Ralph Hamlin was a rather active fellow. He claimed to have owned the first motorcycle west of the Rockies, apparently started a bicycle shop, participated in many automobile races and even participated in the committee that organized the early Los Angeles Motor Shows. He also, starting in about 1905, became the distributor for Franklins in Southern California, later taking on Selden trucks and Scripps-Booth automobiles in his L.A. dealership. Read more about him at the link below....

The first photo shows him in a typical desert racing type of car which is a Franklin. The second photo shows his showroom in LA in 1902.

I've heard of putting a Tiger in your tank but an alligator in your trunk?? This photo taken in Texas in March of 1941 shows how this character moved them in the trunk of his 1939 Ford coupe....

We take a lot of things for granted today.....You can have a rollback come pick you up in 10 minutes after calling AAA on your cell phone.

Things were different back then......This sporty looking Demi Tonneau Touring car looks like it has had an argument with an immovable object. I bet it took a day or two to arrange to get the Rochester Carting Co. to come out and load (look at the HD saw horses probably used to hold the ramps) and bring this car home or to a shop where it could be repaired. The tow rig runs on hay also and not diesel fuel.....RMSC Photo

A prewar jalopy racer in Texas that has taken out the fence and looks to be on his way right out of the track.

It seems that these pilots of 1928-29 Ford roadsters are fairly aggressive drivers. In the second photo this driver is showing his high speed inside cornering maneuvers.

Two vintage photos of German automobiles captured by the U.S. during WWII. The top photograph is from an unknown U.S. unit and is labelled "Howard Slova, 1st Cook, Germany, '45 June" on the back. The bottom photograph is from an unknown unit of Ninth Air Force and appears to be an Opel Olympia

Packard Motor Co. enlisted members of the Marion Morgan Dancers to promote the 1927 model Packard 343 Series Eight. The troupe danced around the United States at auto events and in London in variety shows, specializing in interpretative Greek movement. Here, dancers perform a circle ceremony around a convertible coupe.

These country bumpkins in the second photo could not wait for their tea toddling city slicker relatives to leave in their Franklin after the long 4 TH. of July weekend.

Soon as they headed down the road they rolled out the barrel of the special sooth sippin stuff.....
