As classic car enthusiasts I think that we are all just a little bit history buff too. I mean let’s face it cars are history on wheels. They all tell a story about a certain place and time. So for all you history buffs out there I give you this week in automotive history.
Corvair Name Registered: GM registers the Corvair name for its new rear-engine compact car. The Corvair was the only American-made, mass-produced passenger car to come with a rear-mounted, air-cooled engine.
Ford Builds First Model T: The first Model T was built at Henry Ford’s Piiquette Avenue Plant in Detroit, although it didn’t leave the factory until September 27.
Oldest Auto Club Formed: C. Harrington Moore and Frederick R. Simms found Automobile Club of Great Britain and Ireland. It would become Royal Automobile Club, the world's oldest auto club.
