In this section

PreWarCar.com is a web magazine with new features stories, new car and parts classifieds 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This since July 2001. We feature barnfinds, mystery cars ( from your family album maybe?), mystery parts, interesting auction cars, and more. Much more. Our unfamous hard to crack quizzes have driven connoisseurs around the world to insanity and/or fame. Between all this your photos and comments are most welcome. A good photo + 100 word story which makes it to the PreWarCar homepage is awarded with the PreWarCar Reporters Cap. A regular flow of good features can lead to even more.

Dear Editor,

I took a look at the Cord and the Alfa that gained prizes at Amelia Island. No comment on the Alfa, but did Cords have Chromed Wheel and 'White-walls' when new?
Unless great care is taken chroming usually degrades the metal and one stands a very good chance of a wheel collapse through the spokes breaking. that is if the car is actually driven!
As I see it the problem is that in around 30 years there will be no-one around who has first-hand knowledge of original pre WW2 cars. In any case, it appears that we already have a situation when no-one really cares. What do you think?

Yours, Peter Maguire.


editor: keep in mind this is not a standard Cord, but a Special or Custom if you like. It is a one off specimen in that respect. Built or adapted back then.
