Horseless Carriages

Cars came from all around the country for the National Horseless Carriage Convention here in Ocala, FL on 2/17/08- 2/22/08.  These cars have been around since the 1910ís, which almost make them over one hundred years old.  The cars are powered by steam, and sometimes gasoline.  Some features on these cars are the wooden hubcaps, lantern lights, and the steam powered engine.  These cars are used around the world for tours and a club called the Horseless Carriage Club of America.  These cars have been restored for their use around the world.  All automobiles are Horseless Carriages, but HCCA has defined the Horseless Carriage as any pioneer gas, steam and electric motor vehicle built or manufactured prior to January 1, 1916.
