America's first gasoline-powered
automobile was a three-wheel motor buggy - the 1891 Lambert car invented
by John Lambert. Later, after seeing the 1895 Times-Herald race, John Lambert
went on to produce four-wheel vehicles at his Buckeye Manufacturing plant.
John Lambert was a very successful
and prosperous businessman in Ohio City, who successfully tested and drove
a three-wheeled, surrey-topped, gasoline-powered runabout of his own design.
