Horseless Carriage Club to visit UCD

By Paul Dorn

The Santa Clara Valley Region chapter of the Horseless Carriage Club will display more than 45 antique vehicles from 3 to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 15, in Parking Lot 41 at UC Davis. The event is free and open to the public.

Club members will be available to describe their vehicles and answer questions, with support from UC Davis student members of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. The department of mechanical and aerospace engineering is hosting the event.

“We think it’s good to expose students to where we have been before, as they try to improve what we have now,” says Don Azevedo, a club member and 1975 graduate of UCD.

“Imagine cars without starters, with acetylene gas for headlights, with wood spoke wheels and skinny tires inflated to 75 psi, leather-covered seats stuffed with horse hair, simple carburetors, manually-advanced timers or distributors, progressive shift transmissions, wood frames, friction drive transmissions, big flywheels at the front of the engine, cast iron pistons and no balancing of rotating parts.”

The club dedicated to the preservation, restoration and enjoyment of automobiles from the “Brass Era.” It recognizes motor vehicles built before 1916, preserving “barn finds” or restoring vehicles without making modifications.
