2021—Stop!

When I walked around to the back of the 1923 Locomobile Model 48 Sportif on display at the Western Antique Airplane and Automobile Museum (WAAAM) in Hood River, Oregon, I was literally stopped in my tracks. I had never seen a brake light on an automobile like this. The Locomobile was a luxury car in its time. I’m not sure how the hand signals were lit but the design is certainly eye catching. I consider this 1923 Locomobile an antique. But the museum also houses newer vehicles which I’m not quite ready to consider in the antique category including a 1969 Chevy Camero which is the same year and similar body style to my first new car, a 1969 Pontiac Firebird. How can that be an antique?

  1. Unusual light, I’ve never seen something like that either. Thanks for putting the museum name & location in your post, it’s one I hadn’t heard of.
