Owner: Todd McGrew

Matthews, NC

I was most impressed that Todd drove his 1921 Milburn to Cars & Coffee in Charlotte. He definitely had the oldest and most unusual car at the show.

The Milburn Electric cars were built in Toledo, Ohio from 1914 through 1923. There were four thousand produced and around fifty are know to still exist.

The batteries were stored in both the front and rear of the car. The car has four forward speeds and two reverse speeds. There were several body styles including a truck and a roadster. This car's range is 50 miles on a charge and it has a top speed of 15 mph. The roadster was about 2 mph faster, mainly because of itís overall height and weight.

Among the famous people that owned Milburn Electric cars were legendary football coach Amos Alonzo Stagg and President Woodrow Wilson, who used his to drive around the White House grounds. His secret service men also had Milburn electric cars.

As you look at the pictures of Toddís car notice the steering and brake controls. The direction of the electric motors is changed by a pedal.

Seeing Toddís Milburn up close and running is amazing.
