There were so many inventors at that time I am stumped. There is the "Brass era" but that doesn't help me any.

Inventor

Ok, Ok, Ok - since no - one else will step up

Selden. Can't find any record of him ever actually building a car, but he patented the idea of combining a gas engine with a carriage to get a self-propelled vehicle.

Ha Ha

I told you would get it Dave. By 1877 George B. Seldon had already re-designed the gasoline engine aiming for more horsepower with less weight. His design was a 2 stroke engine. He applied for a patent on a gasoline vehicle in 1879 with a brass model. He was granted a patent in 1895. This was after numerous other vehicles had been produced. He never actually built the vehicle until 1905. But with patent in hand, he collected some serious royalties from all the then automobile manufacturers. Here are some links to the story behind this, which I found interesting. Nolan

You're up Dave

I think you were asking me, I could have been reasonably priced, until Dave stepped in. I don't guess it's worth much now.

Trivia

I am a just a tad reluctant to post a question right now as I am scheduled to go in for surgery very early Wed morning (getting a humongous "C-Cup sized" "his-nia" fixed) so if no-one got the answer by Tuesday night, I'd leave the group hanging. Since that wouldn't be fair to the group, I'll toss it to whoever comes up with a good question first. (I'll be back on here by early next week and I'll take up challenges then) (I even had a good one for the next round!)

Being I have not read every post, I know shame on me, this might have been asked before.

Who had the first V-8 engine for sale in a car? What year was it? Where was it first unveiled?
three questions.
