Old Woodies is a site for enthusiasts of wood-bodied cars and trucks. Here you can learn all about them, and of course you can check out images of them.
The site is divided into the following sections: Search, Features, Gallery, Shop Talk, Calendar, and Resources.
Search — Obviously this is a search engine. It has two search options. Easy Search, where you can just type in what you are looking for, and the Advanced Search, where you can fill in the search fields with specific details. Great search engine!
Features — Here you will find the Featured Stories. Learn the history of Old Woodies, explore different models, and read about Old Woodies that went wrong. Great information in this section! I loved the Early Woodie History section because there are a couple of great pencil drawings. Could you imagine driving a car that looked like a boat on wheels?
Gallery — The gallery on this site is not only huge but extraordinarily well organized. Choose what gallery you’d like to view (I loved the Wicker Woodies, Weird Woodies, and the Old Ad’s.) and then you’ll notice that you can view the cars by year, or it will just be a great bunch of pictures. These pictures also come with incredible details.
Shop Talk — Get expert advice on the topics here, or if you are an Old Woodie expert maybe you could share your knowledge. A lot of the articles seem to be about repairing, or re-fabricating the Old Woodies of the past.
Calendar — Here you will find scheduled Old Woodie events around the country.
Resources — this section is devoted to “how to fix, repair, and enjoy your woodie,” and is mainly a knowledge base for the application of those things. So if you have an Old Woodie that needs some fixing up check this section out.
I love sites that are dedicated to keeping the past alive—these cars, vans, trucks, and even motor homes, were a huge part of automotive history. Check them out!
