Between "Tonight Show" tapings, Jay Leno manages to be the maven of antique
cars and will serve as grand marshal for the National Auto100 Parade in Detroit on

at's all the hoopla about?
In 1896, brothers Charles
E. and J. Frank Duryea es-
Vta blished the Duryea Mo-
tor Wagon Co. in Springfield,
Mass., and the first automobile
company in America was born.
The company manufactured 13
identical machines, the first in-
stance of serial production of
American cars. Today, the only
surviving one of these little horse-
less-carriage wonders is on exhibit
at Henry Ford Museum as part of
the "Automobile in American Life”
But what if the Duryea broth-
ers, on that immortal day in 1896,
hadn't come out with the first car,
the Duryea? What impact has the
car had on American life and cul-
ture? The American Automobile
Centennial Commission (AACC)
wants you to know.
"One in seven jobs in America
is related to the automotive in-
dustry," says AACC President
Jeff Smith. So, throughout the
country, communities are host-
ing parades, festivals, exhibits
and displays in a week-long cele-
bration as part of the year-long
100th anniversary salute to cars,
cars, cars.
