Everyone in the Great Race knows that two-time Great Race champion Howard Sharp loves old cars. The older the better. And over the years he has collected a number of pre-World War I cars that he figured he’d get around to restoring one day. But over the last couple of years he has parted with a few Brad Epple bought a 1916 Chalmers last year and Ted Stahl bought a 1916 Buick the year before that. And now Howard is selling another pre-war car that he believes could be a great rally vehicle in the Great Race one day. It is a 1915 Velie Big Six with a 34 horsepower 6 cylinder engine. It sports 34X4 tires on good wooden spoke wheels. If interested, call Howard at 585-738-1415.
