I think it makes us all very happy.

Walt, it s more than happy, it's addicting.  It is the first thing I check in the morning when I turn my computer on.  I am back on this thread while I sit here and eat my lunch.  Can't thank you and all the posters enough!!!

Charlie Beesley's car pictures, part 3 - Sales and Service | Hemmings

Clearly, this 1940 DeSoto photo is staged since that is a four cylinder crankshaft on the ground. Dodges were six cylinder cars at the time.

Love the Duesenbergs. Always thought those bumpers looked out of place and kind of flimsy on such fine cars.

They are more for looks and to make a little noise when someone is parking near a car - ex. a 1934-1936 Auburn had a 5" inch bumper on it and yet is makes a smile and if you hit that lower part of the smile it just snaps the bumper off the car (after it puts a couple dents in the car via the bumper bolts).

This is back there in the maybe 150 pages if not earlier (and hope your reposting it brings some other auto show photos out of the woodwork) - this is I believe a Cincinnati Auto show and there are two great Stutz cars to the center left.

Re the Duesenberg model A - I love the sedan in the center photo, a friend has one just like this and the car is not restored and just grand.  Yes Keiser ,the bumpers kind of do look like popsicle sticks don't they?

But they look better in person.
