2008 Astra XE
Default Re: Your Astra in the World



From my Instagram:

#Saturn Astra in front of some #Indianapolis #automotive #history #Stutz Motor Company built (arguably) #americasfirstsportscar there. And the first Stutz Bearcat was built in a smaller building across the street. That car placed 11th in the first #indy500 #May #1911


The building was the Stutz factory up until the depression took them out. Eli Lily used the factory for packaging for a rather long time. In the 1990s it was bought by its current owners. Now it is really nice offices and artist studios. But the owner keeps part of his car collection there. (His collection includes one of every model Stutz)

Not many people realize Indianapolis was not far behind Detroit for car manufacturing in the early days of the car.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
