H. D. Hughes, formerly of Antioch and now residing in Gurnee, is the owner of probably one of the most unique automobiles in existence. Mr. and Mrs. Hughes spend much of their time in traveling via automobile, and Mr. Hughes has built a machine to meet all their travel requirements.
The machine is practically a bungalow on wheels. The body is made over from a Red Cross ambulance. The rear quarter of the ambulance body cut off and mounted on a 1921 Ford chassis. Within the car is room for a bed, a folding table, kerosene stove, two large storerooms, capable of holding a week's supply of food, and many other conveniences only to be had in this machine. Lace curtains adorn the windows, and they are screened in, but there is weather-proof curtains also in case of severe weather.
