This week we gained an e mail from a single of our audience, Stephen, inquiring specifically about house owners manuals for bizarre previous vehicles!

 Hey Cary,


I have a odd outdated automobile that did not arrive with an owner’s manual or any sort of facts. There is details I have discovered on line but I seriously want to have the first reserve to have in my hand. Any concepts the place there is a superior position to appear for a person?

Thank you.


Excellent problem, Stephen! This happens to be a challenge I have individually confronted lots of moments. In some cases, dependent on the actual car or truck you have, it can be a real chore to discover an owner’s handbook.

I would commence by looking up groups/golf equipment that concentration on your specific automobile possibly by Google or social media. Emailing groups can in some cases place you in the path of any person who collects owner’s manuals, or somebody could just have an concept of wherever to discover one particular!

If you sense lucky, eBay!

I come across that if your vehicle is from throughout the oceans, verify out eBay in other nations around the world! Normally, some thing will pop up, and fingers crossed the vendor will ship it above to you. If you come to feel inclined, you can also scour other automotive classifieds from all around the entire world online. Occasionally it can be a simple research, but it normally potential customers to an adventure in e-mail.

In the meantime, whilst you research for an first bodily guide, I would advise some deep diving on the internet in the manual replica division. It is not unheard of to obtain a website the place you can access PDF scanned unique manuals for your car. Though these are not able to offer you with the bodily duplicate you are looking for, I found they supply me with a excellent reference level that holds me in excess of right up until I find an primary for myself.


The very best information I can give you is never give up. With persistence, anything will inevitably pop up, and it is constantly satisfying to ultimately hold your vehicle’s primary owner’s guide in your fingers.

If you don’t head, you should e mail me a picture when you locate it. Owner’s Manuals fascinate me.

Until eventually then, greatest of luck and delighted looking!
