Period images to relieve some of the stress

One just does not realize how impressive some of these cars really were! When a good friend's 1915 Marmon custom roadster's restoration was finished, they had me sit in the car sitting as naturally as I would, hands on the steering wheel. Then they got a tape measure and measured from my nose to the Motometer. Looking at that Marmon touring above, may give some idea how large that car was. It was nine feet from my nose, to the Motometer!

 

The wheel base of a model T Ford is 100 inches.

The 50's parade photo below came from the Cadillac PR director in 1972, in response to a request for pictures of Cadillacs with celebrities. They had captions stapled to them, and I couldn't figure out why they captioned this parade with TR, who surely did not make it all the way to the early 1950's!  And, the TR photo of Dave's wasn't included in the package!  CadillacParadeWashingtonDC_000014.jpg.6056f8376ce9c38df8349905586fd13c.jpg

1950's to perhaps 1970's - unfortunately no detail other than can attest 100% to car existing in back of someones garage today.

Looks like a 904, so it’s probably a fake split windshield car now.........

I think it is a 905, looks like 18" wheels and there appears to be a raised rib on the fender lights as well as converted seal beams on original 12 headlights

A photo that reappears every once in a while - it is a 1928-29 Studebaker, probably a Dictator. A good close up of the factory optional pinstriping.
