Hi Guys, anyone have any pictures of the Chrysler Display at the 1933-34 Chicago Worlds Fair? Really looking for some interior shots of the building. Also, more interested in the 34 Chrysler Display featuring Chrysler and DeSoto Airflow cars. Also, any pics from the GM building featuring 34 LaSalle's. Thanks to everyone who has posted "period" Pre WWII pics !!!! Jim Fredrick in Minn.

Here is something you might find interesting:

My father and one of his race cars at his Manhasset, LI service station. He raced from 28-32. He spoke of a Miller Ford and the other I remember was one with a v8 Hisso airplane engine converted to 4 cylinders. Not sure which one this is.

The 1934 LeBaron Airflow is alive and well in the mid west, and owned by a member that occasionally posts on this forum.

The V-16 MILLER engine was removed from the Lockhart wreck and powered the Sampson 16 Special in the INDY 500 driven by Bob Swanson 1939 & 1940. Totally restored it is in the INDY 500 Collection. Bob

From The Henry Ford - Please make a note of it - Henry Ford standing with a Packard (to be exact a 1935 Packard Super Eight Formal Sedan)

So how do we know it's a 1935 and not a 1936 Packard?

This is a great thread with lots of neat photos.  To add to the fun here is a photo of 1913 American Underslung Type 32 roadster.  This was the midsized car in the American lineup in 1913.  It had 37 inch wheels and used a 30 Teetor Hartley engine for power.  They shared a chassis with the Type 34 American Tourist.  No roadsters still exist but there are several Tourists in existence.

The building in the background is interesting.  I have another photo of a new American that has that building in the background. According to Google there is park near the site of the American factory in Indianapolis that has a building called the Pagoda but it is not exactly like the building in the old photo.  Maybe someone familiar with Indianapolis knows more about the setting.

Love the Stutz RA with mask in your ID picture. Good to see that responsible Stutz owners are taking COVID-19 seriously.

Here’s another but the car is almost hidden. I would love to find one of those party hats though...
