RM Southeby's Auctions and RM Auto Restoration
I first became of RM Auctions in Monterey California during "Car Week". I am lucky enough to be able to cover the events for the NAACC website and try to see what cars are available at the various auctions happened during car week. I am always on the lookout for cars with a Canadian connection and it is not surprising there are quite a few cars with a Canadian Connection.
Ban the Automobile: Instrument of Death, written by Rudy Croken former NAACC PEI Director.
Here is what Greg Williams' review. | AUGUST 22, 2017
At the turn of the last century, automobiles were busy reshaping North American cities and making travel more convenient. That is, all except in one Canadian province. In the early 1900s, automobiles were banned from the roads of Prince Edward Island.
“When I first heard that, I thought it was ridiculous,” says author Rudy Croken, whose book Ban the Automobile: Instrument of Death, released earlier this summer, shines a light on a little known aspect of P.E.I.’s past.
“When I was growing up, my dad told me about the ban, but I thought it might have been for a month or so,” Croken says. “I had no idea (it was more than a decade-long struggle) to get cars on the road.”
