Peter Helck – 1916 Pikes Peak – Mulford’s Record Climb: Pikes Peak is a 14,115 foot high mountain located in the Front Range of the Rocky Mount-ains and is 10 miles west of Colorado Springs, Colo. It was first opened up to travelers in 1890 with a cog railway and also a carriage road. By 1916 Spencer Penrose whose resort and hotel was nearby, had along with his associates constructed the new modern “Auto Highway” all the way to the top of the mountain.

That same year was the inaugural running of The Pike Peak Hill Climb promoted by Penrose, which attracted among others Ralph Mulford and his Hudson Super 6, Barney Oldfield and a Delage along Hughes and Buzane in Duesenbergs.

Mulford and his Hudson were clearly the class of the field that year on the Peak. In his rapid and skillfull climb on the first day of competition, he bested all by setting a time of 18:24.70, a record time that stood for eight years.

On the second days free-for-all climb that attracted fifteen starters who were forced to battle with very poor weather conditions, Rea Lentz’s Romano Special, a 125 h.p. aero-engine hybrid out-powered Mulford’s 76 h.p. Hudson to finish at 20:55.60. Mulford’s skill and his faithful Hudson allowed him to finished the days climb in second place, forty-five seconds behind.

Automotive Jewelry – Michael Furman: Mascots and badges are a unique art form that have identified automotive marques since the late 19th century. At first, these elements appeared as script affixed to the exposed radiator core of the early cars. As the front of the cars gained presence, notably the radiator shell, it’s surfaces and cap, there were now new places to express marque identity. The script was joined by badges, which were then joined by Moto Meters and mascots. As the functionality of the Moto Meter was replaced with a dashboard mounted temperature gauge, the mascots flourished and are the basis for this new book. SEE MORE on The Old Motor.
