A Car For Every Year – Part 3 – From 1921 to 1930

This is the third in an ongoing series of “A Car for Every Year”. Part one covers the period 1886 to 1900. Part 2 covers the period 1901 – 1920 and thereafter each part covers a period of 10 years up until 1999. That ties in with our annual car show competition rules, and the fact that we only judge vehicles built in 1999 or prior.
