According to contemporary news accounts, Charleston, West Virginia had a "Self Propelled Vehicle" runnung around town in the 1860s, considerably predating that Johnnie-Come-Lately Selden in Rochester,NY, who only applied for his patent in 1879, didn't have it issued until 1895, and NEVER built an operating vehicle.

So Stick It, Rochester, you're Sucking Hind Tit when it comes to Cars.

"Divorace in W. Virginia"? Why yes, isn't he a Czech composer (1841-1904) who spent 1892-1895 in America studying American music? I'm pretty sure he spent some time in Charleston learning about what we now call Hillbilly Music, as some of his "American" compositions from that time contain some distinctly Appalachian themes.

It doesn't have anything to do with Cars, I know, but nobody ever sticks to the Topic on Topix. anyway.

Now, where were we?
