History museum hosts a day for Nash lovers
SYCAMORE – On Saturday, Sept. 21, the Sycamore History Museum will host a first-time event for Nash car enthusiasts – a Nash Car History Day, featuring guest speakers, a trip to Cortland, where Nash Motors had its beginnings, and a cruise through Culver’s.
The program is scheduled from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the history museum, 1730 N. Main St. in Sycamore. Speakers sharing Nash Car history will begin at 1 p.m.
Charles W. Nash, founder of the company, was born in Cortland, where his vision began. His legacy grew into a company that at one time was the third largest car manufacturer. Nash’s slogan in the 1920s and 1930s was, “Give the customer more than he has paid for,” and the cars lived up to that motto. Nash Motors made cars from 1916 to 1937, then became Nash-Kelvinator, and in 1954, American Motors Corporation. Innovations included a straight-eight engine with overhead valves, twin spark plugs, and nine crankshaft bearings.
