3 Civilians were killed in this Packard by collateral damage ("friendly
fire") on Dec. 7, '41. As Sherman said, war really is hell.

A secret informant sent me this photo of EG last week when they visited a Botanical Garden on the brass car tour.

Not the best photo for car nuts, but it does show what tourists went for in the 1920's. I think this was in Lincoln, NH and have no idea if it's still there. Like fire towers and observers, I suspect this too went into oblivion, but there were quite a few of these in their heyday.

Another glimpse into a tourist destination, back before air conditioning. The White Mountains in NH have always attracted motorists since cars first appeared. This is in Jackson, NH and the car at left is a 1912 Packard model 30.

Yes, 1912 Cadillac. I think the plate is European. Looks like a European radiator cap too.

She seems awfully happy to be cranking her Reo cut-down, don't you think?

What better thing to ponder during lunch, than a chain drive car. Today's special is a FIAT.
