Advertisement: A Grand Touring Car by Atlas motors

Isn't this old car a beauty? Just think of it--a car costing $2,000 back then might translate today into the $100,000 range, if not a lot more. It's impressive, because for its time, very few motors were being made in the United States of that value or style. Historically speaking, there's more to be found out at this webpage.
Handcrafting all the bells and whistles of such a model may have taken many days, not to mention any hand tufting to its leather upholstered seating. And one simply couldn't do without "James," the chauffeur! It must have been "unseemly" for a lady to drive herself to any location. But times were changing, and spirited women everywhere could feel the power of ownership of one's car as something to strive for.
Happy Creativity everybody!

Ann, you couldn't be more right! We're so glad you like this one too! The last antique auto show we attended, I promptly fell in love with 2 of the vehicles there. And I can't stand modern automobiles for the most part. :)
