Most of the questions here are "my current car is broken?". I was wondering about including questions about automotive history. Things like "What are the key differences between a model A and Model T ford?". This might increase visits to the site, as well as attracting more car buffs.

Well, yes, they're going to be: https://mechanics.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic
"What are the key differences between a model A and Model T ford?"
An open-ended question like this is hard to answer definitively. For example, what makes a difference "key"?
A more specific (and yet still "historical) question could be answered however. For example, if you were to ask "I can't seem to get a good oil seal on my Model A - were they always known to have poor oil seals?" (a problem similar to one faced by my neighbor: his vintage car was always known for poor oil seals so he has drip pans everywhere).
The chat room, however, has fewer restrictions and is a perfect place to bring up conversational topics or questions.
