A very special car is going up for auction next month -- the 1884 De Dion Bouton et Trepardoux Dos-a-Dos Steam Runabout.

Never heard of it? It just happens to be the worlds oldest running automobile. It's also the winner of Europe's first ever motor vehicle race. Okay, it was the only car in the race. But this steam powered baby finished the 19 mile course at a break-neck speed of 37 miles per hour. And it only took a half hour to get it warmed up.

You can find more information and a picture gallery at
