American Cars in Indo-China.
The New York Times
May 26, 1918
The American automobile has forced itself into the Saigon market since the advent of the European war, and people often refer to its increased sale as the "American invasion," says United States Consul Horace Remillard. At the beginning of 1915, he reports, there were but two American automobiles in Saigon out of a total of 647 machines, the remainder being nearly all French cars. Of the 708 automobiles toward the close of 1917, seventy-eight were American. Many French automobiles have deteriorated and have been replaced by American.
