Cant say you see these everyday...

Me and a buddy of mine were out and about in Bandera, Texas looking at a Blazer. That was a flop so we went to the local swap meet and i just had to buy these items i found. Still deciding what i want to do with them, figured it would at least be sweet man-cave art or something to that effect.

Tell me what you guys think, or do you know anything about them. From what i gathered they are 1913 blueprints from GM that are for trucks, they have various models written on each one but no specifics.

I took it to the antique shop in town and the guy confirmed they are real due to the owner that he bought other products off of and said that anything that guy had was real. I am thinking about getting them authenticated but not really sure on what the value is either. Nevertheless, if they aren't real, i figured i bought some sweet wall art to hang up.

These are the last 3 that weren't framed, you can see the damage of the air really got to these and mold seemed to got to them as well.

Very nice, Tom! I would think they are authentic the way they look. It would be nice to get a high quality scan of them some day to put in the AHPS Library at Wild About Cars. A nice "almost lost" item to preserve.

That will be a challenge. I presume they are larger than 11" x 17"? Shoot me an email and we'll see what we can do. [email protected]
