Everitt-Metzger-Flanders Company built a series of light-eight runabouts and touring models from 1908 to 1912. The cars featured a 7.2 litre water-cooled, six-cylinder engine which was coupled to a three-speed transmission and shaft drive. This example has been actively campaigned and recently restored, winning the Belnap Cup for Oustanding Racer at New Hampshire International Speedway.
History of E-M-F Racer #33
This car #37361 along with two other E-M-F racers was sent to Savannah, Georgia, to participate in the Tiedeman Cup Race of November 27, 1911. That year Savannah hosted the Vanderbilt Cup Race. The Tiedeman Cup Race was the preliminary event for 'small' cars. E-M-F #33 finished third with the other two E-M-F entries finishing first and second. The car was driven at Savannah by Jack Tower.
The car was first restored in 1989 and has participated in numerous vintage racing events including a re-enactment of the Great Savannah Races. Other events that the car has been involved in include: the Mount Equinox Hillclimb, the Mount Washington Hillclimb, the Vintage Celebration at NHIS, the fall meet at Lime Rock, and the Miller Club Meets at the Milwaukee Mile. In 2003 the car was certified by AACA in class 24B.
