I bet you cant do any better

  1. This is targeted at at the people getting on here and saying that this car is slow. The people that if they took a look under the the hood of this car couldnt tell the difference between a crankshaft and a camshaft, I present you with a challenge. I bet that you could not build a car that would even turn over, let alone produce 35 horsepower and thats with modern technology. Now think about doing it 102 years ago, how can you not have respect for that?<!-- Signature -->

    Yea.. I wish that stupid people that make fun of cars like this could be banned from good sites like this. Then they talk about how the McLaren F1 could kick its ass. Well the F1 would still be years away if it weren't for cars like this. So the whole point of this post is that I agree with you both.<!-- Signature -->

    I agree. Considering that cars were almost unheard of at this point, 35hp was what supercars were made of. The 53.4mph is particularly awesome condsidering that cars around this time were stuck at about 30mph. Consider this, you can be caught SPEEDING on most in city roads in this 102yr old vehicle. Freaky.
