The frame is of pressed steel drilled for lightness. The wheelbase is 8ft. 3in.; the steering column is inclined at 30º. There is no change-speed gear; two ignitions are fitted, high and low tension. The carburetter is automatic; a separate throttle valve is fitted close to each cylinder, and arrangements are made so that any one or more cylinders can be cut out. The radiator is of honeycomb type. The fuel consumption is at the enormous rate of 12.5 gallons her hour, while the speed is said to attain 115 miles per hous. This huge car is property of a young American lady, Miss Hockenhull."Miss Hockenhull, probably, was the first woman to drive a straight eight--- The Autocar (Mar 26, 1904)
