The mighty Fiorenzo Cardinal Angelini...

Here's the 1929 Graham Paige, made in America, black sedan of Pope Pius XI from the papal motor fleet of Pope Pius XII.
Today you can see this auto in the underground Carriage Museum of the Vatican Museums.
This auto is most famous as it was used by Pope Pius XII when he went to the Basilica of San Lorenzo fuori le Mura as Rome had just been bombed. He arrived with his driver, Mons. Montini (future Pope Paul VI) and Fr. Fiorenzo Angelini, now a cardinal.
