Now that the Petersen Museum picked up their 'new' 1900 Smith form the Valet, our 1911 National is the oldest car at the L.A. Auto Show. This car ran in the 1st Indy 500 then moved west to Los Angeles and ran at the Motordrome (1st Board Track in America) then at a bunch of the Santa Monica Road Races.

The doc film WHERE THEY RACED: Speed Demons in the City of Angels features this car along with plenty of others and reunited the cars with the ghosts of the tracks they ran on.

Here's Vic Edelbrock Jr. with the car Roger Ward raced at 3rd & Fairfax - aka Gilmore Stadium...
