The Cadillac Database - An interview for the Hagley Museum
« on: November 23, 2015, 03:57:51 PM »
A few months ago I was interviewed by The Hagley Museum in Baltimore, along with two other auto enthusiasts, about the fabulous auto literature collection that was put togeher over a period of some 7 decades by the late Z. Taylor Vinson.

I found out today through a friend in Hong Kong (of all places) that all three (unedited) interviews were now posted on You Tube.

For CLC members interested in auto literature and scale models, you might enjoy what us three "old guys" have to day about our mutual "hobby".

What a wonderful insight into the life of Yann Saunders, that is, the Cadillac part of it.

Without his contribution, we all would be lost.

Correction: the Hagley Museum is in Wilmington, DE, and is located on the site of Eleutherian Mills, the original du Pont black powder works along the Brandywine River.  Baltimore is home to a number of fine museums in its own right, including the B & O Railroad Museum and the Baltimore Streetcar Museum, but not Hagley.

You are correct.  My mistake. Sorry.
