A Special Class for 2013 will be Electric Cars: Past, Present and Future.
Electric cars were popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. At that time, electric cars were favored since they provided a level of comfort and ease of operation that could not be met by gasoline powered cars. By the late 1930s, the popularity of electric cars had declined, mostly affected by the availability of mass produced gasoline cars, electric starters and quicker refueling times.
Some of the American manufacturers of electric cars in the early 20th century were Anthony Electric, Baker, Columbia, Anderson, Fritchle, Studebaker, Riker and Melburn. If you have an electric car that you would like to be considered, please click here to go to our nomination form. We welcome other car nominations as well.
