Pic-A-Day (317) Albert Mach Fine Art
1913 Imp 
Built by the W. H. McIntyre Co. of Auburn, Indiana for only two years, 1913 and 1914. The Imp was a pioneer manufacturer of Cyclecars in America.
The passenger rode in a tandem seat directly behind the driver.

The Imp was powered by a V-Twin (two cylinder) air cooled motorcycle engine. The engine had a heavy flywheel and developed 10 to 12 horsepower. The transmission was of the friction type (4 speeds forward) and the rear wheels were driven through long V-belts outside of the car.
Other specifications included frame construction, light weight wood, sheet metal body, no axles, independent wheel suspension, seats two passengers, wheelbase 100 inches, thread 36 inches, tires 28 x 2 1/2 inches, weight 600 pounds, top, horn and extra lights. All for a price of $375.00.
1913-14 Imp Springs
The Imp Cyclecar had many original and unique features, particularly in its spring construction.
Instead of having axles there are two flat springs set crosswise of the frame and with their ends attached to yokes between which the wheel spindles are fitted.
Those in the front being attached to a pivoted steering knuckle, while those in the rear are fastened to a rigid arm.

The W. H. McIntyre Co. also produced the McIntyre (1909-1915) and W. H. McIntyre was general manager of the Kiblinger (1907-1909).

 1957 DESOTO ADVENTURER COUPE

Under the guidance of their visionary chief designer Virgil Exner, Chrysler Corporation finally broke free of their staid and conservative design language of the late 1940s and early 1950s with the influential new “Forward Look” of 1955. Chrysler began hinting at its reborn sense of style through a series of dream cars that were the product of a collaboration between Exner and Ghia’s Luigi “Gigi” Segre. The Forward Look thrust Chrysler back into the spotlight and ushered in the era of chrome, fins, and flamboyant style.

This DeSoto Adventurer is one of only 1650 coupes built for the 1957 model year. This lovely example wears an older restoration that has seen many years of regular care and maintenance in the hands of a seasoned collector. According to the trim tag, this car is a genuine Adventurer Sportsman Coupe, correctly finished in original Surf White with Adventurer Gold roof and lower body sweep.

Comprehensively restored a few years after being found. It presents in very good condition, with straight panels and factory-appropriate gaps. Chrome trim and brightwork are also in good condition, with very good bumpers and moldings showing some light polish marks from regular care. This car retains the original gold-anodized wheel covers, unique to the Adventurer. Because of their delicate nature, most get painted during restoration, so it is rare to find a set with the anodized plating intact.

Interior features factory-correct upholstery, which is specific to the Adventurer and corresponds with the trim tag. The fawn-gold seats have white accents and distinct tweed-style fabric inserts. Door panels match the chairs and feature patterned-alloy inserts that repeat on the instrument fascia. The carpets, dash top, and other interior panels are all in fine condition. Period correct “Flookerang” logo floor mats (the official symbol of The New Look) protect the carpets. The top-line Adventurer came equipped with a radio, push button transmission control, and deluxe heater, and this car adds the optional power-adjustable front seat.
