Anyhow, the Taylor gang likely went out to California to take "Peggy the Flying Red Horse" (a suped up Model T Ford) to participate in a parade. The Taylors and friends who helped build her took Peggy all over the United States to participate in parades representing the Taylor Brothers Garage and the American Legion. The nickname Peggy comes from the Mobile Oil Pegasus logo. I am not sure that this was the reason for their trip to California in 1938, but after reading an old article from the Cincinnati Enquirer that is my guess. (Thanks, Cousin Margaret, for sharing this clipping via Ancestry.)
Here is a picture of Peggy that belonged to Grandad. Isn't she a marvel? You can still visit Peggy in downtown Lawrenceburg, IN at the American Legion, where she is on display.
