Not quite in time for the recent Annual Fall Car Cruise in Escalon was this collection of vintage, classic and antique automobiles now in the front display case at the Escalon Historical Museum.

Among the cars are a 1937 Cord, a silver Duesenberg, a “solid gold Cadillac,” a Packard Roadster, a 1923 Maxwell, a Rolls Royce, and an REO Speed Wagon. These Avon collectible cars are only part of the collection owned by Arlene Rasters, a former Avon representative.

The glass and ceramic “bottles” contained aftershave and cologne. If anyone is interested in purchasing one or more of these or other Avon collectible containers call Arlene at 838-7127 or leave word at the museum, 838-8070. Open hours for the museum are Wednesday 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free.
