The Bottle-Shaped Car and Speeding


From the July 25, 2018, MidWeek  (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back."

1918 and 1943, 100 and 75 Years Ago.

1918:  "An auto, the body in the form of a bottle, was on DeKalb streets advertising a Milwaukee beverage.  The car passed on to other cities west later in the day."

Being a Milwaukee beverage, I have to wonder what kind of beverage it was and if they handed out free samples?  Must have been the forerunner of the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile.

1943:  "Sheriff  A; Deisz has no respect for a speeding motorist at any time and especially now.  While driving on the Sycamore road a machine passed his going to fast a speed for safety and Sheriff Deisz set out in pursuit, arresting the man a few minutes later."
