Open Reference Questions
Resources
Most libraries have a Reference Desk, which Wikipedia defines as "a public service counter where professional librarians provide library users with direction to library materials, advice on library collections and services, and expertise on multiple kinds of information from multiple sources."  This is often the point of contact for access to the reference section, a collection of library materials that can't be removed from the library so that they will always be available to library patrons.

The Crittenden Automotive Library is online, and through the wonders of technology a large collection of automotive books, in PDF format, can be copied millions of times over and are always available to everyone around the world.  There is, however, a large collection of books, magazines, and other materials in the personal collection of Library owner Bill Crittenden that can't be posted or shared online due to copyright.  We can, however, research answers to questions and post them online, since simple facts can't be copyrighted.

To ask a question, just e-mail admin@carsandracingstuff.com with "Reference Desk" in the subject line and we'll see what we can find.  Please note that we can not send copies of copyrighted information to you.

Open Reference Questions

The following are open questions that have been asked of the Reference Desk, organized by year and vehicle model and subject. If you have anything to contribute to answering them, e-mail admin@carsandracingstuff.com and I'll add it to the post.
