Pancho Villa’s Ride? Car Parked 100 Years Over Old Tunnel in Mexico

1914 Mitchell has been parked 100 years
 

From Jerry Heasley

This 1914 Mitchell has been parked 100 years over an opening to a tunnel built in 1911 in Juarez, Mexico during the Mexican Revolution of 1910-1920.

Locals hid money and jewelry in this tunnel. Why was this giant touring car parked over the entrance to this tunnel? Seeking documentation this car was owned or used by Pancho Villa — governor of Chihuahua 1913-1914.
