Tech of the past: Rambler Knickerbocker

The 1912 Rambler Knickerbocker limousine was quite the sight. With a separate chauffeur's compartment and all leather and mohogany interiors, as well as silk curtains over the windows, this was a car to make a statement. And that statement? The owner must be wealthy, as he just spent $4,200 on this limo (7 years, 1 month average salary).
