Reo Grand

From the Classics on the Mile antique car show yesterday in Coral Gables:

1929 Reo Flying Cloud

1909 Reo Runabout

The Reos side-by-side.

Last month at the national show in Lakeland, I noted that I had never seen a Reo automobile; now they’re coming out of the woodwork, so to speak. And I’m really happy to see these rarities.

It should be noted that the 1909 is unrestored. There’s a very strong element in the classic car community that advocates leaving cars as they are, come what may. Given the current state of my Pontiac, I can appreciate that.
