A of the Day
This day in Automotive History June 24, 1900  Oliver Lippincott became the first motorist in Yosemite National Park, when he drove his Toledo Automobile Company-built car to the South Rim from Flagstaff. Lippincott would start a trend with his visit, as motorists increasingly chose to drive to National Parks, avoiding the more time-consuming train and coach rides. By 1901, a number of other motorists had made the trip to Yosemite, mostly in Locomobiles. June 24, 1928 The rocket-powered Opel RAK 3 debuted on a section of railroad track near Hanover, Germany. With approximately 20,000 spectators looking on, the rocket car recorded a rail-speed record of 157mph on its first run. The result of a rather odd experiment, the RAK 3 carried a caged cat as its driver. Tragically, on the car's second run, too many of its rockets fired at once and the car crashed, killing its feline pilot.
