Notches for the Green Dragon

This is one of those great articles that provides color to the early days of auto racing and barnstorming tours. This piece describes an Oldfield stop in Reno, Nevada. Cowboys there circled the car because a local promoter had spread rumors about how many men it had killed. They came to see the notches on the Peerless Green Dragon. Not finding any, they warned Oldfield that if he wanted anyone to take him and his program seriously, he had better file a notch for each man the machine had consumed.
