    The 1910 Massapequa Sweepstakes Trophy Makes an Appearance

    In September 1, 2008, I described a dashboard plaque that was provided by the Cole Motors Company to celebrate their victory in the 1910 Massapequa Sweepstakes, simultaneously with the Vanderbilt Cup Race. The plaque contains an embossing of the huge "Massapequa Sweepstakes Trophy" that was given to Cole for winning the race.

    Vanderbilia: The 1910 Cole Plaque

    I have an embossed shield with a pressed design on it that says "Massapequa Sweepstakes in Vanderbilt Cup Race Trophy 1910" with the embossing of what appears to be a trophy with a race car and driver on top and below the trophy it says "Won by Cole 30" 126.4 Miles Time 138 min 4.32
