The 2013 special edition ornament is inspired by the Kline Kar in the collection of the Virginia Historical Society (asccession no. 2007.118). The automobile was assembled in Richmond, Virginia, in 1918 and sold for $2,000 to A.D. Price, an African American funeral parlor owner. The engine broke down in 1923 at 14,500 miles, but the family kept the car until 1972. The Kline Kar Company relocated to Richmond from York, Pennsylvania, in 1912 and assembled about 2,500 vehicles before closing in 1923, a victim of not adopting the assembly line method used by manufacturers like Ford Motor Company.
