1920's / 1930's Gangsters
With true artistic license we stretch the era of romanticized gangsters and glamourous flappers of the 1920’s. We encourage the rumors that abound of local hideouts used by the infamous Al Capone.
National Prohibition was initiated to conserve wheat during World War 1 and didn’t ban private ownership and consumption of low alcohol content beverages, however, local governments imposed stricter laws, leading to secretive production, sales, and transportation of the now restricted beverages, as well as the creation of secretive “Speakeasy” clubs in which to consume them.
The gangsters were accompanied by the flapper, who flaunted her disapproval of all things considered proper. They wore short loose-fitting dresses, cut their hair short, wore makeup, and took up drinking and smoking. Together, the gangsters and flappers are recognized as icons of the prohibition era.
Drive out of the end of the era with our 1934 Chevy that was found in an old barn in the Northwoods, somewhere on the possible route from Canada to Chicago… Feel like real gangsters and flappers when posing next to our car, with money bags from The Wisconsin Dells Bank, replica Tommy guns, and bottles of booze at your side.
