Your street rod or vintage '20s/.'30s/.'40s original or reproduction Detroit iron will appear "For Sale by Owner" on Streetrod Country within 24 hours of Crown Publishing Company's receiving your ad. Our automotive web sites' traffic is among the heaviest in the industry, with the current traffic count at well over 200,000 'hits' per day and climbing steadily. Surf through our four big Web sites (,, and and you'll discover why they've become so overwhelmingly popular!

Instructions for getting your classified (all text) ad to us:

For a classified (all text) ad, you may telephone, fax, mail or email your ad text to us. Be sure to include your address, telephone number(s), and email address (if you have one). All the information is provided below for the method you choose to get your ad to us. You must include payment (check, money order, or your credit card number and credit card expiration date) with your insertion order.

Instructions for getting your PHOTO ad to us:

Mail us your color photo AND your film (35mm negative strip or mounted slide); include a self-addressed & stamped return envelope, and your photo and film will be returned promptly to you. Add $12 for each additional photo you wish to display in your ad (maximum of 3 photos, totaling $59). PLEASE DO NOT SEND US YOUR OWN PRE-SCANNED IMAGE; the film scanning equipment (and imaging expertise) we possess enables us to produce a far better image of your car than the same photograph captured from a (typical) photograph on a (typical) flatbed scanner. Again, do yourself a big favor and leave the scanning and image-editing to us.

digital camera users

Use your camera's HIGHEST-QUALITY setting only (which usually means maximum-quality JPEG combined with maximum resolution). Make sure you follow our tips on motorcar photography (note: this remote hotlink opens in a new, "temporary" window; just close it to return here). Please send us your JPEG image(s) JUST AS YOU UPLOADED THEM FROM YOUR CAMERA!! Do not edit or crop them, and do not resave them. Each time you resave a JPEG-format photo, the image is reduced in quality (a piece of advice that the digital camera makers never tell you). We'll take car of any needed image editing, color correction and/or cropping here. You can email your digital-camera images to us, or (if you prefer) mail them on a floppy disk or CD-ROM. Some of the very best photos we get are ones taken with digital cameras.

Also, bear in mind that A HIGH-QUALITY IMAGE WILL SELL YOUR CAR; a low-quality "snapshot" may well just waste your money, no matter where you advertise. Be sure you take the time to visit the "photo tips" link below and read our expert advice on how to photograph your car like a pro!

Text/ad copy maximum words: 50. If you send us the text of your ad via email (either within a regular email message, or saved and attached as a "plain text" file), or on a computer disk, then you have a 125-word maximum. PLEASE DO NOT INPUT YOUR TEXT IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, WHICH IS HARD ON THE EYES AND DIFFICULT TO READ (see?).
