I love the way the rear suspension works, with a solid axle mounted forward and up high, and then independant drive boxes going back for independant suspension AND a huge trunk (for the car's size). Definitely better than my Midget was!

And yeah, that engine was a jewel, far more sophisticated than any of it's competition.

1900's is right, Cadillac and Merc are wrong...Here's something else that might help: that exact model was made between 1903 and 1907.
