It's 1912 and you are kerpuffling down Main in your new Stutz Bearcat
, the envy of all who witness your ride
. The "dog house" hood, open bucket seats, a tiny "monocle" windscreen in front of the driver, and a cylindrical fuel tank on a short rear deck are attracting stares from passersby.
Plenty of people will come to love this vehicle, including Mr. Burns
, Jay Leno
, Hank and Johnny of 1971's "Bearcats!
" TV show,
to name a few.
The 1911 Bearcat raced in the very first Indy 500 -- see footage of the actual race!
It's in there somewhere in all that dust (how could they see?!). With a respectable finish of 11th place, it was deemed "The Car that made good in a day."
Hear the kerpuffle. Watch it go!
Wish driving my Subaru was that cool.
