The girl’s clearly from a wealthy family. My she looks young to be out on her own with a driver. Her face says to me that this isn’t out of the ordinary.

Women and cars, cars with character. I was just lamenting to a friend how cars seem to resemble each other and how there’s little variation. I’m saddened that the new version of the VW Bug is to be no more. So I’m looking for cars with charm and character.

This Union Army mail wagon was used in the Civil War.
