Re: True Losses

Graham-Paige survived the Depression but in very reduced circumstances.

Kaiser-Frazer was built around what was left of the Graham-Paige dealer and service support network immediately after WWII, both of those names wound up being dropped but Kaiser was behind Willys/Jeep until 1970.

REO survived into the '60s as a truck brand, their lovely and elegant cars were discontinued after '34.

Graham-Paige, 1928 Coupe

The Graham-Paige was a magnificent car indeed! The company was founded in 1927 and lasted as a trade name until the early 1960s.

A true loss

We frequently saw one just like this in my Staten Island neighborhood in the late forties along with a Reo with same rumble seat and similar body style. Wonder where such substantial and beautiful makes disappeared to. Mergers or the Depression?

SF Glamour, Oakland wrecks

I too am struck by the elegant posed cars with beautiful people in the City, and the wrecks we have been seeing from Oakland. Having lived a few miles from each in Marin most of my life, the different kinds of images typify what I know of both.

Re: Looks Brand New

Just don't take it cruising in 1950's Oakland!

Looks brand new

What a magnificent car. I would love to have this roadster for weekend cruises. If it was pre-loaded with two ladies dressed like these two, it would be all the better.

What's a Great Depression?

Waving goodbye to the roaring '20s. Hang on ladies, it's about to get tough all over.
