The 1889-90 flu pandemic was the first pandemic to spread around the world, thanks to railway and steamships. Were automobiles just for the rich elite way back then?

Chevrolet 428?? by [email protected]
Yes it was in the Bonneville. You could get a dealer option/install for your Firebird, the Formula 400 cars in 68 and I think in 69 as well. I've seen a 68 Formula Firebird with a 428 Ram Air 4 speed at a car show and the owner told me that it was installed by the dealer.
