By the way she was briefly employed as a truck driver so her knowledge of motors extended to ground level as well as aircraft engines. as far as personal cars, Amelia owned a Kissel kar- now in a museum in Denver area, and her last motor mount, a Cord model 8l0 , vintage l936, both Yellow by the way, this car still exists also and will be used as a prop in the upcoming (Amelia) film with Hillary Swank, What a car! The 8l0 differs from the better-known 8l2 in that it lacks outside exhaust pipes.
