YAK Car Pic of the Day

And here come Uncle Billy and Harry Bailey in an early Dodge Brothers Touring, in the 1946 movie “It’s A Wonderful Life,” looking for George after his father’s stroke. The IMCDB has it pegged as a 1917-23 model. It sure looks a lot like the illustration in the 1920 brochure, so I’d say they’ve got it right. Hard to say if it’s the same car that George slammed into the tree after going on a bender just before the “bridge incident,” but odds are it was.

Here’s wishing all YAK followers a very Merry Christmas, and the Happiest of New Years!
