    Love the pic of the kids on the unicycle. The days when you were allowed to let your kids find their limits. Just past the limit means grazed elbows and knees.

    Bit of info on this one:

    Auto Barge 1949

    July 26, 1949 Southeast Missourian
    The towboat, Commercial Tennessean, stopped in Cape Girardeau overnight for engine repairs while on the way from Memphis to St. Louis with a loaded automobile carrier type barge. The barge, three decks high, was carrying 137 new Ford automobiles for delivery to St. Louis, from where they were to be distributed to the dealer trade. After repairs the tow was to proceed today.

    I wonder if there are any clearer photos of this car in existence. Pretty sure it says Elgin Piston Pin

    Local Dodge dealer was allowed to pace the Indy 500, he came in to the pit too fast and crashed, I have the pit incident on 8mm film taken by my father who was standing there when the crash happened. The pace car has since been restored, was supposed to be given to Al Unser the winner that year, Dodge let him pick something else, he chose a Charger, he still feels the pace car rightfully belongs to him.

    This batch comes from Ormond Beach in Florida that was one of the places people chose to come out and set speed records. Year after year they went faster and faster and the tradition held between the years of 1903 and 1910.

    The car on the left is a Maxwell-Briscoe. The guys in the car? Well those guys are Mr. Maxwell and Mr. Briscoe.

    1.jpg

    The guy in white is driver Arthur McDonald and he is piloting a 90hp Napier. The other guy is unknown

    2.jpg

    Here’s the 60hp Fiat Cyclone. This was at the beginning of the car’s life. I would be a racer for nearly a decade after and by the time it was done, this thing was used up.

    3.jpg

    The man himself! Cigar chomping Barney Oldfield was an American racing hero of the highest order in the 1900s. Here his is being the wheel of the Lightning Benz, ready to attack the beach.

    4.jpg

    Here’s a photo of the mighty V8 that powered the Darracq race car back in 1906. This thing was literally all motor. Note the bare frame rails, steering column.

    5.jpg

    Here’s another shot of the Fiat Cyclone. While it was down on power as compared to many other monsters, it was much smaller and could lay down some speeds in the ballpark of the heavy hitter.

    6.jpg

    Driver EH Fredricks behind the wheel of a Mercedes race car in 1905.

    7.jpg

    This was a powerful 75hp Simplex but with all these guys standing around it, the car is nothing but a busted wreck. No word on the driver.

    8.jpg

    A frontal shot of the Darracq with its cool V-shaped radiator and happy driver and riding mechanic.

    9.jpg


    This missile shaped beauty is the Stanley Steamer entry that would run over 100mph on the stand. It was a radical departure from virtually everything else.

  17. Still don't see one since this one isn't a station wagon.
