Though occasionally cursed for its slow speed, SFC Mark Ounan's 1918 Dodge staff car was unarguably the mechanical hero of the trip. It's a true U.S. Army veteran, sold as surplus in Utah in the 1930s. It's pictured here on the Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah, which has a portion of the original Lincoln Highway as it was in 1919, including this bridge that was built of scrub cedar.
