I am curious why the search has to end as it always has, up a dead alley. Is there any one who has a connection to her family or the studio that she was contracted to. Let us keep digging.

MGM shot hundreds of photos of Jean Harlow with all her cars. She was a driving nut. Therefore, if the L29 had been hers, the studio would have shot scores of photos.

I'm not so much concerned with whether Harlow owned the car or not, as whether or not it exists. The Brockman article makes a good case for the case having returned from Europe and possibly having been sold in Canada. I agree with Ethan, I can't imagine how this car couldn't have escaped scrapping, unless it had been vandalized or such.

They're still out there. It's just a question of whether or not "they're" includes this car.

i now see that some of the Brockman collection pictures are being posted on this site.

so it looks like again....the board is listening to its members and things are beginning to happen.

jim took copious notes and while the pictures are nice, its the notes identifying the cars, the places and the people that are most important to enable us to match up the old pictures with todays cars.

i do appreciate this material finally coming to the members.

i hope one day that you the members will have acces to the collection in the not too distant future.

thanks at least for letting bill post some of the pictures.
