  1. Dear Ms. Dunbar.

    I have begun reading the “White Lightning” series. So far, it’s great and the characters are interesting.

    I hope you will forgive me, but I have been an automotive journalist for nearly 20 years and I couldn’t help but note some errors in your vehicle descriptions.

    First and foremost, the Ford Model T Runabout. The Model T Runabout was the base version of the car. It was not a truck. It had a single bench seat and no provisions for other passengers. It had a very small trunk located behind the passenger compartment. Of course, there’s nothing in the rule books that says the trunk could not have been replaced with a small flatbed or pickup body and Model Ts were legendary for the adaptations made by owners. However, one does not put a Model T into “park” because there is no stationary gear. For the entire run of the Model T from 1908 to 1927, it had a two-speed planetary transmission controlled by two pedals on the floorboard. The pedal on the far right was the brake pedal. The Model T did not have brakes as we know them today. The brake pedal tightened bands around the transmission to stop the car. Fuel flow and acceleration were controlled by a lever on the steering column.

    It appears likely, given the time specified in the opening of “Wooden Nickels” and a description of Hattie Malloy starting the vehicle, that the Ford in the book must have been no older than seven years. Ford Model Ts were hand-cranked until 1919.

    Volvo was not established as an automobile company until 1927. Alfa Romeos were not sold in the United States until the mid-1950s. Triumph did not enter the U.S. market until after World War II. Alfa Romeo and Triumph did have passenger cars during this period but total production was fairly small and there is no record of any of them being sold in America in those years.

    To be honest, in 1926 most vehicles sold in the U.S. were American-made. Chevrolet was already outselling Ford by then and Chrysler had been producing cars under its own name since 1924. The Dodge Brothers began automotive production in 1914. Other popular brands at the time were Pierce Arrow and Essex. Cadillacs were the preferred vehicles for gangsters because of their powerful engines. Buick had been around since 1904 and Oldsmobile began production in 1897 and was the best-selling car in America in 1903 and 1904.

    There certainly were foreign brands in the U.S. during this period, but they were almost all high-end luxury vehicles from companies like Rolls-Royce and Hispano-Suiza. German-made vehicles weren’t all that popular because of Word War I and the shambles left by the Versailles treaties.

    This is an incredibly small nit to pick and it certainly hasn’t spoiled my enjoyment of your books. But it is something to keep in mind for future volumes.

    • Thank you for that information. I’ll claim artistic liberty on those, since this series is alternative history/fantasy. Although we made quite a bit of effort to be accurate, neither of us are experts. I’m glad you enjoyed the series, and we’ll make a note for additional books.
