1912 Little Roadster: Antique Speed

1912 Little Roadster

I’ll admit it, I’ve fallen in love with our Singer SM roadster. We’ve had faster, more comfortable, and safer cars, but put the windshield down and suddenly 30 mile per hour feels incredibly fast. I think I’ve been bit by the roadster bug and for some reason I want to experience older roadsters to see if they provide that same false sense of speed and the rush that accompanies it. This 1912 Little Roadster is 103 years old, making our Singer seem like a very modern car, which leaves me wondering if it would provide a rush or if it is simply too old to be thrilling. It hasn’t been on the road for many years, so I’m sure it is going to need a lot of work before it will be providing any thrills but is surprisingly solid and complete for its age. Find it here on craigslist in Savannah, Georgia for $9,500. Thanks to Robert R for another great tip!

    I bet 35 mph (assuming it’ll go that fast) is exciting and a little (pun kind of intended) scary. neat old car, a manufacturer I’d never heard of.

    Beautiful car. I love the history. Someone will save it. I would get it running and driving safe and drive it everywhere (just not on the highway ).
