I wonder if we could find out what kind of car it was?
It was probably a big car.
Herb, that link doesn't work for me. Looks like you pasted in the wrong one?
Mike, I first thought the same, if you read the story, the owner of the castle died in a car crash in 1906
Herb: It does not work for me either
Read the story!
Ah sorry. I was expecting a photo.
Yep, You and I and other folks I'm sure! As I always say "You'll have that!"
Is this related ?

[ DISPLAYING ABSTRACT ]
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 27. -- Robert M. Snyder, the banker and promoter, met death in his automobile her6 at 6:30 o'clock to-night, while racing with another automobile. His chauffeur, Frank M. Schroeder, attempted to steer clear of Arthur Odell, a messenger boy, on a bicycle. The machine collided with the boy, and the curbstone at the same moment.
Thanks Herb ...
Looks like a great place to visit !
Sounds like and interesting fellow........
He was charged for bribery, his son for bank robbery, among other things. The same son was murdered in the west prior to Robert's death. The chauffer was charged for the messenger boy's death.
It took a while, but it appears the car was a Royal Tourist.......
