Is anyone beside me interested in having the club issue an update of the "Vintage Ford on CD" to include years since 2000? I AM NOT volunteering since I have no technical knowledge or skill, but someone did the Vol 1-Vol 35 set almost 15 years ago, so there must be some folks who could do it. While I have those, I would like to have the past 10-14 (or fifteen by the time it would come out) years.

Charles I think that would be a great idea if someone could do the job. I have them up to the 2000 year, I think that was by Bruce, I think.

If it cam=n be done for a reasonable price.

Yes, I would also be interested in an update, as it allows you to quickly search for key words. Also once loaded on the computer they don't get lost in the stack.

I would volunteer to help scan them. But I would need some guidance on what format etc. They were previously scanned using optical character recognition (OCR) so the words can be searched. They are not just an image.

And they may not even need to be scanned. Perhaps some of them were sent to the printer in a digital format to begin with? If so they may be usable as is, or more likely would need to be reformatted some for home use.

For Scott -- I would suggest you contact the Horseless Carriage Foundation at: http://www.hcfi.org/ and ask them if they have any sets and/or the missing issues you need. In the past they have had many items for sale to help support the foundation. And from memory several of those items have been sets of the "Vintage Ford" as well as the "Model T Times" as well as individual issues.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

I sure hope that OCR programs have improved - the last time I used one, I spent as much time correcting its errors as I would have spent retyping the text in the first place!

Count me in as interested in an updated set. Can't see spending that kind of money on a set that,s missing the last 15 years.

Seems the best way to get digital copies would be from the original printer files. I would think in this era they would be digital already. How does Jay send them from Indiana to Bakersfield to be printed?
