Autotrivia Quiz – Friday June 15 – June 21, 2012


Last week I wrote of an American visionary who built a road-going sports car which was very advanced for its day.  Like Colin Chapman’s Lotus cars you could buy his sports car as a kit, or as a turnkey for a few dollars more.

The designer won at Indianapolis four times, and the proud boast was that it was quicker than the Jaguar XK 120.  I asked who was that man?  It was Frank Kurtis who made the Kurtis-Kraft vehicles.

So to this week.  Which father took his daughter’s name to sell the cars he was racing in the early 1900’s?
