Building on the unplanned success of 2022’s event, even less planning was done for our 2023 event and the result was even greater success. Our only planned activity was to participate in a small town parade. The parade was canceled over fear of Canadian wildfire smoke (it barely materialized). With no fixed plans, we were free to create an epic road adventure on the fly, enjoy a nostalgic return to


1903 DE DION BOUTON PARIS-MADRID The DeDion Bouton company was famously founded in 1883 after Jules-Albert de Dion commissioned Georges Bouton and Charles Trépardoux build a toy locomotive model for him. By the turn of the century DeDion was the worlds largest automobile manufacturer and its engines were used by a multitude of other makes (some claim as many as 150). After building Bloody Mary, I was inspired to go

THE MIDDLE CHILD The GN 200 Mile Racer was my second car. My accidental discovery of CycleKarts, as the Stevensons defined them, occurred when I was looking for ideas to build a GN – something I had idly fantasized about since my teens. The time was now! (then) but I chickened out and found more sensible inspiration in the Peugeot Quadrilette.  Building the Quadrilette bolstered my confidence and I plunged


Gipsy was born of malfeasance and negligent ambition. She was the direct product of an intentional disregard for the rule of normalcy and decency. What started as a good-intentioned desire to share in motorsports activities with my offspring quickly devolved into a Rainier-fueled descent into debauchery and stupidity of a magnitude rarely resulting in anything other than financial ruin and medical debt.

The effort resulted in the 1962 Century 21 World’s Fair (think iconic “Space Needle”).  Seattle is also a city of skeptics – the ones here long enough


1911 FIAT S74 CORSA A typical racing giant of its era, the S74 was powered by a 14 litre four cylinder engine. Curb weight was 2755 lbs and a top speed of just over 100MPH was claimed. The S74 was raced with great success both in Europe and America. I selected the S74 as my Edwardian because I have long been fascinated by FIAT and Torino in general but especially
