Snail's Postcard Post

Baby You Can Drive My Car

I read that on this day, October 1, in 1908, Henry Ford’s Model T, the groundbreaking, assembly line-made car designed for the masses, went on sale for the first time. So here’s a postal salute to the automobile. Good and bad, it changed history.

…the most significant letter in my collection.

 

 

 The ink is so faded…Post date October, 24, 1977

 

 

  

 

starring one of the most famous automobiles, “Further”

  

Made of shredded car bodies! One of my favorite art pieces. I fell in love with it from a picture in an art magazine, then years later, I turned a corner at the Dia: Beacon, and there it was, filling the room! (By the way, Dia is an excellent modern art museum if you’re in NYC and want to take a day-trip “upstate”)
