The History of the Automobile

June 24 @ 10:30 11:30

La Marquise 1884. The oldest car in the world which is still running.

Most historians agree that Nicholas-Joseph Cugnot of France was the constructor of the first true automobile. Cugnot’s vehicle was a huge, heavy, steam-powered tricycle, and his model of 1769 was said to have run for 20 minutes at 2.25 miles (3.6 km) per hour while carrying four people. He could have had little idea how the Automobile was to develop and advance in following years.

This talk details how the automobile advanced from a simple idea to the developments in the 1920’s to today’s sophisticated vehicles.

It is an entirely non-technical talk and should be of considerable interest to the ladies in our group as well as their, perhaps, their more enthusiastic husbands!
