Many car enthusiasts would easily agree to a drive across the country. We're not sure whether Edgar "Ned" Wilcox was an enthusiast, but he did the trip--from Traverse City, Mich., to Tacoma, Wash., in 1923, driving a Case Six.

The trip took Wilcox and his passengers 18 days, including delays for weather and mechanical issues.

While on the trip, Wilcox took copious notes describing the adventure. Those words were discovered amongst family memorabilia in 2007 by Wilcox's grandson.

Enjoy a look back at a time when the automobile wasn't as prevalent and paved roads were a luxury, courtesy of our friends at Hagerty.
