Oldsmobile Pirate hits 54.38 mph in speed trials (1903)

It takes nattily attired insane gentleman to navigate a vehicle like this.  Ransom Olds’ Pirate race car was a stripped down version of the best selling car of the time, the Olds Curved Dash Runabout.  Those bullet shaped noses are oil tanks. This thing just looks like a blast to drive.
