At the turn of the 20th century, race cars were big, heavy, fast, and extremely dangerous. Eventually, those cars died off, making way for lighter, smaller vehicles. But at least one monster survived.
caught up with Eddie Verisford, keeper of this 1908 Mors, for its latest video, and it's an interesting look into the world of racing back when the car was still a fairly new thing. There's no seatbelts, airbags, or even doors. The cars were fast, and the racing was truly terrifying. People got hurt all the time, and many died behind the wheel.
But, as Verisford explains, the exhilaration you get from driving a car like this is unlike anything else. The torque is immense, and the feeling of air flowing through the open cockpit. For some people, it's worth the risk, even today.
