The REO Mountaineer endurance run from New York to San Francisco and back in 1906
Percy Megargel and David Fassett in the Bronx at the end of their 10-month, 11,000-mile trip in a 16-horsepower REO touring car.  Why did they do it? Well, Old Steady and Old Scout had just made an endurance run   http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2014/12/old...
Well, Old Steady and Old Scout had just made an endurance run http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2014/12/old-scout-and-old-steady-endurance-race.html and Megargel was one of the drivers! AND Ransom Olds had a reputation to create with the REO, now that he wasn't running Oldsmobile.
