Dr. Pierpoint Buys an Oakland

Oh, for the days when buying a new car was worth reporting in the paper!  From the November 5, 1914 Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 8:

Buys a Light Six Oakland

Dr. J. E. Pierpoint purchased last week of C. E. Groves a 1915 Model, Light Six Oakland car.

This is probably the most complete, best equipped, up-to-date car in the county.  It is gray in color and one of the prettiest outlines in the country.
