Recommended Posts

From 1903 to 1912 when they went bankrupt, the Thomas Motor Co. of Buffalo,N.Y. built over 2,765 Thomas Flyers. A 1907 model was used in the Around the World race of 1908. Would anyone know if any of these are still in existance and are avaiable for sale in any condition? appreciate the help, Scott C.

Saw a Thomas Flyer at the Chickasha swap meet last year. It was the biggest one, with what I was told was a 900 cubic inch engine, and was in the process of being built up with new body starting from a bare frame and engine. It's owned by Harold Coker, who also owns a restored and running Thomas. There aren't many of these around.

At the high point of the Harrah Collection there were 15 Thomas automobiles from 1903-1912. Sure glad I was able to view that collection when Bill Harrah was still with us.
