    Thanks, dbradley, looks as though you are probably right. And the view in the B&W old Pre-WWII photo is fantastic. Unfortunately, the color one appears to have been taken after WWII, and this thread is only for pre-WWII shots, bro.

    Thanks for your efforts, but can you pull the newer color pic so we don't clutter up the thread? THANKS, buddy!

    Ford's River Rouge plant in the mid-'30s. Suppose they should have called
    it "River HUGE" instead? Notice, they even had a street-car shuttle
    to transport employees in from the parking lot!

    Here's a real mystery AND a COOL photo! An American roadster from around the WWI era. The Surrey Vintage Vehicle Society says the man at the wheel worked for Briggs, but the body may be something else -- and even a race conversion? Even AACA members couldn't conclude, but they did suggest Mercer, Stutz, Marmon OR Dorris! From the high profile, my money's on Marmon. Help!!!
