Yow, I can't unsee this.  It makes a '50 Nash potato bug look better.

Haven't search to see if this one made it to these pages or not. It was posted on a facebook page with the caption - Greta Garbo in her 1929 Rolls-Royce.

 

As far as I can work out it is a 1928 Reo Flying Cloud. I note it has Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels which the regular Reos did not use.

We seem to be posting a lot of Austro Daimler cars.   They are fantastic and next to none survived.   Did we post this one yet?  From Getty Images.

This supposedly exists and is for sale.  Someone needs to get Ed a fishing rod so he can find his wallet.

In postwar Britain, the one who wrote the check got what he wanted:

Rolls-Royce didn't care for Nubar Gilbenkian's taste, either, but at the time, most British industries were beggars, not choosers immediately after the war.

Here's a better look at that Dodge Four town car: Wonder if these were a Willoughby series custom body?

Wow look at that positive camber on the rear wheel; it's the same on the other Austro Daimler picture you posted. This must have made for some nice, tight handling?

Austro-Daimler got a swing rear axle from the 1927 ADR onwards.

If you ever jack up a 540k and then put it down on the ground you get some big time camber on the real wheels.

One very seldom jacks up a 540K, as your usually too busy trying to get it dialed in...........twenty hours work for a twenty minute ride......in most cases. Is there anyone who actually drives a 540K for something like “regular” miles on a tour or road rally? Is so, I have never seen it in 45 years of doing pre war car activities.

Unfortunately I don't have much in the way of original old photos,  I do however have lots of old original brochures and thanks to a nice lady in TX I recently bought her late husbands collection from have some more unusual older brochures i can contribute images from. 

I did mention to her that while she was cleaning out to move,  that if she ran across any old car photos,  I would be interested in buying them.  Lets hope she comes up with something. 

What isn't from factory dealer brochures is from some period auto show souvenir programs.
