I had hoped to add to the collection once I had upgraded my camera, but now that it is overorganized I see no point in posting.

But the good news is even though the pothole is slightly larger than the driver expected, pull it out and the Model A is still as good as new and can continue driving down the beach.

I never knew about these later Peerless cars. I love the Darth Vader look being black and a lack of ornamentation. Very classy car in a very classy era.

Amelia Earhart with a 37 Cord and her 37? Electra...

The 30's era was such a class act....and even the name Electra has that special ring to it.

Howard Lee Griswold (1878-1955) built the automobile shown in this photograph for the president of the Columbus Railway, Power and Light Company in the early 1900s.

This early example of a homemade machine shows the conversion of a large farm wagon body with wheels propelled by a belt and flywheels.Howard Lee Griswold completed correspondence courses in electrical and mechanical engineering from International Correspondence Schools in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

1938 Phantom Corsair..

SIA-PhantomCorsair_lede2.jpg

n 1937 Bohman and Schwartz also undertook their most famous (and beautiful) creation, the building of a futuristic shark-like body designed by H.J. Heinz’ son, Rust Heinz, and placed on a custom-built 1936 Cord 810 chassis. Called the Phantom Corsair, it later appeared in the 1938 David O. Selznick movie “Young In Heart” as the mysterious Flying Wombat automobile. It was purchased in 1947 by car collector Richard Rush for $5,000. Rush sold it to Los Angeles radio and television personality Herb Shriner in 1951. Shriner had the car repainted and modified to allow better cooling for its Cord powerplant, but the results were not very pleasing to the eye. William Harrah purchased it in the 1960s and had the car restored back to its original state and it currently resides in the National Automobile Museum (The former Harrah Collection) in Reno, Nevada.
