Overland Makes Life More Worth Living

We think we’d look quite stylish in this lovely Overland Model 79, as sold by Loucks Garage in Skidmore, Missouri in 1914.  As the weather gets warmer, we’re warming up to the idea of being “next door to nature in all her varying seasonal charms,” and we’re ready to be refreshed with new scenes and fresh air.  If you have this model and are willing to take us for a spin, please let us know.  From the March 19, 1914 Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 6 (click to enlarge):
