European car database

Started in 2003, the Car Models List, Car Models Timeline, Car Models Encyclopedia, Car Models Database, Car Models & Engines Database were all databases available for sale for 10 years until I expanded to American market in 2013, consequently they did not contained “Europe” in their names. All the above were handmade, entering data manually from AutoKatalog car magazines and Wikipedia.

After 2015 I made additional databases for Europe using automated scripts to extract data from websites: the Germany and United Kingdom car databases.
