This 1908 Stanley Steamer appeared at a classic-car festival in Baltimore. This is the first time I have seen a steam-powered car. It is fairly quiet, unless you blow the whistle, which sounds as loud as a train.

I notice that the driver has a fire extinguisher next to him. Probably for a good reason. :-D

I guess you haven't seen The Great Race...There was a Stanley Steamer in that movie.  Still, that's a great-looking example of a true classic you've got there...Hope you enjoyed the ride.

jay lenno has a few really nice steam cars in his collection,if you go on youtube you can see him driving them or watch this and he shows two of them and drives them [link]
Fire extinguisher ready on the passenger seat....
But yes, I've never seen a steam powered car in my life either. I know there were some, but I've never seen one in action. Thanks for sharing.
