1933 Pierce Arrow 836, Club Sedan
For more than three decades the Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company of Buffalo, New York, was among the most respected and renowned automakers in America. Hard to believe the company responsible for producing the grandest of luxury cars began by building bird cages. From household products, the company turned to bicycles and then to automobiles shortly after the turn of the 20th century. Pierce-Arrow had the distinction of being the first automobiles to be used by the White House during the William Howard Taft administration in 1909. Unlike Packard, Pierce-Arrow refused to compromise on its luxury product closing its doors in 1938.
