Welcome to the Autopaedia Gallery!

All photos which are presented here were taken by me. File naming convention is as follows:

"Manufacturer Model (optional generation/series) Years_of_model_prod (Year_of_unit_prod Version)"
Years of model production is a period when this particular model was produced.
Year of unit production I try to define based on car details or, when it is possible, on information from the owner. During events cars have often information sheets behind a windscreen.
