    One more car to identify. should be a tough one, or maybe not.

    It's a pre-1930 touring car that was forced to do double duty. The owner is a fairly famous name, but not necessarily in relation to cars. It's different from most big touring cars and the identifying features may jump out at you, or maybe not.

    No, I don't think the president would want to ride in this car.

    Lightbulb Larry's Explode-o-mobile. Designed to kill his competitors. He could never get Tom Edison to ride in it. :(

    No, it isn't a Doble. It's a gasoline powered car.

    You're right, DanaT, almost. It is not a Lambo but it shares something with a Lamborghini.
     
  11. It belonged to Mussolini?
