Stutz Race Phoenix  
This postcard showing a Stutz that took part in a race from Los Angeles to Phoenix has been listed on EBay. As far as I can determine, this was the Cactus Derby, which began in 1907. The last race was in 1914. By 1915, so many people were driving from Los Angeles to Phoenix that it was no longer viewed as much of an accomplishment, The Times said. Bidding starts at $99.
