The World’s First Car Ad

From an 1898 “Scientific American.” Cost? $1,000. Which equals about $25,000 in 2012 money.

The first Winton motor carriage was purchased on March 24th, 1898, according to Wikipedia. Winton sold 22 cars that year.

Nice headline. I imagine that thing moving at 20 mph would have been pretty scary.
