A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Automotive Engineer Collection - The love affair with the automobile is contagious and shows no signs of ending. Auto racing continues as the most intense and major proving ground for progress in the industry, ever since the first cumbersome steam powered devices appeared in the early 1800’s. Among early automotive engineers, Henry Ford surely stands out. His first design was the Quadricycle in 1896. His second was the first commercial automobile, a delivery wagon in 1900. He is credited with an array of automotive engineering firsts; his last triumph was his "en block", or one piece, V-8 engine. The actual term, "automotive", engineer, was coined by Elmer Sperry in 1916 to represent any form of self powered vehicle. This came at the founding of the SAE, the Society of Automotive Engineers. The legendary car designer Carroll Shelby was the man behind the Cobra, the fastest mass-produced car ever made; zero to sixty in 3.9 seconds. Shelby began his career as a chicken farmer, then pursued hot-rod drag racing becoming a world-class race driver, and later an automotive engineer. The industry is complete with a multitude of niche products, most coming from the "eureka" experience of individual mechanics working on their dreams and passions. Automotive Engineers!
