Recommended Posts

We had a great time at the launch party for CAR CRAZY: The Battle for Supremacy between Ford and Olds and the Dawn of the Automobile Age, Sunday in Newport, RI. These four cars came, and they were running -- and rides were given! I finally got to ride in a 1904 Curved Dash Olds, the model that raced in 1905 from New York City to Portland, Oregon, one of the narratives of Car Crazy (car courtesy of Audrain Automobile Museum). You can view that ride, and see my remarks, here. And check out the book, which is getting great reviews this week as it is published. "A must for car lovers," one publication, Kirkus Reviews, said. “The dawn of the auto age brought with it conflict, controversy, fear and excitement as ably illustrated in G. Wayne Miller’s book," wrote The Providence Journal. More on the book, including an excerpt, at the book site.
