A fun scene from 1915's "The Jitney Romance". Charlie drives what looks like a stock c1909-1912 Hupmobile Model 20 roadster pursued by a brass (1913?) Model T Ford Touring. The Hupp really has is over the Ford in this film!

I followed a Hupp 20 on tour with my T and I can assure you that the Hupp never was a match for a T. The poor thing couldn't get out of its own way.

It's interesting that both cars were introduced in 1909. The Model T lasted a bit longer, however. Hupp replaced their Model 20 with the 32 in 1912.

Bobby Hupp left Ford Motor Company at the Piquette Plant in about 1908 to start his own Hupmobile Company. Prior to Ford, he worked for Oldsmobile.

"Jitney" also referred to a buffalo nickel
