1930 Willys Deluxe Sedan Model 98B about to be driven blindfolded by Billy Russell - America

A sign on top of this 1930 model Willys 6 Model 98B Deluxe Sedan says it is so easy to handle in heavy traffic, it can be driven blindfolded.
Parked under the Orpheum Theater marquee, a crowd gathers to see blindfolded Billy Russell, seen next to the driverís door, give it a try

The theatre itself in Springfield, IL, USA (between Chicago and St Louis) also a fascinating piece of history and at a cost of $2,000,000 in 1927 it was really quite something.
Unfortunately it was replaced by a bank in 1965.
