1910 Thomas Flyer Race Car
This 1910 Thomas Flyer has been restored to run the next Great Race. The car is now painted and made to look like the original 1907 car that won the very first Great Race from New York to Paris. The huge 6 cylinder car underwent a huge restoration to make the 2008 Great Race, before the race was postponed due to complications with the passage through China. The car is now complete, but this video was shot as soon as the car was roadworthy and before it was torn down for final paint and assembly. It was a special day to see this road veteran again blasting around town. These cars are awesome and you forget just how impressive they were until you see this beast roar to life and take to the highways. Time has change the styling of automobiles, but this car is absolutely timeless!
