Let's take a look at Dr. Dykes 1905 White 'Whistling Billy' re-creation. This steamer terrorized all the gasoline-engined racers in the summer of 1905. Even Louis Chevrolet and the great Barney Oldfield were beaten by this car. You can find more on the web site, Steam Car.Net.
From the site: "This is a faithful rebuild of the car from the photographs, made easier by the statement by the White Sewing Machine Company that their racing car was made almost entirely from standard parts. The engine is from a 1907 20hp tourer that was written off in London in 1908. It has the required high pressure piston valve and the original car's water pumps, oiler, pedals, instruments and other parts. The flywheel has been lightened. The steam pressure will be 600 to 800psi (plus a bit!) with a temperature of 750 deg F. The top speed should be near 100mph."
