For Sale-One Slightly Used Racing Car: One would not normally think of the Indianapolis Speedway as being in the used racing car sales business, but the advertisement, found in The Motor Age, December 4, 1919 issue, tells the end of a very interesting story.

The 1905 Thomas Flyer Vanderbilt Cup Racer:
The E.R. Thomas Company of Buffalo, New York, built this monster of a 60 h.p. 6 cylinder racer with hopes of entering it in the 1905 Vanderbilt Cup Race. Specifications of the car are hard to come by, but we do know that it had a 750 c.i. engine with a 5.38″ bore x 5.50″ stroke and featured a 96 inch long hood. If that dimension is correct, and since the hood is about half of the length of the distance between the axles, the wheelbase must have been about 190 inches long.

Perhaps a Brandy will Calm Your Motoring Nerves Sir?

While we do not advocate drinking and driving, it looks like drinking and riding might have been the order of the day as seen here some 110 years ago. This photo of a 1903 – 04 Winton and its crew of riders was captioned as being taken in Plainfield, New Jersey, and it appears the butler was serving a round to a few of the riders in the car. Much more info and photos about the Winton @ http://theoldmotor.com/?p=93685
