Mr.Smith has the archives. There is no website. If you were looking for something contact him and arrangements can be made

Who is Mr. Smith and from where? That Archives came up from somewhere when I was on The PCS facebook site? Arrangements? I'm not looking to arrange a thing, I just was hoping to look at archive photos of professional cars. I would think other members would also enjoy looking.

I created a searchable database that included the title of every article starting from the first volume. It also included scans of the cover, middle spread and back cover of every issue. I presented three (3) copies of this database on CD-ROM to Brady Smith for his feedback and I never heard a word. I thought my year-long project would be quite valuable to the club but I guessed wrong. Jim

Default Professional Car Archive

I'm sorry but I miss understood! I was thinking of an Archive that had photos of procars from each year like what The Northland Chapter had! Dah, didn't think it was of The Professional Car magazine! Old age is setting in! I have been lucky enough to have a copy of every newsletter that was ever printed and enjoy looking at the back issues.

May I ask what kind of scanner you employed to do the job?
I'm presently looking into "Book" scanners in the hope of redicing a ton of paper to pdf or even jpeg and honestly getting crossed eyeballs trying to understand what I'm reading.

Jim, I'm sure it was but depending on the what kind of day it was or week it was when it came in may be the reason for not getting back to you. but like everything else archives means different things. the club archives has dealer fliers correspondence and paper stuff associated with our style of pro cars. it was moved to publications as a valued source for them of related information.

if one was looking for pictures of cars the north land site or Peter's site up in Canada is a great reference source
