Savannah Grand Prize of the AAA 1908 -- July 7, 2010

I like pre-WWII race cars, especially pre-WWI cars. The 1908 Grand Prize of the American Automobile Association in Savannah, Georgia, was the first Grand Prix race held in the United States. The FIAT driven by Louis Wagner won.

The poster is from a wonderful site called Vintage Ad Browser:

At lunctime today I took a walk to the East Bay Terminal and took some photos. It is closing in early August. I walked past Kate O'Brien's on the way there and a bunch of people were standing on the sidewalk watching Spain vs Germany in the World Cup semi-final. As I walked back, they all let out a shot. Spain must have scored.
