This 1909 Schacht Runabout Model K was one of the star exhibits at the recent celebration of 150 Years of Transport. This was held at the Bong Bong Racecourse, just outside Bowral, in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia, organised by the Berrima District Historical Vehicle Club. In the annals of transport, this was the next step from the horse drawn carriage, as seen in my previous picture. Please view larger for detail.
Schacht was an American manufacturer of automobiles, trucks and fire trucks from 1904 to 1940. The company was started by William and Gustav Schacht in Cincinnati, Ohio. There were some 8,000 automobiles produced from 1904 to 1914, with truck and fire truck production continuing until 1940. (Wikipedia).
