Horseless Carriage Club SOS

IMG_7021

Friday afternoon I received an e-mail from our Model A club president saying the Horseless Carriage Club was looking for more show cars for their exhibit at the Museum of Transportation in St Louis. The cavalry came with a flock of Model A’s and other usual suspects. The star of the show came flying in at 18 MPH on all cylinders (one). The owner said the 1903 automobile built by the St Louis Motor Carriage Co was not designed to be faster than horses but just go further than horses. It is really cool so if you are not familiar with the car check out the below video. Teddy Roosevelt visited the show to see how America’s auto industry was progressing (above image)
