We are not talking about your basic Model A here. Through the years the age limit on the Great Race has been raised to where you can compete in a vehicle today as new as 1969. But to get that age factor that helps with winning the event, many folks have gone back to the pre-1920s automobiles.

Just in the race this year we have a 1907 Renault, a 1914 Model T, three 1916 Hudsons, a 1916 Packard, a 1917 Peerless and a 1917 Hudson. And last year’s event was won by a 1911 Velie.

Here’s some information on the vehicle:

– Engine: inline OHV six cylinder, 224 cu in, 45 BHP
– Speedster body on 115 in wheelbase
– Three speed transmission (no over-drive), shaft drive
– Rear only brakes
– Electrical is 6v+12v (Two 6v batteries are wired in series and parallel so the 6v stuff can run and the 12v stuff can run too)
– Both regular plate windshield and monocle screen too.
– This car ran 1995 Canada to Mexico Great Race and finished
– Car does 55+ mph; ready to go.

Here is a list of items repaired/upgraded while Bryan has owned it:
Rear diff, pressure check radiator, rebuilt water pump, updated to 6v/12v system , upgraded gauges (water temp), upgraded speedo to Timewise – the car is wired for a Timewise (car comes with sensor, bracket, magnets, wires, etc.), but the speedo does not come with the car).

You can reach Bryan at [email protected] or 214-454-7417 if you are interested in the car.

  • The subject of gambling has indeed become one of the most pining topics of conversation in Indonesia.
    Not on your own legitimate problems, in Indonesia gambling is underestimated from various aspects ranging from culture, religion, social, even people who feign gambling
    always have a negative connotation regardless
    of whether the person is successful or not in this industry.

    In contrast to developed countries that are more open to
    the momentum of the gambling industry. There,
    professional gambling players are considered celebrities, are renowned and are covered in television shows.

    Hailed and inspired to many who axiom it, what a sight that is
    certainly lame in comparison.

    It is undeniable, like viewed from an point toward tapering off of view,
    gambling games both offline and online have evolved into a thing upheaval
    that sustain many parties. Not by yourself
    the organizers but with those who feint it and some
    of the parties in the region of it such as people
    who feint in the sports ground of assistance technology and admin who acquire the tax.

    Like any other situation in the world, gambling comes subsequently its own risks and rewards.
    No one can truly break out losses or continue to make
    profits in his business, there are always unavoidable losses and profits will continue to be pursued.
    What we can reach for concern is to find the
    best strategy to minimize losses and bump profits at any time.
