Grab a scanner Carl. Looks like you could certainly use one.
$100 or so for a nice flatbed with excellent software. I just picked up a Epson V200 from Tiger Direct.

I sure plan to. Thanks for the tip on one to buy. I like to hear from someone who has one and is happy with it.

You think my post count is high now? Wait till I have a scanner.......

Carl,

Did you get a scanner? I'm looking to find out what kind of accessories the '65 Full Size had available. Is this shown?

Yes, I do have a scanner now. I will check the 65 book. It does all Canadian GM cars, not exclusive to Pontiacs.

by any chance is there the accessories for 65 Beaumont Acadian? I've been shown a 64, and it's pretty darn cool. But havent seen a 65. I have a typed sheet from the dealer I'll upload.

I have the 65 accessory book but it's 50 pages. I have to make up my mind whether I should take the time to scan it or copy and email to you.

What would you prefer?

interesting seeing the 65 vacuum guage.  I took one out of a car about 30 years ago, and mis-placed it somewhere along the way.  I figured it was from a 65, as the face was round, and 66 faces were more square. A local club member has a 65, but no vacuum guage.  I told him I once had one, and he thougth I was off my rocker.

wow.. 50 pages.. Can you scan the cover for me?  Then if it is what I'm looking for I know what it looks like at the next swap meet.   And I'd gladly pay you for making a copy of the 50 pages for me.

as always.. Thank you very much.

This is it. Honestly, I've never seen another one. I'm sure they're out there. Good luck! I hope you can find one. If not and you need info, you know where I am.

Hi Carl.  Bob Crocker here with the 58 Parisienne.  Would you be kind enough to let me know what the 58 Accessory Catalogue has in it!  Also when you do get your scanner would it be possible to scan the catalogue?  I would be pleased to pay you for your time, etc.  Thanks from Bob.

Hi Carl,

If you buy a scanner get one that allows you to make a PDF document. Then you can post the electronic copies on the site and save a bunch of printing costs.

We do now have a scanner, but I can't do the PDF thing with it that I know of.

I would love to copy these and put them into photobucket for all to see. However, my calculations tell me that each book would likely take about an hour and a half.

I am toying with the idea of doing one a week or something. I am NOT looking to make money off of this, and would love to share the info with everyone. However, I am not sure how to do it and keep everyone (my family!) happy too!

This is not to tease you Bob. Here is what the cover looks like at least.

Kelly (and everyone else interested for that matter)

I just scanned the 65 book and opened a new photobucket account. It's all in there. If this link doesn't work for you, go to www.photobucket.com, gmaccessories is the user name, and so is the password. Then click on 65 and you should see all the pages there.

That took almost an hour! I will try to do more of them for the rest of you who have asked, but it will be some time before I get at them.

Yes, as a matter of fact I do Todd.

And if anyone is deserving of a favor, you most certainly are! I'll see about later tonight. As stated in a different thread, it's time to get out to the garage and get some work done right now though.

You're most welcome. Ain't that neat? I've had those books for at least 10, maybe 15 years and always wanted to share the info but was unsure how to. I just hope someone doesn't get the bright idea to copy them and charge for the info.

Hey, I want to suggest something.

I had an offer from at least a couple of people who wanted to pay me for this. If anyone is willing, I don't want money but have an idea. Todd won't accept donations, but that doesn't mean you can't spend some (extra) money at the Canadian Poncho store buying his mugs, shirts etc........
