Happy Friday, everybody.
In honor of ending a 635 day streak. And their loyal fans with a hangover from free beer.
The Washington Auto Show, 1914. This one is dedicated to RamblinRover, who complained yesterday that I didn’t provide enough of a challenge identifying old cars.

Washington, D.C., in 1920. “Penn Oil Co., 16th and M Sts.”
Step into the FUTURE today with a Packard Clipper. Superior Motors, Washington, DC, 1946
President Taft’s 40-horsepower White Model M steam-powered touring car in 1909. And they call the latest presidential limo The Beast.
Aug. 28, 1939. “Golden Gate International Exposition, San Francisco. General Motors exhibit of GMC trucks with Pan American Airways Clipper Ship [Boeing 314 Honolulu Clipper] at Treasure Island. Bay Bridge in background.”
It’s Monday. Don’t worry, I got this.
Have a great weekend and, wherever you go, be sure to save room for a friend.
The trumpet player always gets the girl.
No better way to start the day than with a Jaguar in
British racing Jaguar green.
Mmmm, ice cream.
As I was trying to fall asleep last night, an AutoTrader popup add (sans DeMuro) caught my attention while reading an article.
Happy Labor Day. There was a time when Labor Day actually celebrated the American worker. Now it’s all about making people work at Labor Day sales. Hopefully some of you proles are enjoying a well-earned day of rest.
