Easy enough to identify the Budweiser Bevo boat, and it’s at the Pittsburgh Oktoberfest...........as I have other photos of it there in October of 1934. How about a photo of the Pierce Arrow 1931 Series 41 car that the one off body was removed to make this actual boat. I have photos of it from the early 90’s before it was removed off the Pierce chassis and placed on a V-12 Cadillac chassis. And, anyone want to comment on the coach builder of the boat?

LOVE THOSE FENDERS!  Wild guess Voisin? Bob

Bob, I posted the photo a few months ago on the BIG thread. With several other shots.........I can’t for the life of me remember what it was......but was thinking it was a Farman.

WOW this could have been the ultimate Hershey flea market vehicle decades ago! Can you imagine it being driven in the flea market there now? - with a tin can tied to a string to drag along the ground? Thanks Peter!

Most people would pay good money to see the average cart driver/rider get into that T without it turning over sideways. Bob

Point deductions on the show field for mismatched tires. :)

 

Looks like Albert Einstein in the car. I know he was famous in his time but was unaware that he participated in parades. I wonder if any other physicist in the modern era has gotten that type of general public exposure.
