Let's Roll in a Pilain Vintage Car

The French car company Rolland Pilain toots it own horn with the slogan, 'An Ace of a car - The car for aces.' ( L'As des voiture - La voiture des as)

Emile Pilain built the French Ford T's in the early 1900's. This 25 year old from Lyon loved to test, tinker, and build his dreams.

The most popular 'Ferrari' of this era was the Rolland Pilain C23 (shown on the above vintage postcard). This car motored around after it's launch in 1905. About 10,000 were produced! A few still exist and cruise around French motorways. I would like to be in the driver's seat!
