Leon C. Hinkle, Kansas City, Mo., musician on March 11, 1950, turned his fondness for the luxurious Pierce Arrow of the ‘20s into a model that he can perpetually admire. He thought it a thing of unsurpassed beauty when he first saw the car at a Kansas City auto show in 1929. For 20 years he worked in his spare time to build this scale model of the car, finally completing it last year. Powered by an electric motor which moves the car forward and reverse, the model is minute perfect in every detail. Only the tires were purchased in their finished state. Here Hinkle loads with luggage compartment. The open doors show the gearshift, dashboard, and the lap robe, an important accessory to the old touring model. (AP Photo/William P. Straeter)
