1908 New York to Paris Auto Race
Featuring the Winning Car: 1907 Thomas Flyer

In 1908 in the middle of winter, six cars from around the world embark on the most grueling journey of all time, the New York to Paris automobile race. It’s a remarkable story of man and machine against unimaginable odds, complete with maps of the route. It features the only American entry, the Museum’s 1907 Thomas Flyer that won the race.
