WHY do you place "copyrights" over the picture of the actual body?

 

What are you afraid of, someone might actually have a clean picture of this body?

David,
it happens all the time, and businesses are profiting financially from stealing pictures. Ever been on Pinterest? I know of one fellow who has consistently stolen our own pictures to create his own website, on which he collects advertising money.  Is that a good thing?

The museum's owner insists on making clear that all published pictures are copyright material. That is why it's posted across the pictures.

I find it fascinating that this company "SAVAGE" existed and no one remembers anything about them!

 

I suppose after all these years it is difficult to find any information about them, like who was the principals of Savage, and what other bodies did they make if any?  

 

Being a So. California company you would think that someone remembers them, but it is sad that they are now completely forgotten.

 

Not even a sub-topic under Vintage Bodies here at the blog. It is not so much what they made, but that they existed at all back in the day!

David,
all this took place over 50 years ago... and virtually all the people involved are either white dust in a pot or in old folks homes. Information gathering is left to people like us today, because no one cares about things they do not know anything about, what should they?
There were likely over 100 vacuum formed body businesses in the 1960s, many so obscure today that while their name is known from old stories and witness testimony, no actual product survived.
The LASCM has a few "Savage" bodies, but guess what, they are from two different companies with the same name, to complicate matters...
We do not know who manufactures many of the bodies in the museum because they are uncommon and came without a label or a box. The fiberglass examples we have are often misappropriated by the sellers to the wrong manufacturer... nothing is easy.
We do the best we can to set an accurate history, but unsolved mysteries about product identification will likely remain forever.
The same applies to numerous, extremely well built "pro" chassis that are not "signed", and thus will remain anonymous, again likely forever.

Is any of this covered in your new book?
