Pelikans

Information on the history of Pelikan and on the latest Pelikan products are available from the official Pelikan website.

For those who do not have the Pelikan bible, Pelikan Schreibgeräte, Martin Lehmann's website provides good reliable information: 

Werner Rüttinger's site provides an illustrated timeline of vintage Pelikan models as well as vintage nib charts and other information. 

Those of you brave enough to attempt Pelikan repairs may find a basic guide to the topic, written by Martin Lehmann and Tom Westerich, to be of use. 

The Pelikan's Perch, by Joshua Danley has emerged recently as a treasure trove of accurate  information on all things Pelikan. I regard it as essential

Another useful site is Appleboom.

 

Parkers

Parkercollector.com - information for collectors about Parker pens and pencils

My favorite online source for information on all things Parker.

parker51.com features bushels of information on this iconic Parker model.

Plenty of information about the Parker 75 may be found at parker75.com. 

There's no shortage of information, opinion, or Vacs at Vacumania.
