Circa 1922 Paige 6-66 Daytona Roadster

The Paige Daytona was named for the beach where a stripped version of the car set a 102.8 mph stock-chassis record with Ralph Mulford at the wheel in 1921. I think we're still in Florida here but I haven't been able to pin the location down. The Tarragona Tower, with very similar stonework arches on either side, was built as gateway to an exclusive golf and country club community called Daytona Highlands, 'Florida's Suburb of Hills and Lakes', in the early twenties, but these vine-covered stones look like they've been there awhile. Maybe we're looking at Tarragona's inspiration?
