In honor of the Los Angeles International Auto Show, here are some car photos I found in the archives.

  • Vice President Richard Nixon after his visit to Venezuela? Interesting guess! But no.
  • Bugsy Siegel? Alas Siegel died in 1947. No.
  • J. Edgar Hoover? No.
  • Mickey Cohen? (Chris Morales). Exactly. And why did he need a new Caddy?
