The Very Oldest

Henry Ford may be attributed to the invention of the automobile, but it just isn’t the case.

This week, the oldest running car in the world, a steam driven 1884 De Dion Bouton Et Trepardoux was auctioned off for $4.62 million dollars.

It’s pretty amazing that this 127 year old automobile is still around, alive and working. Pre-dating Gottlieb Daimler’s auto by at least two years, this French beauty may well be worth the trunkload of cash that was paid for it.
