The image above shows the interior of a 1920 Pierce Arrow automobile. The car was one of many on display at an event held at the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan (near Kalamazoo). What I find most interesting about this shot is the speedometer. If you look closely, the speedometer is more like an odometer and appears to max out at 75 MPH before returning to 0 again.
The Gilmore Car Museum is a great place to visit if you enjoy automobiles. They have a huge collection of classic cars and the people who run the museum are knowledgeable and friendly. Many of the cars in the museum are actually owned by people who work at the museum.
Comments and feedback welcome.
