Early 1900s Race Car
This is an example of a race car from the early 20th century. It is built around a working (running) inline 4 cylinder engine with working (properly timed) valves. There is a battery box in the rear that drive a motor that powers the engine.
The working steering is via a pitman arm underneath the car, in an attempt to have the steering be perido accurate.
The valves are operated off of the cam, through the pushrods, and the 'springs' are the small white elastic bands.
