Hi all. I have been lurking for years but this may be of interest and I may be able to get more info here then just local lore.... I just bought a home with a nice three bay barn in the back yard. Naturally excited to begin with I was really excited when I found out prior to purchase that the barn was used to build race cars in the early teens. I am looking for info on Aurthur Applegate of Eatontown Nj. The history packet we got with the house summarized that he "bought the Lozier Auto Company and three cars." He built the "Applegate Special" in the garage. I assume that he bought the Lozier race team and parts when they liquidated. What really fired me up as a pilot and armchair aviation historian nut/car guy was that Applegate was friendly enough to pal around with Eddie Rickenbacker and invited him to prepare his car here prior to the 1916 Sheepshead Bay race that he went on to win. Also mentioned as doing prep work here for that race were drivers Ralph Mulford and Billy Chandler. I am looking for anything related to these people and cars! I am getting in touch with the local historical society and the son of the owner who owned the place after Applegate.
