They were built before the Duryea brothers built theirs in 1893.

Bob - both of those guys were playing with, and had built cars before Duryea - but not commercially

You are right, they didn't sell them commercially, but Duryea and Elwood Haynes were Bickering on who built the first gasoline powered car. Haynes talked one of these guys into not saying anything. The Duryea brothers did not sell their first car until 1896.
The two I'm looking for are known to have built gas powered cars first, at the time no one was making cars to sell, of the ones I have listed or am looking for. Because of the fight between Duryea and Haynes which did not happen until 1894 No one remembered the work of the other two as they were not publicists in any way, and their claims were completely lost in the angry bickering.

That is until I brought it up. LOL

Thanks Bob, I'm still kicking. Only took about 5 minutes on Google, then another 30 to read a bit about them.

Ok, Same topic. Lambert & Nadig were two of the early(before1893)inventors. Who did Bob leave out of the group of documented pioneers. Who, what, when, where? Oh, this is an interesting story.
