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 and Parts Swap Meet and Car Show, Springfield, OH September 7
Some hurried photos here -- I discovered that my batteries were almost dead and thus I missed many excellent photo opportunities while at the Springfield event. Certainly pick up trucks are hot right now as collectibles and they were everywhere on the Clark County Fairgrounds. It was a hot afternoon, and since my left knee was bothering me, I couldn't quite enjoy the swap meet the way I usually do. Very littie foreign stuff on the tables, as always the case. And this time no great treasures found!
