On February 12, 1908, seventeen men set off from New York City on the first around-the-world automobile race in hopes of proving that the newly invented automobile was a practical, durable machine that could endure the demands of the future. This race was the inspiration for Hollywood movies and modern day ‘great races.’ In the picture above, is the 1917 Marmon that won the Great Race of 1995. Margaret Nava shows us this and many other nostalgic cars in Rio Rancho. See the Around Town Section of the Signpost on-line.
