Does anyone have access to the May and June 1934 issues of Autotrimmer and Painter? Autobody and the reconditioned car - Google Books

I would try the folks at the Stanford University Library.

Good luck!

THANKS for this info! I have a huge pile of PopSci and PopMech from the 90s and on, and they're just taking up space. Recently I recycled all of my old Model Railroaders, and now that I know Google Books has PopMech and PopSci, they can go in the hopper, too, freeing up more space in the house. And it's so much easier to find articles via Google Books - a quick search on some keywords produced articles much, much faster than I'd ever find them via flipping through...

It's wonderful because whenever I see these old mags at the antique store I'm tempted, but lack of space stops me. Having them online and easy to search is so much better. Every time this thread comes up I end up wasting an afternoon browsing through these old mags.

I've had this site bookmarked for a while. http://www.mikenchell.com/VintagePla...tageplans.html
No Airstream stuff but an interesting look at how the backyard builders put their creations together.

Tom.
