This blog will expand on themes and topics first mentioned in my book, "The Automobile and American Life." I hope to comment on recent developments in the automobile industry, reviews of my readings on the history of the automobile, drafts of my new work, contributions from friends, descriptions of the museums and car shows I attend and anything else relevant to those interested in automobiles and auto history.

Cars from Coronado, IV -- a Special Sunday Treat!
Every party needs atleast one Model T -- the car that changed the world!
Ludwig Erhard, the architect of the German post-WWII miracle, would be proud of this M-B from the 1950s!
A rare 1954 MG ZA
a 1940 Lincoln Zephyr -- Edsel's baby!
A late (?) 1920s Auburn.
Hi folks, after lunch today I took a quick trip to the Coronado Library to get a few DVDs. As it turned out, about two blocks from where I live, a group was having a patio luncheon. And the carsthey parked on the side of the road were pretty incredible! So here are a few of these beautiful and noteworthy cars.
