Thank you gentlemen. I have found a few more pictures to post. This one features the tenor Tito Schipa and the soprano Margherita Salvi with a Pierce-Arrow.

Here is the tenor Leo Slezak at the wheel of an unidentified car. The scuttle ventilators look like two miniature versions of Mr E.M.Ginn's Expert gramophone horns.

The bass-baritone Michael Bohnen (1887-1965) seems to have had a taste for fast cars.
The first could be a Benz or a Mercedes, as the absence of front wheel brakes suggests a date prior to 1926 when the two companies amalgamated.
I do not recognise the second car or the female passenger.

Paul Whiteman clearly knew, and could afford, a good car when he saw one. Here we have a Cord L-29 and a Cadillac V-16.
Look at those fancy tyres on the Cord.

You must listen to Billy Murray's 1906 version of, "In My Merry Oldsmobile" while scrolling through this thread 8-)

Here is the Curved Dash Oldsmobile (1902), the purchase of which came with the privately published record from 1905 I think. I believe the EMG gramophone was not included.............

I imagine that the cost of shipping it over would be prohibitive. Plus, trying to register it here might be problematic because of our stringent safety requirements and emissions inspections. And the driver's view out of the right side would put me at a disadvantage with all the reckless maniacs on our highways today. Oh well, in my dreams(
