I bought the whole collection of SIA magazine...more will follow!
(BTW: The title should be changed, the puzzle car was called simpy 'Custom' and was made in 1935)

I'm happy to give you more reasons for sticking around!
I found a lot of juicy cars and once I'm settled (3\4 months) I'll have more time to share my sources.

So far from #1 till #156 plus other 16 numbers from #157 to #201.
I'm planning to buy the remaining issues when I'll have time and when I'll find them at a convenient price.
They are incredible, I'll post more pics and scans of many cars already featured here and new puzzles.
I'm moving into a new home where I'll keep a scanner beside my books always ready (now it's in another room and not connected) and I'll start to scan pages instead of taking pictures (if I do not risk to damage the books).
More to follow!

I've benn lucky and patient.
I'm still looking for some issues of the 90s, but there are plenty out there...I'll wait for the right occasion (there are some good lots at 20$ but I'm waiting for a reply from the seller).
I found the early numbers from some reliable sellers from ebay and paid between 0,99 and 6$ each.

Careful! Some easy points for me, maybe (I kept about 40 issues from the time I was a suscriber).

Here is an image of the 1934 Brown Car.

This is an interesting group of cars.  Is it possible to get the images restored, with the correct names applied?

Here is something about them I've just seen. The Colerman cars were named from the color they were painted: Maroon, White, Brown. See Paul Jaray reply #22

I guess I didn't read the Old Motor article close enough last year.  The car I posted is of course, the 1935 Custom.  And the puzzle car is probably the Brown Car
