A photo that appears every once in a while, this time on a facebook page. Dated 1899 and comes from the Vancouver, BC, archives.

 

It has a steering wheel and no shafts for horses, but it also doesn't appear to have anything driving the wheels.

 

Maybe it only goes downhill?

 

May be an image of 8 people and outdoors

Aliens with new form of energy unknown to us humans.

And as long as the Packard Clipper theme is going, here's a '47 Custom Super 8 Club sedan. Photo taken in 1947.  Grandma bought the car brand new!  And still in the family today.

Those fenced-in Packards deserve a better look.  The Studebaker to the left is s 1951 Commander Land Cruiser.  That 1937 Super Eight club sedan must have been in very good condition for it to be displayed on a front line position as a 14 or 15 year old car, even on that type of used car lot.

It is becoming very hard to find pictures we have not posted 3 times already.

Most of mine will be original as I just discovered the box of photos in storage 2 weeks ago and am slowly digitizing them when I have time.    Lots of fun. Thank you Walt for the thread. Interesting thought, would this thread have emerged without COVID?

Probably yes, since I am pro pre WWII era and felt that not many people looking here although they liked that era would make a move to express that interest more vigorously. Timing is everything and the Covid crisis just made me act faster thinking everyone needed a break to just be happy again even for a few heart beats. Words are very important ( ask any author including this one) but people like to see pictures. With no car club meetings, car shows, flea markets, cruise nights etc. this came about ( even if those events were on we still like to look at pictures).

I couldn’t have said it better. This forum has become an important part of my retirement.   An OOPS photo 6749584E-9F29-4598-9FBD-A95DCABEE2B1.jpeg.7bc5c3007fc148c327561ac6f742b850.jpeg

The British military bought large numbers of bikes in WW1. This one looks to be a 1915 Triumph, first year that Triumph got a proper gearbox. The year before they had a Sturmey-Archer rear hub set up.

Few years ago a fellow Maxwell owner John Illenye sent me this picture of him, his wife and his amazing 1917 Triumph survivor with original paint and period unit markings.

Not pre-WW2 but still kind of vintage, looks like a 1954 plate.  With all the Duesenberg enthusiasts looking to reduce stress, I thought this would be a worthwhile contribution. Where is it today?

Nettercutt Museum 20 Grand. It use to be in the Twin Cites Minnesota. I believe Mr. Archer from the company ADM owned it
