Here's one I think everyone will like. We've seen pics of Houdini in the car he bought in England in the early 1900s, but as far as I know, no one has ever identified the make. Well, according in the London Daily Mirror, it was a Humber.

Also, did Houdini have a car wreck in Oakland in 1912?

John Tarring of The Humber Register has helped me identify exactly what type of Humber Houdini owned. Even have a page from the 1904 Humber catalog.
