September 4, 2009, Newsletter Issue #226: Dictator's Rides

Tip of the Week

If you check out the President's cars at the Imperial Palace, you have to check out their political opposition, too. The collection shows that even the most diabolical dictators can have a soft spot for fine machinery. The collection includes Japanese Emperor Hirohito's 193 Packard (he's the one who sanctioned the bombing of Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941). You can also take a peek at Argentinean Juan Peron's 1939 straight-8 Packard, and Czar Nicholas II's 1914 Rolls-Royce (his assassination began World War I). If that's not enough evil, the collection also includes Adolph Hitler's mine-proof, bulletproof, armored 1936 Mercedes-Benz 770K. It may be the creepiest car in any car collection.
