1902 Oldsmobile Pirate Beach Racer (Replica)
Ransom E. Olds was anxious to make a name for his cars so in April of 1902 he took the Pirate to the hard-packed sand of Florida's Ormond Beach. The Pirate became the first car to make a timed run during Florida's first unofficial speed trials. In March 1903, Olds brought the Pirate back for the first official time trials, and driver Horace Thomas drove the Pirate to a record speed of 54.38 mph in the gasoline-powered 1,000 pound class. The Pirate was essentially a stripped down version of the Olds Curved Dash Runabout, America’s best-selling car.
