Are You My Ride? World’s Oldest Running Car

September 27, 2011 | 3:00 PM | Are You My Ride? | By Chad Hays

From futuristic concept cars to one-of-a-kind $8 million rides, we’ve told you about some pretty cool whips since we started Are You My Ride? several weeks ago. Now, we’re going back in time for a much less luxurious, but still cool ride this week.

A historic 1884 de Dion Bouton et Trepardoux Dos-a-Dos Steam Runabout, the world’s oldest running car, will be hitting the auction block next month. Since it’s steam powered, you can save on gas money, but be prepared to put in some serious elbow grease for your weekly trip to the store. The car takes half an hour to prepare to drive and you’ll have to water it every 20 miles. Needless to say, power steering is not included.

It’s expected to go for around $2 million at the RM Auctions event October 6-7 in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
