menu.
