http://www.COACHBUILD.com is a webmagazine focused on Special Coachbuilding, unique cars, the art of automotive design and the numerous coachbuilding companies that created so many wonderful pieces of automotive artwork through out the decades.

The COACHBUILD.com website contains two main sections:
- The Frontpage with articles, stories and news about Coachbuilding, written by the Coachbuild.com editors.
- The Coachbuilders Gallery is a continuously expanding overview of coachbuilders and their numerous timeless creations from past to present. Pictures and info are collected from all over the internet and/or sent in by readers, owners and various experts.

This forum is created to interact with the visitors and to enable you to contribute and discuss anything about any coachbuild related subject.
Each coachbuilder has its own forum, sorted per continent and country, where you can start new topics about anything related to the specific coachbuilder.
Multiple pictures can be uploaded. (Max. size 2000 x 2000 pixels.)
The images will be displayed as a clickable (600 pixels wide) version in each post.
You will find the upload feature below the text input field.
If known, please mention the copyright and source of the uploaded images.

Eventually the Coachbuilders gallery at the website COACHBUILD.com will benefit from all the expertise and images made available at this forum.

If you want a missing coachbuilder to be added to this forum or for tips, questions and/or requests, you can address the admins and moderators here: viewtopic.php?f=81&t=52

The Coachbuilders forums are visible to everyone, but only registered users can participate.
The Members and Lifestyle forums are visible and accessable to registered users only.

Please fill out your personal profile as much as possible, because it's always nice to know who's talking. Commercial URLs in your signature below each post are not allowed. This is a sponsor's privilige. It is allowed to add your URL to your profile, though.

Enjoy your stay at this forum and many thanks for your contributions!

João Gazineu has just been appointed to moderator. :)
We could use some help and since João is the #1 poster, he is the right guy for the job.

To save on download time I have reduced the thumbnail size from 800 pixels to 600. Please let me know if this works for you or maybe they could be resized to a smaller size?
Maximum size of images to be uploaded is now 2000 pixels.

Guys, what do you think of my newly created Forum-icons?
It's a Marchal headlight. To keep track of all new replies, just follow the burning lights. :help:

It's funny, but I have to get used to it myself... The former icons looked cleaner.

The icons are fine, but is the Folor Color pallette new? I had not noticed it until today.

You mean the font color? Nope, not new.

Just some notes: there isn't any evidence of some italian coachbuilders (Barbi, Coriasco, Catellan, Romanazzi,Viberti and others). I can provide to write something, but i can't open a new section.
However, Lombardi was an hoarse coachbuilder in Padoa, Francis Lombardi is the right name.
Thanks.

You can nominate missing coachbuilders here: viewtopic.php?f=81&t=1065&start=180
A new section will then be created by Joao or me. (Most likely by Joao, because I'm often otherwise engaged)

To all.
The forum is under attack by numerous Spam users. Almost daily. :(
These "users" almost always use Gmail and AOL accounts... I will block all users making use of Gmail and AOL, so please let me know if you're using one of both, so I can make safe your account will not be blocked.

When you're registering to become a new member and still want to use your Gmail, just drop me a line at michiel@coachbuild.com and I will unblock the specific e-mail address.

I wonder where the guys from AutoEvolution.com got their inspiration for this article from...
Read: http://www.autoevolution.com/news/coach ... 25553.html ;)

And then read the following:
Part 1: http://www.coachbuild.com/index.php?opt ... &Itemid=69
Part 2: http://www.coachbuild.com/index.php?opt ... &Itemid=69

Go to your user control panel and click on 'profile'. There I have added three textfields where you can enter the cars you currently own, used to own and wish to own. Could be interesting to know.
