McKeen Motor Car “Cuyamaca” Fund Raising

Thank you all for donating, but we are still not there.  We need to raise more to reach $10,000, and so far, with a few outside check donations, we have reached $3,400, plus a pledged $1,000 for the last part of the fund raising.  To donate, and to learn more about the project, click here.

This car is one of three McKeen Cars still around, of which, of 150 were built, and recent research suggests this car, the “Cuyamaca” may be the oldest vehicle in the world (excluding boats which were more aqua-dynamic,) to display aerodynamic design.  It was till 26 years later that Union Pacific’s M-10000 would be completed, which coined the term “Streamline.”  This McKeen Car is a rich part of history, not only for San Diego, but for the world, as a few motor cars were sold to railroads in Australia, Mexico, Cuba, and Canada.
