If you truly love cars (or trucks) this program
is for you.
The mere fact that you're reading this contributor
page means that you care about cars, the car restoration hobby,
and maybe you even care about a great resource like the PartsHound
Project. We want to see PartsHound expand to the point that you
can find the smallest, tiniest, hardest to find trim on even the
most seldom seen cars. I am constantly amazed at the resourcefulness
of serious car restorers. They can comb the entire country (or
the world) to find parts for the oldest, most obscure makes of
cars. We're talking about some cars I haven't even heard of. I
don't know how they do it aside from club newsletters, but the
PartsHound project makes finding your parts more efficient.
Restorers and enthusiasts, this is where your
considerable talent and information can be put to work.
If you have access to any dealer parts software
send it in. Any old parts books, send them in. Any of your own
parts diagrams for looking up parts, send them in. We'll only
tackle vehicle makes & models for which we have factory part
number information. That means that if you want to be able to
trade your GTO parts, send in the factory part number information.
We can't put the link on the page to trade it if we don't have
the factory part number and a decent description.
We won't harm your books and we'll send them back
when we're done gleaning them for information. Why should you
risk your books for this project? If you don't, who will? Where
will we get the part numbers necessary to expand the site into
the pre-war and post-war cars? If you don't want to risk your
books send us photocopies that can be read. Don't be stingy! There
are aspiring restorers waiting for the information to come available.
If you have your own exploded views of cars and
parts group, send it in. Before we use any submitted artwork a
signed release is required that states that the artwork is your
original artwork and is not the property of any other person or
company. This release legally protects the PartsHound project
if a manufacturer or other party challenges the origin of the
artwork as a violation of copyright.
If your submission is useful (something we don't
already have) we'll compensate you with commission-free trading
for a period of time.. The periods can be years, decades, or even
lifetime for members who provide substantial contributions.
