And BTW, the chopped Silver Arrows came a little bit later when Bill Mitchel pulled a Riviera off the assembly line and had it customized the way he wanted it: 1963 Buick Riviera Silver Arrow I | Conceptcarz.com

XP-715 they were first called the "Silver Arrow" and also "LaSalle II" I think but those had a chopped top roof line. Not sure exactly on this one other than the concept XP-715.

496CHEVY3100 first automobiles were steered with a tiller, but in 1894, Alfred Vacheron took part in the ParisRouen race with a Panhard 4 hp model which he had fitted with a steering wheel.[1] That is believed to be one of the earliest employments of the principle.[2]

From 1898, the Panhard et Levassor cars were equipped as standard with steering wheels. Charles Rolls introduced the first car in Britain fitted with a steering wheel when he imported a 6 hp Panhard from France in 1898.[3] Arthur Constantin Krebs replaced the tiller with an inclined steering wheel for the Panhard car he designed for the 1898 ParisAmsterdam

boothboy No more guesses?
Too hard?
Can't remember because your too old?
Wishing it was about drag racing because you can get the races on your tv?
Too upset to answer because you just heard that Honey Boo Boo has to go on a diet?
Too upset because your Sweety says YOU have to go on a diet?
Had the answer but your dog ate your homework?

If no more replies, I'll give the answer this evening.
