Greenfield Village’s Old Car Festival Features 1770 Fardier de Cugnot Replica

Among the 700 or so vehicles to be displayed at the 61st Annual Old Car Festival, Sept. 10-11, one will stand out from the rest – a historically-accurate replica of the 1770 Fardier de Cugnot, a steam-powered wheel cart considered to be the first self-propelled vehicle ever made.
