Not sure if there is a thread on this that already exists or not but I wanted to share a few websites with everyone and hope this turned into a pinned thread that everyone can share links to automotive websites.

Dean's Garage This is a website dedicated to the history of automotive design and the designers that created them.

Ate Up with Motor You could spend the rest of your life on this historical webpage that covers most cars and manufactures from all over the world. These articles are VERY substantial and even have bibliographies at the end! (something like that impresses me since it's fact not rumor)

Driven to Write Honestly, I have not spent that much time on this but the articles seem pretty good. I should warn everyone, I think it's from Europe, so they are a little light on American cars.

My vision with this thread is to post high quality, more obscure automotive links, not like Jalopknick or Motortrend, etc!

It's interesting to know the men and their motives in back of the products that have changed the world drastically in just the last 120 years. I like to imagine what a farm kid in the 1880's would have thought about his future. What was his favorite breed of horse, the best saddle for riding or the best draft horse's for working long hours for several years? Did he think about becoming a blacksmith? Was carpentry on a kids mind or maybe working for Studebaker founded in1852. What did those kids think 40 years later when cars were taking over. What did young dreamers imagine they could do. How odd will our world look to kids in the 2120's years if we don't destroy ourselves first? Fun stuff to ponder.
