122 th anniversary of the birth of Charlie Chaplin in the sign of vintage cars

Tramp! Who does not? I remember one scene where he accidentally swallowed a whistle, and this made her the hiccups, and every time he delivered a sobbing whistle quite powerful. "Fiii", the first whistle, a beautiful woman turns around and gets angry with him, "fiii", yet another whistle, and a policeman accuses him of confusing the work, "fiii", yet another whistle and stop a taxi, then another taxi again, whose drivers, every time, sent to that country the poor Charlot.

Today, Saturday, April 16, 2011, celebrating the 122nd anniversary of the birth of Charlie Chaplin, the first Hollywood star, comic actor, dramatist, screenwriter, director, producer of the great cinema of consumption. Mustache, bowler hat and dressed in the unmistakable caricature of Charlie Chaplin, who on this occasion also received a personal clip of Google, really good time in giving us something original.

Have you seen it? If the answer is no, well, run to it because it's worth it. In this post you mention a curiosity while dedicated fans of vintage cars. That car was Charlie Chaplin? Given that a person who in the early '20s he signed a contract of more than $ 600,000 a year with a studio in Hollywood, he's had cars galore, and even costly.

But one in particular goes back to Chaplin, perhaps because it was the most widely used in his films or present in some photos over at the dawn of history, a Pierce Arrow Dual Cowl Phaeton 4-door, 1929. The car was produced until 1938, in the following picture you should recognize it easily.

He rode an eight-cylinder engine from 132 hp to the top of the range was able to push it up to the maximum speed of 185 km / h. The price was $ 10,000, and from what I've read, it was a figure that took away even the most affluent. Not bad for Charlie Chaplin!
