Average Man's Runabout
The Adams Automobile Co.
Hiawatha, Kansas

George Adam of Hiawatha, Kansas, produced an American Automobile called the "Average Man's Runabout" for only one year, 1906.

This automobile was equipped with a 10 horsepower, double opposed, air cooled, 2 cycle engine located under the hood and place crosswise.

Power was transmitted through knuckle joints and shaft to a friction transmission and then to the rear axle by a single chain. The body was the latest Runabout style and cost $400.00. It had a 76 inch wheel base and a 50 inch tread. The wood wheels were fitted with 28 inch x 2 1/2 inch tires. Wheel steering was employed and on top of the steering wheel was spark and throttle controlling levers. One foot pedal operated the emergency brake, while another applied the friction wheel and brake. A side lever gave the operator different speeds ahead and reverse.
