An Endless Chain of Cars

 I love this card from the 1933 World's Fair, A Century of Progress, in Chicago.  

For those of us who are too young to remember Nash's and aren't car guys and gals here's a brief history of the company:

"The Nash Motor Company, founded in 1916, was an American automobile manufacturer known for its innovative designs and features. The company introduced numerous industry-firsts, including heating and ventilation systems and seat belts. Nash cars were renowned for their durability and comfort. In 1954, Nash merged with Hudson to form American Motors Corporation (AMC), which eventually became a part of the Chrysler Corporation in 1987."

Does the Nash Tower look familiar?  Carvana claims to have invented the automobile vending machine.  That may be technically true but the world saw the glass tower of moving colorful cars a full 80 years earlier!
