I THINK(PRETTY SURE) THAT IS A TATRA, FROM THE DEEP RECESSES, REAR ENGINE AIR COOLED, CZECH BUILT. THIS INFO IS AS USUAL TOTALLY UNRELIABLE.

Hi! Back in 1952 when driving my father's westchester I was passed by such a Tatra. Naturally, as a "adventuresome" teenager, I had to give chase and show that a Cord can pass anything! I never saw the car again. It took off and I watched it disappear down the road. I think partly because even as a teenager, I wasn't going to drive faster than 70 mph. It wasn't until I was a mature 26 that I made my three attempts to hit 100. I did on the third try (2:00AM). Two days later, while crossing a railway track the Cord came to a rather sudden stop. The right front bottom king pin had wound its way out and the front hub came out of the yoke. Something to think about when you are cruising in traffic at 70 mph! I now leave home a little earlier so I can drive a little slower. Ric.

Hello Ric, do you recall the color of that Tatra? My Tatra was imported from Belgium in the early 1950's or late 1940's by the original owner. It resided in Ottawa. A second Tatra like mine was discovered in Ottawa a few years back.
