Here is yours truly on the left and twin6 on the right last winter racing w/our sled dogs. As you can see the only thing he can jockey is a desk. Early Guy is way behind as you can see, I think he spends to much time playing with his tools and not his sled.....

This is a gent who was called Rattle Snake Pete and he was quite a character, he ran a Museum in Rochester, NY.

He was an early and very enthusiastic motorist who used to take his St. Bernard's out every day for a ride and participated in all the automotive events in the city. He used to milk Rattle Snakes for their venom as you can see in the forth photo. RMSC Photo

Not only that... he wore a hat, shoes, and a coat all made from snake skins. He'd be a welcome addition here on the HAMB. Peter Gruber. RMSC photo.

Definitely welcome here, as he apparently had a heavy foot. I like the serpent horn on the fender - certainly fitting for Ole Pete. RMSC photo.

Sure would fit in here..... he's a little nuts like all of us......

A view of Mill Street facing north from Corinthian Street. This photograph shows cars parked on both sides of Mill Street. One sign stands out from the buildings along this street and reads; "RATTLESNAKE PETE Pete Gruber Prop." This was a saloon, pool hall and museum owned by Peter Gruber, located at 10 Mill Street.

I donít think left-hand drive became standard in American cars until around 1920. Cadillac stayed right-hand drive until 1916. I don't know anything about Saxon except that's what the bad guy in Last Crusade chases young Indiana Jones in.

I love to see the foreign cars and settings. Here are some interesting US vehicles in the Philippines. On the left, Stanley mountain wagons in Baquio. Middle, a '29 Packard (633) in Manilla. Right, a Packard 326 sedan at a crossing near Manilla.

1926 Studebaker (????) Belonged to Larry Ellis father before he was born in 1941

Larry thought it might be a 1926 Buick Standard Six with Packard wire wheels.

Looks like a Studebaker to me.

One of the longest cars I have ever seen.... A stretched Rolls Royce Silver Ghost..... The extra length is in the cowl and hood and I am guessing it is 10"-12" longer than standard.

It has a very custom body with unsual fenders.......
