The Cugnot Steam Wagon is generally considered to be the first automobile. The first self propelled road vehicle. It can be seen today in Paris at the Musee des Arts et Metiers.

Being such a famous vehicle, Cugnot's Steam Wagon's image has been reproduced numerous times, and museum modelers have created miniature reproductions for exhibits. The material in the Virtual Steam Car Museum falls primarily into this catagory.
