A “Deserves Another Look” post. These are posts that had cool stuff, but were never looked at when I posted them. This one is the first great American road trip.
Emily Post did it and wrote about it. In 1915. In definitely the wrong car.
Back then big Rolls like that were designed for a leisurely drive from the country estate, not hard driving through bad roads and terrible terrain. She should have used a Packard.
Still it sounds like a grand time and perhaps this book started the American Road Trip.
