Last week David Greenlees posted a couple of photos of Kelly Petillo during the 1934 racing season. The first at Mines Field and the second at the Indy 500. Here he is again but this time at the 1932 Oakland 150 with ride along mechanic L.H. Miller.
Remember your Sweetheart while there is still time. Tomorrow is the day….
A photo from Newark, New Jersey, c. 1930 showing a modern garage with a radiator flushing machine. It appears to flush radiators in the car and possibly also in the tank on top of the machine where we can see a Model T Ford radiator.
I’m not sure why the crowd has gathered. I don’t imagine it was for the car-a 1913 Cadillac-unless they were giving rides. The license plate is a 1914 New Jersey. One would think an auto would not be such a curiosity in NJ by that late date.
At least you would think it wouldn’t be a problem with six people aboard and tire chains on the back. The car is a 1904 Autocar with a two-cylinder engine. Notice the left-hand drive; an unusual feature in automobiles this early.
