The golden age of gas fumes

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Did you know that in 1927 Cadillac offered 50 different body styles from a variety of coach-builders, and a whopping 500 different colour combos?

I didn’t either.

That’s just one of many nuggets of automotive miscellany I happened upon while strolling the 18th fairway at Cobble Beach today. It’s a little overwhelming to take in so much automobile history at one go. How do you fully appreciate a Cord Speedster when you’re already overwhelmed by a Stutz Bearcat and a bevy of vintage Bentleys?

There were a number of cars on view that were over one hundred years old. I can’t imagine that anyone is going to be restoring and showing a 2017 Cadillac a hundred years from now, but I suspect the Type 55 will still be going strong two hundred years after it left the factory.

That’s because they don’t build stuff like they used to. The idea that you took pride in what you built and made it to last has pretty much gone out the window. Guys like Henry Ford and Walter Chrysler put their actual names on the cars that came out of their factories. They staked their reputations on the quality of their products.

Times have changed, and not for the better.
