If you do get a result, take a look at the date. If it's wildly out from when your car was around then disregard it.
As you can see in the above example, the article result is from the year 1900. If your car isn't from 1900 (we'll assume it's not!) then you probably won't want to see the newspaper article. If however you get a result for when your car was around, then you may want to see the newspaper article.
