TROPHIES AT PALACE SHOW
The New York Times
December 26, 1909
Cups and Prizes Won by Foreign Cars Will be Exhibited.
One of the interesting exhibits in connection with the Importers' Automobile Salon in Grand Central Palace during the first week in January will be that of cups and trophies. There is hardly an agent for a foreign car who has not one or two of these, while several are the owners of many trophies won in competition, of national character. E. R. Hollander will have on exhibition the handsome trophy won in Atlanta in November by Louis Strang. This will be the first show at which the cup has been on exhibition, and it will be there along with several other famous trophies captured in Fiat cars. At the Lancia space will be seen the light car trophy won in Savannah by William Hilliard. At the Isotta, Hotchkiss, De Dion, and Renault booths will be seen a number of famous trophies, the latter showing the trophy won in the first continuous twenty-four hour race ever held in this country. At the other spaces those which will be shown are the Panhard, Delahaye, Delaunay, Bellville, Clement-Bayard, and C. G. V. cars.
For several months the importers have been preparing for the show. They have imported models which they will show along with their stock models, and are sparing no expense to make their exhibit the feature of the show.
