Additional Details:
The famous old ""999"" did a spectacular 91.4 miles per hour with Henry Ford at the ""tiller"" in 1904. He broke the mile-a minute record on the winter ice of Lake St. Clair, crashing through a snowdrift and narrowly missing a marooned schooner. Barney Oldfield famous driver, won his first race in the ""999"" because he had never driven before and didn't know how to operate the brakes
