[JULY 16, 2005] MOUNT PULASKI -- The Pierce-Arrow Society drove
30 of their finest to Mount Pulaski on Thursday. The members have
been having their annual meeting this year in Springfield. The cars
are from all over the U.S., with about half of them shipped to
Springfield for the July 14-17 event. At least two of the cars have
been priced over $600,000.
There was quite a large Pulaski turnout for the cars, as well as
many people coming from outside of town to see these magnificent
automobiles -- most of them being in top-notch condition. The
organizers were very pleased at the interest in the cars.
Pierce-Arrow group stayed for about two hours, visiting the state
in which Abraham Lincoln once practiced law along with Judge David
Davis, later appointed by President Lincoln to the U.S. Supreme
Court. They also toured the Mount
Pulaski Museum and were treated to
refreshments at the Salt Creek Attic antique furniture and gift
