What would Buffalo Bill drive? Well, if the caption on this old photo is correct, and this is Buffalo Bill, he would drive a 1904 Michigan.
Oddly enough I recently wrote an installment for the monthly column, The Independent Thinker, for Cars & Parts magazine profiling the Blood brothers of Kalamazoo, Michigan. As it turns out there were three automotive manufacturers operating in this city by 1906 that marketed their vehicles under the Michigan name. One was a Blood brothers enterprise.
Awhile back I purchased two cases of slides that were produced in the 1950s from original negatives and photographs. This was among them.
Other little gems include Ben Turpin with his McFarland, Jack Demspey with a Chrysler Imperial, and Louis Chevrolet with a Buick racer. How cool is that!
