Franklin

Another shot from the Gilmore Auto Museum. I was attracted to the fronts of a lot of the older cars due to the shapes of the lights versus the grill. These big round lights are amazing. The upper ones have to be at least a foot across. This is the front of a Franklin Automobile. I don't remember offhand what the year was, but it was pre WWII. The lower lights have propeller emblems on them to market these to aviators. There were photos in the exhibit of Lindberg and other aviators in front of these cars.

A little better photo than the last one I published. I tried to get the museum to remove the license plate for a few minutes, but they wouldn't do it. I figured it didn't hurt to ask.
