Ner-a-Car Pictures

A fantastic old picture sent in by Gina Wesley. It shows Cannonball Baker’s Ner-a car dealership. E.G. Baker was an early motorcycling pioneer who set dozens of cross-country records riding a variety of motorcycles and sidecars. He also was known for record-setting runs in automobiles. By the time he retired from his pursuit of records, it was estimated that Baker had ridden or driven more than five million miles. During his exhausting career, Baker made more than 143 attempts at a variety of timed, long-distance records, including his most famous transcontinental and three flags (Canada to Mexico) attempts.

A great picture.

  1. Very cool photo! The original (US) version of the Neracar was built from 1920 – 1923, and in late 1922 Cannonball Baker rode one from New York to Los Angeles. On the run he avearged 75 mpg – not sure wht this means for his “100 miles to the gallon” advertising!
